Terrorists Receive New Arms Cargos from Turkey
The new batch of arms includes BM-21 122-mm Grad multiple rocket launchers, sources said on Wednesday.
Lattakia is a province bordering Turkey. The Syrian army and popular forces have recently pushed the militant groups back from more territories in the Northern part of Lattakia province and took back several villages and heights.
Earlier this week, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said that more than 80 nations, particularly Turkey and Saudi Arabia, have provided financial, logistical and material assistance to terrorist groups, who are fighting in Syria.
The Syrian leader described foreign sponsorship as “active” and “unlimited.” Some of those countries support radicals “directly with money, with logistical support, with armaments, with recruitments,” he noted in an interview with Spain’s El Pais newspaper.
Others help “them politically, in different international forums”, he added.
Assad accused Saudi Arabia of being the key financial backer of the militants, who are trying to overthrow him. He also urged the international community to prevent “other countries, specially Turkey, from sending more recruits, more terrorists, more armaments, or any kind of logistical support” to terrorists, if it wants to see an efficient ceasefire in Syria.
