French troops in Algeria

Between 1954, when the Algerian uprising against French colonial rule broke out, and 1962, when Algeria became an independent republic, some two million French soldiers crossed the Mediterranean to fight against the FLN's (National Liberation Front) guerrillas in an operation that marked a generation. Most of these soldiers were conscripts. In Paris, the developing war in Algeria led to the fall of six prime ministers, the collapse of the IVth republic, the return of General de Gaulle to power at the head of the Vth republic -- a vehicle of his own creation -- and near civil war following an attempted right-wing coup in Algiers.

During the war, atrocities were committed on both sides, and after it, with the general amnesty declared at Evian as part of its negotiated settlement, many of these were officially forgotten. France turned to interior self-modernization, while Algeria began a process of nation-building under the tutelage of the victorious FLN.

More recently, however, there has been a move to disinter the past in the wake of recent, well-publicized revelations in France concerning the extent of human-rights violations, specifically the torture and murder of those suspected of being members or sympathizers of the FLN, by the French army in Algeria and by the authorities in France itself. In recent months both the French president, Jacques Chirac, and the prime minister, Lionel Jospin, have referred to these reports, mostly stressing the need to consider them in their historical context and talking of the need for "national healing" to take place. "Let history do its work," said Chirac, interviewed recently on the television channel TF1. Former generals have also appeared on television admitting that they used torture to interrogate suspects during the Algerian War.

With the official records of the period remaining largely closed, however, and with those committing them never having been held accountable either for their orders or for their acts, other voices have been a lot less diplomatic than have those of the political establishment.

French troops in Syria

In 1920, an independent Arab kingdom of Syria was established under king Faysal of the Hashemite family. His rule ended after few months, following the clash between Syrian forces and regular French forces at the battle of Maysalun. French troops occupied Syria later that year after the league of Nations put Syrian under the French mandate. With the fall of France in 1940, Syria came under the control of the Vichy Government until the British and Free French occupied the country in July 1941. Continuing pressure from Syrian nationalist groups forced the French to evacuate their troops in April 1946, leaving the country in the hands of a republican government that had been formed during the mandate.

Alexey Plotnikov, an expert.Security Committee.Russian Duma, .jpgRussian Security Official: Syrian Government Controls Situation, Opposition's Operations Prove They Are Mercenaries 

 

Sep 29, 2012

MOSCOW, (SANA) – Alexey Plotnikov, an expert at the Security Committee of the Russian Duma, considered on Saturday that the Syrian Government is in control of the situation while the operations perpetrated by the opposition's gangs against Syrian civilians prove to the local and international community that these gangs are mercenaries and are not seeking to defend the Syrian people.

In an interview with Russia Today channel, Plotnikov said the opposition are spending the money that they receive through fighting and carrying out what they are ordered to do.

He added that changing the current situation in Syria requires the opposition to seriously engage into dialogue and negotiations if they really care for the destiny of the Syrian people as using force will lead to no way.

The Russian official stressed Russia's continued support to Syria to prevent it from getting to where other Arab states have reached.

Lavrov Calls on International Community to Unite Efforts to End Violence in Syria and Launch Negotiations

Sep 29, 2012

NEW YORK, (SANA) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov held the countries, that reject the implementation of Geneva agreement on Syria, responsible for pushing Syria even deeper into internecine strife and continue militarizing the crisis as they only call the Syrian government to stop violence and encourage the opposition to continue the acts of violence.

Speaking at the 67th session of the UN General Assembly on Friday, Lavrov said "The international community should unify efforts to coerce all sides of the Syrian crisis to end violence immediately, launch dialogue and reach a middle-ground solution on the reforms that satisfy all spectrums of the Syrian people."

"Russia resolutely condemns all kinds of violence, from wherever source it comes from, and is convinced that there is still an opportunity to undertake collective actions," Lavrov added, asserting that extremist organizations including al-Qaeda have become more active in Syria and carried out terrorist acts against the inhabitants and the public infrastructure.

