הקשר הסורי: הסיפור האמיתי | עובדה
At the end of 2012, rebels first entered for a meeting with Israeli Unit 504 of the IDF (human intelligence) after an officer serving along the border chatted with Syrian rebels through his tracker (usually a Bedouin) near Breiqa. 4 Syrians entered in that first meeting. During this and subsequent meetings, the issue of providing security around the border area for medical care was mentioned.

In 2013, Israel's Defense Minister, Moshe Yaalon, meets with 3 rebel commanders. "The meeting, of course, was in our territory."

Weeks later, the Syrians call asking for medical care. One of the rebel commanders who coordinated the evacuation asked Israel to hide the coordination from his faction, to pretend that they do not know him. The first group was made up of 7 rebels.

There was a limited budget for the medical care and the Israelis in charge of deciding who comes in refused some cases because they were deemed very expensive.

One of Israel's key interlocutors who was a rebel commander around Breiqa who owned a clothing shop before the revolution. He joined the rebels after seeing the regime firing at protesters. He was a young man with gel in his hair. In 2013, Israel made a deal with this man - intelligence for medical care for members of his faction.

Meetings were held in the Hazeqa base opposite Be'r Ajam. Unit 504 maintained daily contact with this commander. He provided intelligence about the location of a group intending to carry out a terrorist attack in late 2013 and prevents it. He was injured in the fighting when the regime advanced on southern Syria and died.

The program mentions foreign reports about rebels providing intelligence for the assassination of Samir Kuntar, but does not confirm it.

"Multiple" attacks were prevented thanks to this cooperation with the rebels, according to a retired officer in Unit 504.

The program mentions the provision of light arms very briefly (one sentence). The program mentions at the end that Israel provided training to Syrian rebels on how to secure evidence of CW attacks. The rebels brought an object (probably a shell casing or something like this) that "provided the first proof of nerve agent use" to the international community. This intelligence was provided to Obama during his visit to Israel [March 2013].

Turkey sends weapons to Syrian rebels facing Russian-backed assault: Syrian sources - Reuters, May 25, 2019
Ankara stepped up supplies in recent days after failing to persuade Russia in recent meetings of a joint working group that it should end its escalation to avert a major influx of refugees pouring into Turkey, two senior opposition figures said.

The delivery of dozens of armoured vehicles, Grad rocket launchers, anti-tank guided missiles and so-called TOW missiles, helped roll back some army gains and retake the strategically located town of Kfar Nabouda, one senior opposition figure said.

The New Humanitarian | UK keeps limits on cash aid in Syria over counter-terror fears
Al-Hol residents have never been receiving cash aid but DFID, the UK’s government aid agency, paused all aid programmes that involved money transfers in the northeast early last month – a suspension that does affect another 50,000 people who were forced to flee their homes at earlier stages in the Syrian war, many to get away from areas of IS control.

Fe Kagahastian, who helps coordinate agencies working on cash-based programmes in the region as part of Norwegian Refugee Council's global roster of cash experts, said another donor has stepped in to fill the cash aid gap left by the UK in northeastern Syria.

While this means disruption was minimised, she said that residents of Roj, Newroz, and Twahini camps are among those still likely to miss the $15-$60 per month (depending on family size) they had been counting on during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
