Jihad Syria: backed by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and US

‘Signs are increasing that Ankara is gradually, albeit somewhat reluctantly, giving up its support for the radical Islamist group known as Jabhat al-Nusra, which it once promoted as the most effective force in Syria againts Bashar al-Assa.’

Syria: Turkish authorities continue to facilitate flow of terrorists and arms to Syria

December 6, 2013

Damascus, (SANA) 

Foreign and Expatriates Ministry denounced as ‘reprehensible’ the ongoing Turkish authorities’ involvement in supporting the armed terrorist groups in Syria.

In two identical letters addressed to the UN Secretary-General and President of the United Nations Security Council, the ministry said the Turkish government continues, according to confirmed and documented reports, to offer training and logistical support to the armed terrorist groups.

The Turkish authorities are still providing terrorists with safe havens and facilitating the flow of terrorists and arms into Syria which, the letters said ”constitutes a flagrant violation of the international legitimacy resolutions, including the UNSC resolution No. 1373.”

The ministry cited several border crossings that the Turkish authorities are facilitating the passage of terrorists and arms through, including Bab al-Hawa, al-Fawz, Ein al-Bayda, Kherbet al-Jouz, al-Rihanieh, Ghazaleh, Tal al-Dahab and Atma.

The ministry said that the terrorist attacks stopped at nothing, targeting hospitals, educational institutions, worshiping places and diplomatic missions’ headquarters, not sparing even children in their schools and school buses.

The Foreign Ministry urged the international community to assume its responsibilities and undertake prompt measures according to the powers vested in it to combat terrorism targeting the Syrian people and state.

    Turkey’s Flirtation with Syrian Jihadism

    BAYRAM BALCI

    November 7, 2013

    The question of the extent and duration of Turkish support for jihadist factions opposing the Syrian regime has been a sensitive issue for some time. A key player in US and Western efforts to build up the non-Jihadist opposition to Assad, growing evidence of Turkish involvement with extremists has raised serious questions about Ankara’s priorities and Turkish prime minister Erdogan’s ability to make rational decisions when it comes to the Syria quagmire along his country’s southern border.

    For their part, Turkish authorities officially deny that they have provided any support to jihadists in Syria. While Erdogan and Turkey’s ruling AKP party are Islamists, Erdogan’s own public interpretation of Islam is incompatible with the radical doctrines of the jihadis. Even so, many sources allege that Turkey has supported both Jabhat al-Nusra and the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) in northern Syria. According to several Turkish journalists reporting from the border—like Amberin Zaman, who I recently met in Washington DC—Turkey has encouraged these Islamists in several ways.

    Most importantly, the Turkish army has turned a blind eye to the stream of foreign jihadis crossing into Syria. Ankara is also suspected of having delivered weapons to some of these Islamists and facilitated the treatment of wounded jihadis in Turkish hospitals near the border. PYD sources claim that the links between Turkey and the jihadis go far beyond such limited cooperation. But it is hard to believe the PYD leader Saleh Muslim Mohammed, when he says that Turkey even sent tanks to support the jihadis in their battles against the PYD. Both the PYD and the Assad government have made far-reaching claims about Turkish collaboration with al-Qaeda, but these claims lack credibility, given their obvious interest in embarrassing Erdogan.

    Nonetheless, the prime minister’s flirtations with jihadi factions, however limited, are not detached from Turkish state interests. By backing the jihadi factions, which are considered to be among the most effective opposition fighters, Erdogan probably sought to accelerate the end of the Syrian dictator and break the stalemate in Syria in the absence of effective action by the US and other Western allies.

    It has also been a method of putting pressure on the PYD, which has been fighting these same groups in places like Ras al-Ein, Afrin or, more recently, the Tel Kocer/Yaaroubia border crossing with Iraq. The emergence of a de facto Kurdish autonomy in northern Syria has already forced Ankara to take this factor into account in its ongoing dialogue with the PKK leadership, but this is a two-way street: by pushing back against the PKK’s proxy in Syria, Erdogan has sought to acquire more leverage in these negotiations.

    “Since the announcement of the date of Geneva 2 conference and the Iranian deal with P 5+1 group , a Saudi clear escalation has been made,” Syria’s permanent Envoy to the UN Bashar al-Jaafari said…

    December 6, 2013

    New York, (SANA)-Syria’s permanent Envoy to the UN Bashar al-Jaafari affirmed that there is a positive progress in the vision of a lot of Security Council member states regarding the situation in Syria.

    “All now know who is responsible for the deteriorating situation in Syria … Saudi Arabia and Qatar still practice a negative role through their support to the armed terrorist groups,” Al-Jaafari told Russia Today TV in an interview broadcast on Thursday.

    “The atmospheres seemed positive during the latest sessions of the Security council and the General Assembly on Syria… some states were trying to practice their negative role at a session of eliminating chemical weapons in Syria, but Coordinator of the UN-OPCW joint mission Sigrid Kaag presented a review about the case and she was very positive,” al-Jaafari said.

    He warned that a number of countries are still determined to their role in support of terrorism in Syria, on top of them, Saudi Arabia where the Saudi involvement, whether it was governmental or intelligence, or by Takfiri groups became a reality.

    “Since the announcement of the date of Geneva 2 conference and the Iranian deal with P 5+1 group , a Saudi clear escalation has been made,” Syria’s Envoy said.

    On the abduction of 12 nuns and orphans from Maaloula by terrorists, al-Jaafari affirmed that the Syrian government is following with great concern this issue to solve it, saying that Syria asked the UN Security council and countries which have influence on those groups to exert efforts to resolve this matter.

    He added that Syria has submitted 261 messages to the UN Security council and other subcommittees concerned in combating terrorism, whether the sub-committee of the resolution 1267 regarding Talban Movement or that related to resolution 1373 on combating terrorism, or the resolution 1450 on the terrorists’ acquiring of weapons.

    Al-Jaafari said that there were 6 letters among those sent to the UN in which the names of hundreds of the terrorists and their nationalities were specified.

    “Saudi Arabia seeks to foil Geneva 2 conference, and till now it didn’t announce that it will take part in,” he added.

    The Syrian envoy affirmed that the Syrian government reserves its right to call on all the countries involved in the Syrian bloodshed, destroying of economy, looting the factories to Turkey, abducing the citizens, killing them to pay compensations for all destruction.