He underscored that practical steps to overcome the crisis need to begin through halting violence, releasing of prisoners and hostages and supplying of additional humanitarian aid, as this will create conditions to start an inter-Syrian dialogue.

He expressed Russia's support to the efforts of the UN envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi, asserting that his country will exert all efforts to make his mission a success.

Lavrov said that Russia supports the peoples' right to determine their own future and move to the most effective ways of state governance, stressing the importance that these changes take place away from violence and foreign interference.

Lavrov stressed the importance that the unfolding situation in the Middle East won't push the Palestinian cause to the peripheries, calling for a just and comprehensive settlement that leads to establishing a viable Palestinian state.

''States have to protect themselves from provocations and abusing religious feelings, but terrorist acts are unjustifiable, and so are attacks on diplomats and the UN staff,'' Lavrov added.

He added that slapping sanctions is, according to the UN Charter, the prerogative of the UN an such decisions are taken unanimously. H. Zain/ M. Ismael/Mazen

Who's responsible for terrorist acts in Syria ?

Obama.Ban+Ki+Moon+World+Leaders.jpg

1) Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for Syrian terrorists seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government.  Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the terrorists oust Assad.  C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey. The weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The United States is setting up joint military, intelligence and medical working teams with Israel, Turkey and Jordan.

2) British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Britain would step up its support for the armed groups in Syria, providing them with an additional £5 million (US$7.8 million). The money is used for bomb attacks in Syria.

3) An official source told a SANA reporter that the seized arms included Nato sniper rifles, machineguns, hunting rifles, explosive devices of various weights, devices for remote control detonation and an amount of batteries and electrical wires.

4) Belgian Senator Nele Lijnen said that she intends to launch a discussion at the Belgian Senate regarding the fact that the terrorists in Syria possess weapons made in Belgium. 

5) The Swiss Authorities announced that they are investigating into information published by Sonntags Zeitung newspaper about hand grenades used by armed terrorist groups in Syria.

6) The weapons and military equipment recently discovered and seized by the Syrian Army in Idlib province proves NATO's arms and logistic support for terrorists in Syria.

7) The seized weapons in Salqain district in Idlib included 7.26 guns along with other weapons as well as boxes of gunshots with the words "NATO BALL" carved on them.

8) The Lebanese army intelligence has seized a large quantity of wea Lutfallah II container pons hidden inside cars aboard an Italian ship at Tripoli port, north of Lebanon, Lebanese security sources told Al-Manar TV.

9) This comes just days after the Lebanese Army Marines confiscated Lutfallah II arms shipment off the Lebanese port of Batoun while it was carrying 300,000 pounds of weapons within three containers. Reports said the cargo ship, which was flying the flag of Sierra-Leone, had left Libya and was bound to Syria.

10) Lebanese terrorist Mohammad Hussein Fares confessed to participating in smuggling weapons, militants and journalists into Syria and committing terrorists acts against Syrians.

11) Fares said that they smuggled assault rifles, RPG rounds, sniper rifles, LAW missiles, machineguns and cases of ammo, delivering them to Amoun, with al-Jarban coming later to distribute them among terrorists.

12) US, Qatar and Saudi Arabia are arming AL-QAEDA Terrorists to commit Terrorism in Syria.

13) Over 30,000 various weapons have been channelled to Syria since unrest flared up there in April last year, Amin Khteit says. The overall amount of explosives makes up 300 tons. The deliveries were made by Qatar and Saudi Arabia. They depend on the United States, which is making every effort to overpower Syria.

14) The authorities seized weapons smuggled from Turkey in Tal Abyad area on the Syrian-Turkish borders in Raqqa countryside.

15) A Turkish parliamentarian has stressed that Turkish ambulances are transporting weapons to terrorist groups in Syria, expressing their opposition to Ankara's policies on the Syrian case.

Syrian.meeting.UN.jpgAl-Moallem Resumes Meetings in New York on Saturday

 

 

Sep 29, 2012
 

NEW YORK, (SANA) –Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign and Expatriates Minister Walid al-Moallem resumed official meetings at the UN headquarter in New York on Saturday.

