Paris, (SANA)- Georges Malbrunot of Le Figaro newspaper revealed how the US, Saudi Arabia and Jordan have been supplying tons of weapons to the armed terrorist groups operating inside Syria, according to the Iranian Press TV.
The French reporter has provided details on how the US Central Intelligence Agency CIA is leading “massive arms deliveries” to the gunmen in Syria in coordination with Saudi Arabia and Jordan, in completion of his investigative reports proving the three countries’ involvement in supporting the terrorists fighting in the country.
The (CIA), and Saudi Arabia and Jordan have supplied about 600 tons of weapons in 2013 alone to the armed groups in Syria.
“The Americans hold the key to these arms deliveries. Without them, they couldn’t happen. CIA agents lead convoys of arms deliveries joined by the Free Syrian Army and Jordanian secret services,” Malbrunot said.
“The Saudis work behind the scene in charge of financing and arranging arms deliveries from eastern Europe to Jordan,” he added.
Malbrunot learned from sources that the weapons convoys are escorted by “unmanned aircraft guided from a CIA-led command center in Jordan”, according to the Press TV report released Saturday.
Last month, Malbrunot recounted the details of this operation in Le Figaro quoting a terrorist he met as saying that there is a direct contact between the gunmen and CIA officials in coordination with Saudi Arabia and a number of countries of the so-called “Friends of Syria”.
According to terrorist Anwar, convoys of cars carrying CIA and Jordanian intelligence agents and others fully loaded with weapons set off from Jordanian borders in the evening and head into the Syrian territories.
Once 3 km inside Syria, the American and Jordanian agents go back, while the convoy goes on towards Damascus Countryside at night on a Syrian army checkpoint- free road with U.S. surveillance drones flying over to warn against the presence of the Syrian army.
Malbrunot revealed in his report that 15 tons of weapons reach the terrorists operating in Damascus suburbs each week, while other convoys head for Daraa.
The weapons convoys include Kalashnikovs, rocket launchers, rifles and anti-aircraft and anti-tank guns, mostly funded by Saudi Arabia and sent onboard Saudi aircrafts to secret military airports in southern Jordan.
A rising number of extremists with Western passports are traveling to Syria, raising fears among American and European intelligence officials of a new terrorist threat when the fighters return home:
