Syria says anti-Assad protesters use Israeli-made weapons

The Syrian delegation to the Arab League on Sunday claimed that anti-government protesters in Syria have been found to have been using weapons that were manufactured in Israel, Israel Radio reported.
The Syrian delegation said during the Cairo meeting that Syrian TV will show images of Israeli-made grenades and machine guns that were taken from dissidents calling for Syrian President Bashar Assad to step down.
Arab foreign ministers held an urgent meeting on Sunday to discuss whether to suspend Syria from their regional organization over Assad's military crackdown on protests against his rule.
According to Israel Radio, Syria was the only country present not to send its foreign minister, but rather a lower level official.