The meetings took place on the sidelines of the 67th session of the United Nations General Assembly.

Minister al-Moallem met with Togo Minister of Foreign Affairs Elliot Ohin, as Togo is currently a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council.

Al-Moallem gave a review of the latest developments in Syria and the aggressive acts supported by some countries which are conspiring on the Syrian people.

Togo Minister of Foreign Affairs promised Minister al-Moallem to convey the reality of the events to the leadership of his country, stressing the need to continue the bilateral consultations.

The Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate that killed four Americans was the spark that ignited growing frustration with the armed groups that have proliferated since the ouster of Moammar Gadhafi. Continuing to chant anti-Ansar slogans, the crowd, swelling into the thousands, moved on to try to storm a separate compound where the powerful pro-government Rafallah al-Sahati militia was entrusted with guarding a big weapons store, and opened fire on the assailants. Looters carried weapons out of the compound as men chanted: "Say to Ansar al-Shariah: 'Benghazi will be your inferno!'"

A source at the movement, who preferred not to be named, told the UPI that four of the salafist jihadist movement in al-Zarqa city, northeastern Jordan, already headed to Syria.

The source noted that the salafists, who are between 25 and 30, arrived on Thursday evening in Daraa in northern Syria.

Mohammad al-Shalabi, nicknamed Abi Sayyaf, who is a leader at the salafist jihadist movement in Jordan, announced last Sunday that he sent four of his followers to Syria for 'Jihad'.

He noted that some of the salafists go to Syria regularly, while others go personally.

Map of Belgium.jpg

Some weeks ago the Belgian Senator Nele Lijnen said that she intends to launch a discussion at the Belgian Senate regarding the fact that the terrorists in Syria possess weapons made in Belgium.  

But Belgium is not only responsible for sending weapons for terrorist bomb attacks in Syria.

The Belgian State Security knows that Belgian jihadists are going to Syria for organizing these bomb attacks.

On August 3th, the Belgian State Security "could not confirm" that Belgian jihadists are fighting in Syria while the newspapers 'Het Belang van Limburg' and 'Gazet van Antwerpen' argued the opposite: "The State Security confirmed the presence of Belgian jihadists in Syria".

The Flemish newspapers relied on a report by Reuters, dated July 31, citing statements from "several rebel commanders in the north-west Syria," according to which "Muslims in Great Britain, Belgium and the United States had joined the Free Syrian Army (SLA)". On July 13th, Reuters pointed out a flood "of thousands of assault rifles Belgian FN FAL was in the hands of the rebels".

In its annual reports, the Belgian State Security explains how and why she follows people attracted by fighting abroad: there was attention for Iraq, then, from 2010, to the movement towards Pakistan-Afghanistan border area; Finally, most recently, to new locations: "If the Afghan-Pakistan area, more than Iraq, was still popular in 2010 with the majority of volunteers for jihad", the Belgian State Security wrote in his latest report, "some of them began to plot their way to Yemen, Somalia and the Caucasus". And Syria now? Obviously. 'Where they are beaten, those who return and who actually participated in the fighting have gained knowledge on how to handle weapons, strategy and tactics of war,' noted the Belgian State Security...

GENEVA, (SANA) - Russia, China and Cuba voted on Friday against a United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) decision to extend the mandate of the , International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, while India, Uganda and Philippines abstained.

Syria's Representative at UNHRC, Faisal al-Hamwi described the decision as shameful, politicized and selective, and ''highly tolerant with al-Qaeda terrorists.''

In his statement on September 17 before the UNHRC in Geneva, al-Hamwi said that the International Commission of Inquiry report lacks accuracy and objectivity and disregards facts, especially the role of international and regional parties in stoking the crisis in Syria through media instigation, funding and training terrorists and al-Qaeda members to send them to Syria.

Syrian crisis ? Spain Protesters Storm Parliament...

