The U.S. has recently halted its funding of the White Helmets in Syria after supporting the group for several years, a CBS report stated on Thursday.
“Our meetings in March were very positive. There were even remarks from senior officials about long-term commitments even into 2020. There were no suggestions of stopping,” the head of the White Helmets, Raed Saleh, told CBS News.
According to the CBS report, the State Department’s funding of the White Helmets is currently “under active review.”
