Israel’s airstrike on Syria was timed to precede an Al-Qaeda-led rebel offensive against President Bashar Al-Assad’s forces according to Egyptian and Jordanian intelligence sources, underscoring once again how jihadists are doing the dirty work of the very powers they claim to oppose.
“Israel’s air strike in Syria today was coordinated with Turkey, which in turn coordinated rebel attacks throughout Syria timed to coincide with the Israeli strike,” sources told WABC host and New York Times bestselling author Aaron Klein.
Although the Syrian rebels were not given advance knowledge of the Israeli attack, they were specifically told when to launch new offensives in order to take advantage of the airstrike, which according to reports killed at least 100 Syrian Army troops.
“Almost the moment the Israel Air Force departed was the moment the rebel advance began,” the Egyptian intelligence source told Klein.
In the weeks preceding the airstrike, the Syrian Army had scored notable victories against FSA rebels, taking back central areas of Homs just days before the attack. But the Israeli offensive greased the skids for militants to use, “access roads to advance toward Damascus,” where they launched, “heavy clashes with Syrian military forces throughout the country,” including in “northeast Rankous in Damascus; Daraya city in the Damascus countryside; and also in the villages of Homs, al-Alqamieh, Tunaibeh and Menneg in the Aleppo countryside.”
As we highlighted yesterday, Israel and the United States routinely rely on Al-Qaeda to destabilize their enemies in the region.
Not only has Israel supported Al-Qaeda-led rebels in Syria, even setting up field hospitals for injured fighters, but back in 2002 Israel was caught actually creating an Al-Qaeda group in order to justify attacks on Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
The United States and Israel have also armed and funded Al-Qaeda-affiliated groups in Iran to carry out bombings and assassinations for years.
NATO powers also openly armed and funded the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Libyan Islamic FIghting Group to topple Colonel Gaddafi in 2011.
It was also recently revealed that the State Department hired Al-Qaeda-linked militants to “defend” the diplomatic mission in Benghazi that was later attacked.
Given this recent history, our characterization of Barack Obama as “the global head of Al-Qaeda” is looking more and more accurate.
It has also emerged that the same terrorists backed by the US and Israel were also most likely responsible for a recent chemical weapons attack, the so-called “red line” cited by the Obama administration that would justify military intervention (but only if it can be blamed on Assad’s forces).
“U.N. human rights investigators have gathered testimony from casualties of Syria’s civil war and medical staff indicating that rebel forces have used the nerve agent sarin, one of the lead investigators said on Sunday,” reports Reuters.
“Our investigators have been in neighboring countries interviewing victims, doctors and field hospitals and, according to their report of last week which I have seen, there are strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof of the use of sarin gas, from the way the victims were treated,” Del Ponte said in an interview with Swiss-Italian television.
Infowars has documented several examples where US-backed rebels have been caught on tape testing chemical weapons or discussing their delivery, but such reports have been ignored by the corporate media, who instead instantly seize on any suggestion of Assad’s forces doing the same with zero evidence and little explanation as to why the Syrian Army would launch limited chemical weapons attacks when it would do nothing to advance them militarily and would only welcome global condemnation and increase the chances of outside military intervention.
The coordination of Al-Qaeda attacks against Syrian Army forces immediately after the Israeli airstrike once again exemplifies how the conflict in Syria is not a grass roots uprising, as the NATO-aligned media has framed it, but a hegemonic assault by the US and Israel, who are once again working with Al-Qaeda terrorists to dismantle a sovereign nation.
