Former Qatari Foreign Minister, Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabr Al Thani, revealed his country’s vile role in igniting and fueling the Syrian uprising in March 2011, which has eventually turned into one of the world’s bloodiest proxy wars.

Bin Jassim’s remarks came as he was interviewed by the Financial Times days ago. Even though the facts unveiled are tremendously shocking, the interview has been suspiciously ignored and undervalued by most of Arabic and western media outlets.

The former foreign minister made it clear that what has happened in Syria is not a ‘revolution’, rather an ‘international gameplay’ whereby the United States has given ‘the green light’ to both Saudi Arabia and Qatar to intervene in Syria’s affairs.

I will tell you one thing. Ever since we got involved in the Syrian crisis, we’ve been given the leading role in all of this, thanks to the Saudis’ reluctance at that point. Then some change occurred without our knowledge; the Saudis wanted us to take a back seat which eventually ended up in a competition. That was not good at all“, he told FT reporter.

Both the timing and significance of these remarks entirely refute the narratives invented and promoted by Saudi Arabia and other Arab and western governments about a revolution being erupted against the Syrian tyrant who tragically kills his own people, aided by Iran and Russia.

The misleading campaigns affected Assad’s allies as well. Russia and Iran have been labeled with destabilizing regional security and supporting terrorism, Hezbollah has been blacklisted as a terrorist group for fighting alongside the Syrian Army.

In parallel, Jassim’s confessions might have serious repercussions for Saudi Arabia, Qatar and even the United States itself.

Legally speaking, the Syrian government, and upon these statements, is entitled to file a legal claim asking for trillions of dollars to cover the reconstruction, re-arming and equipping the Syrian Army, indemnifications for the families of victims affected by the war.

@Ying222Yang So, Saudi Arabia and Qatar should take most of the Syrian refugees then, and not the EU.

Interestingly, the recent Panamanian leak has put this very same individual under massive scrutiny. Are the two events linked?

Exactly , he is explicitly confirming the culpability of Qatar & Saudi , the same way the captured Qatari & Saudi officers abetting the terrorists on the ground , not to speak of Israelis & Turks
