« The smuggling of weapons into Syria is probably a case where the objectives of the Libyan rebels coincide with those of Washington »
- Foreign Policy
FOREIGN POLICY, the magazine founded by Huntington (the « war of civilizations ») (1), published on 10 July an article entitled « Comrades in Arms: How Libya sends weapons to Syria’s rebels” (2), where the authors Jenan Moussa and Harald Doornbos « provide further evidence of transfer operations of illegal weapons from Libya into Syria, which took place during one year, in violation the UN embargo on the entry or exit of weapons from Libya. »
THE LIBYAN CHAIN
Foreign Policy reveals that a « former » rebel commander in Benghazi responsible of arms trafficking between Libya and Syria, « personally organized two arms shipments by sea from Benghazi to the port of Alexandretta (Iskenderun) in Turkey this year. The weapons were then transported overland, with the knowledge of the Turkish authorities (and thus NATO), and then delivered to the rebel forces in northern Syria. »
The review of the CFR gives further details on the contacts and the complicity of NATO and Turkish Islamists of the AKP: « When we have enough (weapons and equipment), we rent a ship or a plane and send everything to Syria, via our contacts in Turkey and more rarely in Jordan (…) Libyan rebels have also sent aid to the Syrian opposition by air. 27 such flights have occurred to date, said the former commander: 23 from Libya to the city of Gaziantep in Turkey, and 4 to an airport in Jordan. Planes mostly take off from Benghazi, but also depart from Tripoli and the eastern airport of al-Abraq, close to the town of al-Bayda. Often they are smaller planes » said the former commander. « The organizer of these flights said that the last plane carrying Libyan weapons flew to Ganziantep late May. From there, the weapons were brought into rebel territory in northern Syria, a border region with rebel-friendly Turkey. »
HERE AGAIN HABDELHAKIM BELHADJ!
About this « former » rebel commander, ELAC Website revealed in November 2011 (3) that he is Habdelhakim Belhadj, Libyan executive of al-Qaeda and former Guantanamo (prisoner) who became military commander of the Libyan so-called NTC and appointed « Military Governor of Tripoli » in late August 2011 by the French generals of NATO. And that he was on a mission for the special services of NATO in Syria, in charge of organizing the pseudo FSA katibas and integrate the jihadists in it. What does not explain, of course, FOREIGN POLICY. As the « comrades in arms » are not only the Libyan and Syrian jihadists but also those of NATO …
Belhadj feels abandoned by his partners of the USA and NATO and « whistle-blower », especially because he was one of the liege subjects of the former Emir of Qatar retired by Washington a few days ago. For supporting al-Qaeda and AQIM in particular in Libya, Mali and Syria, red line for the State Department, exceeded by Qatar.
Belhadj is also in Libya the head of al-Wattan party – whose colors are those of the Qatari flag – a powerful party-militia formed on the organizational model of Hezbollah, with marketing taken over by U.S. agencies (the party logo is even in English). Al-Watan is now probably in Libya the only organized political force. What did not stop it to take a huge defeat in the latest Libyan elections, rigged and manipulated by NATO to benefit its Liberal protégés (4).
The attack against the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi (5) and the Embassy of France in Tripoli (6) are the result of the shelving in Libya of the jihadists. And the sacking by Washington of the Qatari Emir results – in part – also from these attacks. Called here a vicious circle …
THE FRENCH « MILANS » DELIVERED TO AL-NOSRA VIA LIBYA …
New case involving the Libyan sector. The French missiles in the hands of al-Nosra in Syria. They are the terrorists of al-Nosra who use them in the suburb of Idleb (northwest) and in the town of Al Maqir on the rif in the north of Aleppo. These missile launchers are used against tanks of the Syrian army says Syria Thruth website, which gives an interesting point: « To avoid that it is known, the terrorists use in their conversation the name “Red Arrow » to describe these weapons. This missile launchers also allowed the rebels to destroy the last two weeks tanks and armored vehicles of the Syrian army in the region of Al Rachedin and Tal Raafat on the Aleppo rif, or in the suburbs of Idleb .
These « Milans » that France and Germany are trying to sell to European armies and Israel have a range of three kilometers and are controllable through a wire guidance system. No information was available on how the delivery of these weapons to jihadists took place. We do not know if France has delivered them directly to the terrorists or through its Libyan contacts?
France had made available to the NTC Libyan rebels large quantities of these weapons in 2011, when it was engaged in a major offensive against Gaddafi’s Libya. France benefits in Syria from the lifting of the ban on the delivery of arms to terrorists decided by the EU. And this is the CIA that trains the rebels to use these sophisticated weapons in camps in Jordan and Turkey.
RUSSIA SEEKS AN INVESTIGATION ON LIBYAN WEAPONS TRAFFICKING
« The Security Council of the UN is to investigate the reports of illegal arms supplies from Libya to the Syrian opposition », said on June 28 Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. « If true, this is a flagrant violation of the total embargo imposed by the Security Council as well on the weapons supplied to Libya as on those from the latter. »
« The committee of the Security Council of the UN, responsible for ensuring compliance with the embargo should pay attention to these publications and take appropriate investigation », said Mr Lavrov at a press conference in Moscow.
According to him, the media of the United States and other countries report that weapons from the region are transported to Syria and that « Libyan weapons are being bought by European countries and redirected to Syria via the Persian Gulf « . « According to U.S. media, the illegal supplies from Libya have been practiced for a rather long time, » added the minister, citing a survey by the New York Times. The Foreign Policy article only confirms the arming by NATO of its jihadist « comrades in arms ».
