Qatar builds Sunni intervention force of Libyan, Iraqi terrorists against Assad

DebkaFile

December 27, 2011
The Qatar oil emirate, encouraged by its successful participation in
the campaign to overthrow Libya’s Muammar Qaddafi, has established a
Sunni Arab intervention force to expedite the drive for Syrian President
Bashar Assad’s ouster, DEBKAfile’s military sources report. The new
highly mobile force boosts the anti-Assad Free Syrian Army, whose
numbers have jumped to 20,000 fighters, armed and funded by Qatar and
now forming into military battalions and brigades at their bases in
Turkey.



When they saw the Syrian massacre continuing unabated this month, the
Qatari and Saudi rulers approved a crash program for the Qatari chief
of staff Maj.-Gen Hamas Ali al-Attiya to weld this mobile intervention
Sunni Muslim force out of al Qaeda linked-operatives for rapid
deployment on the Turkish-Syrian border.
A force of 2,500 has been recruited up until now, our sources report.
The hard core is made up of 1,000 members of the Islamic Fighting Group
in Libya-IFGL, which fought Qaddafi, and 1,000 operatives of the Ansar
al-Sunna, the Iraqi Islamists which carried out 15 coordinated bomb
attacks in Baghdad last Thursday killing 72 people and injuring 200.
Qatar has just had them airlifted from Libya and Iraq to the southern
Turkish town of Antakya (Antioch) in the border province of Hatay.
It is in this town of quarter-of-a- million inhabitants that the new
Sunni force has located its command center and separate camps for the
two main contingents to undergo intensive training for combat missions
in the embattled Syrian towns and provinces of Idlib, Homs, Jabal
al-Zawiya, scenes of the fiercest clashes between Syrian troops and
rebels.

      The plan is let/make radical muslims take over then destroy them and colonize the land er I mean oil. And if they don't have oil its to get someone else's oil.

  • In accordance with the long term plans of Amerikkka's far-right elites, the entire middle east is going up in flames.
    But, contrary to what they, (and their local henchmen) expect, the final victors will be the peoples of this region, and not the criminal empire or its psychopathic local allies.

    The day will come, when the honorable Monarchs of Qatar, Kwait, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, the Emirates, along with their "owners" in the US and UK, and their Salafist ground forces, will finally g More..

  • This is correct in all except one small, import point. Qatar's participation didn't start AFTER the 'Syrian massacre'. Rather, it was behind the whole uprising in the first place. These fuckers have been involved all along. This whole crap about freedom and democracy is a lie. A ruse to garner western sympathy and, hopefully intervention as was the case in Libya.

    Fuck these islamist pigs. Fuck them and their perverted ideology. As brutal as Assad is, it's the only way to deal with these fuckers More..

  • qatar's actions makes sense, why go through all the trouble of creating a new army from scratch when you can simply pay fellas who have been fighting in iraq for the past 10 years to go to syria and fight assad's forces instead.

    syrian people get their little revolution and the iraqi gov gets a bit of breathing space while the ansar insurgents throw themselves against assad's guns.

  • Not really a great surprise since they've also been more active than the other gulf countries in Libya - but as Pakistan would know quite well, using Salafi extremists as a proxy fighting force has a way of creating a bit of blowback down the road.

  • Ghadaffi was right, the entire Middle East is fighting amongst themselves. He mentioned this in one of his last speeches.

  • Also if anyone knows where we can buy AK's pm me a link or something. I know there are a lot of high quality small arms over in the US. We hear about them ending up in Mexico, so let me know if we can get some over here in Lebanon to send to our brothers to defend themselves.