Spain Protesters Storm Parliament As They Rage Against Austerity, Many Beaten By Police

Sept. 25th, 2012 

MADRID — Spain's government was hit hard by the country's financial crisis on multiple fronts Tuesday as protestors enraged with austerity cutbacks and tax hikes clashed with police near Parliament, a separatist-minded region set elections seen as an independence referendum and the nation's high borrowing costs rose again.

More than 1,000 riot police blocked off access to the Parliament building in the heart of Madrid, forcing most protesters to crowd nearby avenues and shutting down traffic at the height of the evening rush hour.

Police used batons to push back some protesters at the front of the march attended by an estimated 6,000 people as tempers flared, and some demonstrators broke down barricades and threw rocks and bottles toward authorities.

Television images showed officers beating protesters in response, and an Associated Press television producer saw five people dragged away by police and two protesters bloodied. Spanish state TV said at least 28 were injured, including two officers, and that 22 people were detained. Independent Spanish media reported higher numbers that could not immediately be confirmed.

The demonstration, organized with an "Occupy Congress" slogan, drew protesters from all walks of life weary of nine straight months of painful economic austerity measures imposed by Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and his solid majority of lawmakers. Smaller demonstrations Tuesday attracted hundreds of protesters in Barcelona and Seville.

Angry Madrid marchers who got as close as they could to Parliament, 250 meters (yards) away, yelled "Get out!, Get out! They don't represent us! Fire them!"

Liberated Prisoner al-Makt Rejects to Give interview to the Jazeera TV

 

Sep 25, 2012
 

Quneitra, (SANA)-The Syrian liberated prisoner Sidqi al-Makt rejected to give an interview to the Qatari al-Jazeera English-spoken TV which went on Monday to the occupied Majdal Shams town to make the interview with al-Makt and prepare a special report on the occupied Syrian Golan.

"I rejected to interview al-Jazeera staff which is considered as a partner in the war against the Syrian people… it is the field arm of sedition in our homeland," al-Makt said in a statement to SANA Tuesday.

He added that al-Jazeera TV is carrying out the agendas of extremists to execute a conspiracy along with the US against the Arab nation interests and the way of resistance.

Al-Makt called on journalists who work in the Arab-spoken channels of media instigation, including al-Arabiya and al-Jazeera to resign, adding that he dismissed several times a request by the Arab-spoken al-Jazeera to make a similar interview as it represents nothing but "the sheikhdoms of petroleum".

The liberated prisoner al-Makt, the oldest liberated prisoner, spent 27 years in the Israeli occupation prisons under the pretext of resisting the occupation. He was released on August 22nd, 2012.

China Stresses Efforts to Reach Just, Peaceful Solution to Crisis in Syria 

 

Sep 27, 2012

NEW YORK, (SANA) - China urged on Wednesday the international community to continue exerting efforts for finding a solution to the crisis in Syria and to remain on the right track in this regard, warning against the repercussions of the crisis on the whole region.

The Chinese news agency XINHUA quoted Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi as saying in his speech at the Security Council's meeting on the situation in the Middle East that China as a permanent member of the Council faithfully fulfilled its obligations and acted as a positive force in the efforts to resolve the crisis in Syria in a just, peaceful and appropriate way.

He called for supporting the UN envoy to Syria Lakhaar Brahimi's efforts to play a neutral role and seriously implementing the Council's relevant resolutions, the six-point plan of former UN envoy Kofi Annan and Geneva agreement.

The Chinese Foreign Minister pointed out that the international community should stay on the right track through finding a political solution to the crisis.

"We urge all the Syrian sides to implement the Security Council's resolutions, Annan's plan and Geneva agreement and to stop violence, protect the civilians and prepare the circumstances for a Syrian-led political transition," Yang said.

He expressed his country's concern over not finding a solution to the current crisis in Syria so far, asserting that the concerns are not only over the future and destiny of Syria and its people but over realizing peace and stability in the entire Middle East.

Czech Foreign Minister: Western Countries Should Not Arm Terrorist Groups in Syria

 

Sep 27, 2012

PRAGUE, (SANA) – Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg stressed that the armed terrorist groups receive large amounts of money and supply from countries such as Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

The Czech News Agency quoted Schwarzenberg in an exclusive interview with The Cable as saying that his country doesn’t think that the western countries should arm these groups.

