West prepares to send more weapons to Syria
Informed diplomats have said a plan for providing foreign-backed militants fighting against the Syrian government in the eastern city of Dara’a and on the northern boarders with Turkey with weapons has entered the implementation phase.
There are reports that armored vehicles including a shipment of t-62 and t-55 tanks, which are old armored Russian tanks collected in Libya and transferred to Syria, have reached foreign-backed militants through different secret ways.
The US and its allies are geared up to disturb the military balance, prolong the clashes and change the situation into a war of attrition in Syria, Al Quds Al Arabi reported.
There have been reports of a plan for training and organizing thousands of Syrian volunteers including those who had avoided military service or civilians capable of carrying weapons and taking military training.
A comprehensive reconnaissance mission is currently underway on the boarders of Syria’s neighboring countries as a preparatory measure for launching arms to the foreign-backed militants.
The mission seems to be a good reason for the presence of 8000 American, Britain and French forces on the boarders of Syria with Turkey and Jordan to supervise the process of arming and delivering weapons to the foreign-backed militants.
There are also reports that opposition groups consisting of 650 military groups are equipped with new arms in Dara’a.
The process of arming the foreign-backed militants is expected to be carried out by training around 3000 Syrian Kurds who had failed to get Syrian residency in the past, numerous volunteer Syrian refugees including officers and those who had fled to Turkey, and thousands of people who had attempted to establish “awareness organization.”
The Syria crisis began in March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of government forces, have been killed.
Damascus says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants are foreign nationals.
The Syrian government says the West and its regional allies — especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey — are supporting the militants.
In addition, several international human rights organizations say the militants operating in Syria have committed war crimes.
