The United States increased more than twice its supply of light weaponry and munitions to militants linked to the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA)'s Supreme Military Command in the month of January.
Accordingly, the country has delivered over 600 tons of military aid to militants since the launch of the Geneva II crisis talks in Switzerland on January 22.
The Supreme Military Command is aligned to the Western-backed opposition Syrian National Coalition (SNC) which is currently in talks with the government.
Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Feisal al-Meqdad has slammed Washington for supporting "terrorist groups," with Damascus issuing a separate statement accusing the US of "undermining" the Geneva II talks.
The opposition and its Western supporters insist that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad must step down and a transitional government be formed in Syria.
Damascus rejects the demand, arguing that the foreign-backed SNC does not represent the Syrian opposition.
