• Report- CIA is second in command leading Syria rebel-terrorists
Nov. 4, 2013
Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal has accused the Islamic Republic of Iran of military intervention in Syria.
Faisal said at a joint news conference with US Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday that Iran has deployed troops to Syria and that the Arab country is under occupation.
The Saudi foreign minister’s comments come as Saudi Arabia has been the main supplier of weapons and funds to foreign-backed militants fighting against the Syrian government.
According to a recent report by French daily Le Figaro, the weapons used by the militants in Syria are initially purchased by Saudi Arabia from black markets in Ukraine and Bulgaria. The weapons, which include Israeli missiles, are then transferred to a number of cells on the outskirts of the Syrian capital, Damascus.
These cells are directly linked to a command center in Jordan, which is headed by Saudi Arabia’s intelligence chief. However, in his absence, this command center is led by a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) agent, according to the newspaper.
Representatives from the UK, France, Italy, Qatar, Turkey and Lebanon’s former Prime Minister Saad Hariri are also present in this command room.
On October 30, Saudi Arabia’s intelligence chief, Bandar bin Sultan, said the United States had failed to take concrete steps to undermine Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and reinforce the armed groups fighting to remove him from power.
Riyadh earlier in October turned down a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council, in what Bandar said was “a message for the US.”

The Islamic Republic, on the other hand, from the beginning of the Syria crisis has emphasized the necessity of finding a political solution as the only way to end violence in the Arab country.
Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since March 2011. The United Nations says more than 100,000 people have lost their lives and millions displaced due to the violence. A very large number of the militants operating inside the country are foreign nationals.
