The United States is providing $195 million in food and humanitarian aid to Syria to mark the end of Ramadan for Muslims, President Barack Obama said on Wednesday.

Washington has been slow to provide weapons for Syrian rebels struggling to toppled Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

A statement from Obama marking Eid al-Fitr, a festival marking the end of Ramadan, said the $195 million in aid would bring the U.S. humanitarian contribution to more than $1 billion since the Syrian crisis began.
