Leaders and representatives of Syria’s most prominent tribes rejected yesterday, Friday, the offer made by Jordan’s king, Abdullah to help Syrian and Iraqi tribes fighting ISIS.

The tribes also refused all ‘calls and projects’ that aim to deprive them of their ‘national, Syrian and Arab essence’, accusing the king of supporting ‘terrorists’ in Syria.

More than 12 tribes across Syria have participated in the meeting that was held in the Syrian capital. Some of these tribes have its extensions [clans] in neighboring Iraq and Jordan.

Sheikh Mohammed Fares al-Abd al-Rahman of the prestigious Tay tribe said during the press conference that ‘Jordan’ is well aware of the American project aiming to dismantle the region on sectarian basis.

The meeting came in response to the remarks made earlier this week by the Jordanian king Abdullah who promised to arm tribes in Syria and Iraq in their fight against ISIS.

Syria has for long accused Jordan of supporting ‘Islamic terrorists’ fighting president Bashar al-Assad, through sheltering them, and allowing them to cross the borders. According to the Syrian state, Jordan is home of many ‘operation rooms’ where the battles against the Syrian Army are run.

Syria has been engaged in noxious crisis when the 2011 demonstrations turned into a ferocious war that magnetized extremist militants worldwide including the blacklisted al-Qaeda organization and more recently the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS)
