Paris Attack The Result Of France Aiding Rebels, Daesh Allies – Assad

  • Says Stop Aiding Terrorists

By Hugh Naylor,

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad suggested Saturday that French support for opposition forces in his country’s civil war led to the Islamic State-claimed attacks in Paris that killed at least 129 people.In comments published by Syria’s official news agency, SANA, the embattled leader called on Western states to stop aiding “terrorists,” a term used by Syria’s government for all insurgent groups. France backs Syrian rebel groups and has been a particularly vocal opponent of Assad during the nearly five-year conflict.
The remarks contrasted with expressions of support for France and condemnations of the attacks coming from much of the rest of the Middle East.

“Wrong [policies] adopted by Western states, particularly France, toward events in the region and its ignorance of the support of a number of its allies to terrorists are reasons behind the expansion of terrorism,” said Assad, who delivered the comments during a meeting with a visiting French delegation.
