Syria terrorists demand sophisticated arms

355999_Syria-militantsThe foreign-sponsored Syrian opposition has called upon Arab states to pressure the international community to supply militants fighting against the Damascus government with “sophisticated” weapons.
Addressing the 25th Arab League summit in Kuwait City on Tuesday, Ahmad Jarba, who is the president of the so-called Syrian National Coalition, urged Arab leaders to “pressure the international community to abide by its promises to supply sophisticated weapons” to militants operating inside Syria.
He also called on Arab leaders to hand over Syria’s Arab League’s seat as well as the country’s embassies worldwide to the foreign-backed opposition.
Earlier, Saudi Crown Prince Sheikh Salman bin Abdulaziz, whose country is a major supporter of militant and terrorist groups fighting against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government, accused the world of “betraying” the so-called Syrian opposition by failing to arm them.
Saudi Arabia has reportedly agreed to provide foreign-backed militant groups in Syria with advanced weaponry.
Citing Western and Arab diplomats as well as foreign-backed Syrian opposition sources, the Wall Street Journal has said that the weapons include anti-aircraft shoulder-fired missiles.
“Saudi Arabia has offered to give the opposition for the first time Chinese man-portable air defense systems, or Manpads, and antitank guided missiles from Russia,” the journal reported.
A Western diplomat with knowledge of the weapons deliveries told the journal that “new stuff is arriving imminently.”
Syria has been gripped by deadly violence since 2011. Some sources say over 140,000 people have been killed and millions displaced due to the violence fueled by Western-backed militants.
According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies — especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey — are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.
