Doha. A former senior Qatari leader has admitted that his country knowingly armed terrorists in Syria and did so with the help and oversight of Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United States.
The former Prime Minister of Qatar Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber al-Thani told Qatari TV on October 25th that the U.S.-led “anti-terror” alliance began shipping weapons to jihadists from the very moment events “first started” in Syria in 2011.
Al-Thani likened the covert operation to hunting for sport, and said the alliance treated President Assad and his supporters like “prey.”
Al-Thani added that Qatar was placed in charge of the execution for this proxy war by Saudi Arabia’s now-deceased King and the U.S., and that his nation has “full documents” and records proving that the Syrian war was planned to effect regime change.
As Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Al-Thani oversaw the operations in Syria on behalf of Qatar until 2013.
A 2014 email published by WikiLeaks shows that Hillary Clinton, the U.S. Secretary of State during Al-Thani’s rule, knew Qatar was a state-sponsor of ISIS during that time period.
In June of this year, Al-Thani told PBS’ Charlie Rose that from the beginning the Syrian war was controlled from “two operation rooms” located in Jordan and Turkey, and that “in Syria, everybody did mistakes, including your country.”
This is in line with information contained in a leaked top secret NSA document which shows that a 2013 terrorist attack on civilian populated areas of Damascus used advanced surface-to-surface rockets which were directly supplied and commanded by Saudi Arabia with full prior awareness of U.S. intelligence.