He said that things seemed to be more difficult in Syria because ”on the opposition side, there are many different groups, with different aims, financed by different countries."

Moscow: 'Western powers create chaos in Syria'

Sep 27, 2012
 

MOSCOW, SANA - Russian President Vladimir Putin said the West is now spreading chaos in Syria as it did in a lot of countries. 

" Our Western partners are creating chaos and can't stop. Having wreaked havoc in many areas, they continue the same policy in other countries, including Syria," Putin added in a meeting with residents of the Russian province of Ryazan (200 km south-east of Moscow) on Thursday.

About his position on the events in the Middle East, including Syria the Russian President said:" "Our position is to encourage change for the better in all countries. We are not imposing, especially by force, what we believe in, but we want to stimulate the internal development," said Putin.

Belgium is sending terrorists and weapons to Syria

terrorist.weapons1.jpg

Some weeks ago the Belgian Senator Nele Lijnen said that she intends to launch a discussion at the Belgian Senate regarding the fact that the terrorists in Syria possess weapons made in Belgium.  

But Belgium is not only responsible for sending weapons for terrorist bomb attacks in Syria.

The Belgian State Security knows that Belgian jihadists are going to Syria for organizing these bomb attacks.

The U.S. and its allies work all on the same way: They send money and weapons to the jihadists coming from their country to carry out bomb attacks in Syria.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon who has been posted twice to the Republic of Korea embassy in Washington, D.C. and served as Director-General for American Affairs in 1990–1992, conceals these matters and talks about a 'civil war' all the time.

----------------------------

August 3th, 2012

The Belgian State Security "has not confirmed" the rumor that Belgian jihadists are fighting in Syria. Thursday, the newspapers 'Het Belang van Limburg' and 'Gazet van Antwerpen' argued the opposite: "The State Security confirmed the presence of" Belgium".

It is uncommon, that the Belgian State Security issued a statement Thursday to correct statements that were attributed to him: "The State Security (...) confirms that Syria is a destination for international Islamist fighters. But the State Security has not been confirmed (...) that there are Belgians among them. "    In short, if the Security denies to have confirmed does not mean - this is important - it can deny the information.

Originally Flemish newspapers relied on a report by Reuters, dated July 31, citing statements from "several rebel commanders in the north-west Syria," according to which "Muslims in Great Britain, Belgium and the United States had joined the Free Syrian Army (SLA)". On July 13th, Reuters pointed out a flood "of thousands of assault rifles Belgian FN FAL was in the hands of the rebels".

In its annual reports, the Belgian State Security explains how and why she follows people attracted by fighting abroad: there was attention for Iraq, then, from 2010, to the movement towards Pakistan-Afghanistan border area; Finally, most recently, to new locations: "If the Afghan-Pakistan area, more than Iraq, was still popular in 2010 with the majority of volunteers for jihad", the Belgian State Security wrote in his latest report, "some of them began to plot their way to Yemen, Somalia and the Caucasus". And Syria now? "Obviously. Where they are beaten, those who return and who actually participated in the fighting have gained knowledge on how to handle weapons, strategy and tactics of war," noted the Belgian State Security yesterday. "This is the central reason for the Belgian concern".

The weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The United States is setting up joint military, intelligence and medical working teams with Israel, Turkey and Jordan.

Iranian Foreign Ministry, SCP Condemn Terrorist Bombings in Damascus

Sep 26, 2012

TEHRAN/DAMASCUS, (SANA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast condemned the two terrorist bombings which took place in Damascus on Wednesday and resulted in the martyrdom and injuring of a number of citizens.

In a statement, Mehmanparast said that the responsibility for such terrorist actions falls on the countries and sides that seek to foil internal and regional efforts to resolve the crisis in Syria through political methods and dialogue without foreign interference.

He affirmed that aggravating the security situation, escalating terrorist and military activities and foreign intervention do not help resolve the crisis in Syria at all.

