Damascus, Syria (1:23 A.M.) – Syrian forces intercepted a smuggling car loaded with armament destined for the deignated terrorist group Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Nusra Front) in Dara’a countryside.

The shipment consisted of five US-manufactured TOW missiles, 30 grenade launcher rounds, dozens of RPG missiles, and a large amount of rifle ammunition. According to a Syrian Army source, the military received information about  this shipment and its designated destination through an anonymous rebel source (likely a rival faction).

Noticeably, there has been a spike in weapon smuggling in Damascus’s vicinity as the SAA managed to halt a series of TOW missile shipments last of which was in Barzeh district of Damascus. It is not unlikely that a foreign sponsor is invested in initiating a major battle in the capital where rebels find themselves increasingly isolated and choked with every passing day.

Nusra is just the middle-man between Israel and ISIS.

ISIS = Israeli Secret Intelligence Service.

Nonsense! Israel hasn’t TOWs, they use Spike which is made locally, as most of their missiles : they prefer not to rely on the US, especially while they were near to end fucked by lack of supplies in 1973. Saudi Arabia bought 15,000 TOWs and around 750 launchers for 1.1bln$ from Raytheon in 2014, don’t look further. Israel doesn’t give a fuck about Arabs as long as : – Arabs don’t attack or intend to attack them. – There is no money to make. Nusra = Qaeda = Muslim Brotherhood offshoot… So is Hamas or Turkish AKP. It is dubious… Read more »

Sincerely, it’s really as much their interest having Julani or al-Badri ruling Syria as having Morsi in power in Egypt. Assad may not be friendly, he’s not crazy, actually, he’s even s.o. very clever. Why would they destabilise the region? Seriously, what could they gain through it? Have even more idiots wanting to destroy them? Most of anti-Israeli terrorism is Sunni-backed for a while. The only Shias really willing to attack seem to be Hezbollah and well, I think Iran is going on arming HB to keep a grip on Lebanon BUT actually, Iran received serious help from Israel so… Read more »

Seriously, what could they gain through it?

Easy answer : fuel and gas. Easy to steal with the help of KO.
To have KO, just send some trained mens, with weapons, with a lot of fake news.

That’s all.
