Syrian rebel leader denies he fled

A top Syrian rebel commander denies that he abandoned his post and says he is working to resolve fighting among opposition groups in the country's north, he told CNN on Thursday.

In the meantime, a decision by the United States and Britain to halt nonlethal aid makes sense, said Salim Idriss, chief of staff of the Free Syrian Army.

Several U.S. administration officials had said that the fate of Idriss, a top rebel commander supported by the West, was uncertain as conflicts persisted between the Free Syrian Army and Islamist groups.

Idriss denied reports that he fled to a Gulf state after the Islamic Front allegedly seized a warehouse held by the Free Syrian Army.
