The United States eased restrictions on trade with Syria's opposition, aimed at helping supply critical needs of Syrians in "liberated areas".

The new sanctions waivers announced by the State and Treasury Departments allows companies to supply software, technology, reconstruction and power generation equipment, as well as farm and food production equipment to opposition-controlled areas. It also allows them to buy oil from the opposition.
