"The Military Council (is) distributing the salaries, with Qatari support... of $150 per person registered for two months," said Haji al-Bab, another insurgent commander.

Another commander of the armed gangs said the sources of the money were ‘Turkey and some Persian Gulf states.’

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011.

The Syrian government has long said that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country and accuses Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey of arming the opposition.

A recent New York Times report suggested that Saudi Arabia and Qatar have been funneling money and arms to Syrian insurgents for months.
