Ali Hashim: al-Jazeera Channel Smuggled Thuraya Communication Devices into Syria through Turkey

Former al-Jazeera channel correspondent, Ali Hashim, said on Tuesday that the channel has smuggled Thuraya communication devices and BGAN satellite internet devices into Syria through Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey.

In an interview with al-Safir Newspaper, Hashim underscored that al-Jazeera channel paid USD 50,000 for each device smuggled into Syria for the opposition to relate their fabricated stories to the channel.

He stressed that al-Jazeera administration forced him not to broadcast the footages of gunmen at the Syrian-Lebanese borders, pointing out that al-Jazeera has lost credibility because of its one-sided view and the absence of ‘the other opinion’.
