Saudi Arabia provided hundreds of anti-tank missiles to mercenaries in Syria

+

An array of anti-tank missiles were fired against the Syrian Arab army over the past two weeks by Harakat Hazm, an Islamist group created by NATO in January 2014. Apparently, hundreds of BGM-71 TOW have been delivered via Turkey to these mercenaries, as part of the secret war orchestrated by Washington.

While experts at first assumed that such materials had been provided by Qatar, today it would seem that Saudi Arabia did the honors on behalf of the United States.

In February 2012, Takfirists of the Islamic Emirate of Baba Amr already had in their possession Franco-German made Milan missiles and were being trained by French officers [1].
