I don't have any direct source of information to settle this, but that
statement doesn't quite square with what the BBC reporter mentioned in
passing a couple days ago. That correspondent was explaining the rebels'
increasing lack of arms forcing them into tactical retreats from areas
they had held. He said that Qatar had ceased supplying arms to the rebels
under pressure from the US.

I will keep my eyes open for further corroboration (or contradiction) of
that remark.
