A report published by The Sunday Times reveals that British intelligence has been helping insurgents launch attacks on Syrian forces.

The report quoted an unnamed Syrian official as saying British spies, based in Cyprus, gather the intelligence.

They then pass it on to Turkish and American sources and the Turkish sources ultimately pass on the intelligence to Syrian insurgents.

The disclosure provided further evidence that British MI6 is playing a covert role in the anti-Syria campaign.

The official said UK has two military bases in Cyprus, one in Dhekelia and the other in Akrotiri.

"British intelligence is observing things closely from Cyprus," the official told the newspaper.

"The British are giving the information to the Turks and the Americans."

"The British monitor communications about movements of the government Army," the official noted.

The British foreign secretary has already confirmed that London is supplying Syrian insurgents with body armor and medical and communications equipment.

William Hague earlier stated that he will fund the gunmen in Syrian will all that they need.
