Russian intelligence has information that U.S. troops are in Turkey near the country’s border with Syria, a senior Syrian official told WND today. In February, WND was first to report the U.S., Turkey and Jordan were running a training base for the Syrian rebels in the Jordanian town of Safawi in the country’s northern desert region, according to several knowledgeable Egyptian and Arab security officials speaking to WND. The security officials also claimed Saudi Arabia was sending weapons to the rebels via surrogates, including through Druze and Christian leaders in Lebanon such as Druze leader Walid Jumblatt; Saudi-Lebanese billionaire Saad Hariri, who recently served as Lebanon’s prime minister; and senior Lebanese opposition leader Samir Farid Geagea. The U.S. repeatedly has denied directly arming the rebels, stating it is only providing non-lethal aid. Any aid to the rebels is highly controversial.
WND reported in May there is growing collaboration between the Syrian opposition and al-Qaida as well as evidence the opposition is sending weapons to jihadists in Iraq. There are now widespread reports of al-Qaida fighters among the ranks of the opposition, with some jihadist branches reportedly officially joining the U.S.-supported Free Syrian Army.
Russia stands squarely in the Syrian camp.
NOT TO WORRY RUSSIA WE ARE GOING TO GIVE UP OUR NUKES, NEW MISSLES, PLANES, TROOPS IN THE FIELD, WHAT ELSE CAN WE DO FOR YOU?
