Terrorists are Equipped with Western Weapons in Syria

by Anna Jaunger, from the Inside Syria Media Center

Inside Syria Media Center continues publishing some evidence of the U.S.-made weapons supply to ISIS and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) terrorists in Syria.

According to Syrian General Ali Al-Ali, the United States illegally delivered at least 1,500 trucks with military equipment and weapons for terrorists in Syria between June 5 and September 15 this year.

The General reported that all Washington’s statements regarding this military equipment was intended for the U.S. allies were false. Ultimately, the weapons almost always come into the hands of terrorists. In support of his words, Ali Al-Ali analyzed some NATO weapons captured by the Syrian army from ISIS and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham army depots.

The Austrian Glock 19 pistol especially is among the most popular weapons. In 2014, ISIS released footage, where terrorists executed several hostages using such kind of pistols. Later, it turned out that the pistols were delivered to the Iraqi law enforcement agencies by the U.S. in 2003-2004.

The U.S.-made M16 Assault Rifle has become a symbol of terrorists in Syria. The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has repeatedly found military equipment stamped ‘Property of U.S. Govt’. This fact confirms that ISIS and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham terrorists use the U.S.-made M16 rifles, not unlicensed Chinese copies.

The Belgian FN FAL Assault Rifle that earlier became standard rifle ammunition for member states of NATO is often found in ISIS weapons deports. This 7.62×51mm NATO battle rifle equipped with sniper scope is used to conduct aimed fire and neutralize enemy’s manpower during military operations in urban conditions.

Besides, the German Heckler & Koch MP5 Submachine Gun used by the U.S. and European law enforcement agencies, is also popular among ISIS fighters. All data of this weapon supplies is strongly classified, and there isn’t such kind of information in any open sources. Probably, the existence of these weapons, including highly specialized MP-5K, as well as the unceasing weapons landing is directly linked to military operations of the U.S.-led international coalition in Syria and Iraq.

Against this background, it also should be mentioned about ISIS weapons depot in Al-Mayadeen. The SAA High Command announced that ISIS terrorists had used a huge arsenal of M16 and FN FAL assault rifles, U.S.-made machine guns, AA mounts, grenade launchers, and even British 155 mm howitzer.

Besides, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi admitted that the U.S.-made M2A1 heavy machine gun also fell into the hands of terrorists. This weapon is usually installed on Humwee vehicles. We remind that the Iraqi Army lost about 2,500 of these armored vehicles only in Mosul.

In fact, terrorists from all over the Middle East prefer to use weapons delivered from the U.S. Their interest is easy to be explained. The U.S. weapons are often delivered in circumvention of international law, so it is easier to get it. According to Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) data, the United States is an absolute leader in the number of signed contracts regarding weapons supply over the past 5 years.
In this regard, Syrians strongly oppose arms dealers, who continue to be enriched by killing civilians. Syrian enemies are politicians who have unprecedented profits from indiscriminate weapon trade. They force Syrians to fight against one another in the senseless fratricidal war, squashing the government forces and armed opposition.

Continuing to profit from the war, the U.S. and European weapons lobby earns millions of dollars by delivering weapons to different unstable regions. Entire corporations are working to create new ways for illegal weapons supply. They have learned to make money on human lives even during World War II, and successfully continue these traditions nowadays. That’s why only 13 congressmen voted for the law that prevents weapons supply to terrorists (2 per cent of the U.S. House of Representatives). It’s simply not profitable for the U.S. and European politicians.

  1. It seems apparent that governments involved with the carnage within Syria place little value upon life. Next time one of those governments requests loyalty in whatever form, one knows the answer.

    From the comments section ….”Mention should go to Dilyana Gaytandzhieva (formerly of Trud newspaper) who documented the CIA – Air NATO import of weapons via the proprietary Silk Airways from Azerbaijan. Of course, she lost her job for witnessing and documenting the truth – but at least she hasn’t been “Gladio B’d.” We need more real journalists of her ilk – we’ve more than enough presstitute stenographers as it is.

    ……The trail of evidence to crime scenes, such as those now being uncovered in Syria, must go back decades to previous military and covert operations conducted across the globe.
    But if the US has successfully placed itself beyond international law by simply making up stories that are dutifully embraced by our spineless media (war on terror, WMD and now Russian hacking) it seems unlikely it will restrain the aggressive tendencies of tomorrow’s hawks?
    Not a single person was held to account after 9/11 or Iraq because even by then the pattern of lies and disinformation (allied to large doses of public gullability) was an already well established modus operandi. For this reason it seems very unlikely that any high ranking official will be brought to book even if filmed teaching Sunni fanatics the most reliable way to terrorise an unarmed population
    In fact those who perpetrate terrible crimes are punished with fabulous wealth, book deals, newspaper articles, and even the occasional slot on the Graham Norton show – no wonder there is a queue straining at the lease to add their name to the list of infamy.
    and another……The whole World has known for some time that the US was supporting terrorism in the Middle East while pretending otherwise! This article then is no surprise. American allies do not have the intestinal fortitude to call the US on its betrayal of the West. By supporting, arming and funding terrorism (moderate terrorists is a joke) the US has shown everyone that it cannot be trusted and it cannot be the leader of the fight against terrorism. In point of fact, the US itself, is the biggest terrorist nation on the face of the Earth!
    All well informed and excellent.

    Why do these arms companies need to find new ways to supply weapons illegally when they could just sell them to Saudi Arabia or Israel and let those countries pass them on?

      They are selling them to SA and the weapons are being delivered to their terrorists of choice.All to cover their butts of course since they will not be viewed of providing them directly.
