A Jordanian terrorist detained at the Syrian border while smuggling arms and ammunitions for terrorist and rebel groups revealed in his confession that Salafi extremist groups in Jordan are supporting Syrian rebels and their sabotage activities.
According to FNA dispatches, Abdul Rahman Jamal said that members of a Salafi group in Jordan had encouraged and helped him to move into Syria in a bid to fight the country’s ruler (Bashar al-Assad.)
Jamal said that he was tasked with supplying guns and ammunitions to so-called Free Syrian Army.
“Unfortunately, we were puppets in their (Salafi groups) hands since they had no policy but destruction and annihilation. They looked at us as a means of attaining their interests,” the detained terrorist stated.
The US and Israel and a number of Arab regimes are arming and training and funding terrorist groups in Syria.
Many senior analysts and political experts in the Middle-East are concerned about the growing alliance between the US and the Al Qaeda terrorist group, cautioning that Washington is reviving the group to target security of the region.
In relevant remarks in June, a prominent Jordanian lawmaker mocked the US excuse for its military presence in the region under the guise of war on terrorism, saying that Washington is the main supporter of terrorists, specially the Al Qaeda in Syria.
“…first of all, terrorism is a product of Americans and they were the ones who supported the Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and are now supporting the Al Qaeda terrorism which has targeted Syria,” Fowad Dabor told FNA in Amman at the time.
“These are the Americans are providing terrorists in Syria with all types of military, arms, logistic, training and financial aids. In fact, they are deployed in the region and claim to be fighting against terrorism, while they themselves are terrorists,” the Jordanian legislator underscored.
