Source Reveals 4 Arab States’ Plan to Help Syrian Gov’t
Mujtahid, a Saudi political activist who is believed to be a member of or have a well-connected source in the royal family, wrote on his tweeter page on Saturday that the four countries are trying to help the Syrian government with reconstruction efforts to become prepared for fiercer battles against the terrorist groups.
According to him, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and the US are opposed to plans which strengthen the Syrian government.
Saudi deputy Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman is one of the staunch opponents of such plans, and Syrian chief of the office of home security general Ali Mamlouk’s recent visit to Saudi Arabia was aimed at convincing him to agree with the reconstruction plans, Mujtahid said.
Meantime, he disclosed that despite efforts underway to help the Syrian people to return to their good days, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar and the US still insist on supporting and training what they call “moderate terrorists” to fight against the Syrian government.
Syria has been grappling with a deadly crisis since March 2011. The violence fuelled by Takfiri groups has so far claimed the lives of over 210,000 people, according to reports. New figures show that over 76,000 people, including thousands of children, lost their lives in Syria last year.
Over 3.8 million Syrians have left their country since the beginning of the crisis. According to reports, more than seven million Syrians have become internally displaced.
The regional and even western officials and analysts have blamed Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Israel for the terrorist acts in Syria.
In late April, a ranking Takfiri militant disclosed that Ankara, Riyadh and Doha masterminded and led the terrorists’ attacks in Syria, adding that they have been preparing militants and equipment for the assaults.
“Turkey, backed by Saudi Arabia and Qatar, has sent over 5,000 foreign-backed terrorists to Syria through its borders to help the Al-Nusra Front terrorist group to attack Jisr al-Shaghour in Idlib,” a source close to Ahrar al-Sham Takfiri group said.
Senior Iraqi and Syrian officials have repeatedly criticized Turkey over links to the militants, including Turkish involvement in buying oil from both the ISIL and al-Nusra Front, and providing a corridor for thousands of terrorists to get into Syria.
Also in December, Syrian Prime Minister Wael al-Halqi said Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Jordan have formed an alliance with Israel in war on Damascus.
Halqi described Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Jordan’s role in Syria as not just “unconstructive” but “destructive”, and said, “These countries no more see the Zionist regime as their enemy and have entered the war against the Syrian people in an alliance with the regime.”
He expressed confidence that the Syrian people and army would soon clean their country from the terrorists, and said, “2015 will be a determining year for Syria.”