While he denounced these bombings which led to the martyrdom of a reporter from Press TV and injured the director of the office of Al-Alam TV channel, Mehmanparast said that mass media is fulfilling its duties under difficult and dangerous circumstances to cover events and publish facts to raise the awareness of public opinion, stressing that the use of force cannot deter journalists from clarifying the reality of the situation in Syria to the public.

Syrian Communist Party: Damascus Terrorist Bombings Aim to Undermine Syria's Anti-Imperialist Course and the Syrians' Steadfastness

In a statement, the Syrian Communist Party (SCP) affirmed that the two terrorist bombings that targeted the General Staff building aim to undermine Syria's anti-imperialist and anti-Zionist course and the Syrians' honorable steadfastness which foiled all conspiracies.

The SCP said that intelligence agencies of certain regressive Arab sides, particularly Saudi Arabia and Qatar, are funding the vandalism and terrorism acts committed by armed groups in Syria, while Turkey offers full sponsorship to these groups, all while waging a rabid propaganda campaign, employing a criminal economic siege, and leveling diplomatic pressure.

The SCP pointed out that the rise in vandalism and terrorist acts, from massacres to assassinations to bombings, will not defeat the Syrians and the valiant Syrian Arab Army, and that Syria will remain invincible to all conspiracies and faithful to its resistant history.

The statement also lauded the stances of the countries and peoples who support Syria in the face of this conspiracy, saluting the sacrifices of the Syrian Arab Army and the homeland's martyrs.

Latest News Syria: Terrorists acts with western aid and weapons...

terrorist.acts.Syria1.jpgMilitary Source: Four Guards Martyred, 14 Military Members and Civilians Injured in General Staff Building Bombings

Sep 26, 2012

DAMASCUS, (SANA) The armed terrorist gangs connected with abroad have carried out two terrorist bombings on Wednesday targeting the General Staff building, an official military source said.

It pointed out that the initial investigations indicated that the two bombings in the surrounding of and inside the General Staff building are caused by two booby-trapped cars.

The source said the terrorist attack resulted in the martyrdom of four guards of wounds they sustained in the explosions and the injury of 14 civilians and military members, in addition to causing material damages to the building and a fire in some of its parts.

The source said that this terrorist act coincided with shooting random fire by some terrorists in the vicinity of the building and the neighboring streets to spread panic among the civilians, asserting that the authorities confronted the terrorists and pursued them in the surrounding area.

"Seeing this criminal act as an evidence of the bankruptcy of those who lead the war against Syria, the General Command of the Army and the Armed Forces confirms that all the military commanders and commanding officers are safe and none has been wounded or hurt and they are continuing their daily duties," the source underlined.

"This heinous crime will enhance the determination of our armed forces in confronting terrorism and crushing all those who attempt to tamper with the security of the homeland and the citizens," the source said.

Al-Zoubi: Military Staff, Radio and TV Staff Are Safe

Earlier, Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi affirmed that all members of the military command, the General Staff and the Defense Ministry are safe, dismissing the news posted on  internet and aired by some media channels as false and coming in the framework of trying to influence the morale of the Syrian people and armed forces.

In a phone call with the Syrian TV , Minister al-Zoubi also stressed that all the staff of the General Establishment of Radio and Television, located in the surrounding area of the explosions, are safe.

The Minister pointed out that the terrorist act took place in an important site but the terrorists as usual failed to achieve their goals, asserting that the aggressive project targeting Syria is integral and has its tools, means and persons, "therefore we should expect such kind of barbarian acts as we are facing a war."

"Syria is facing a battle but not only in the political sense .. we are facing a brutal aggression. Therefore, the Syrian people and the armed forces have no choice except defending their homeland," al-Zoubi said.

"The aggression will be defeated.. we are ready to face it in its foreign sense and internal tools … we will remain committed to our political stances, and dialogue should be a Syrian-Syrian one,"  he underscored.

 "There won't be a dialogue with Syria's enemies abroad nor with those who conspire against Syria with foreign sides. Nor there will be international conferences with those who are part of the conspiracy against Syria," the Minister said.

He called on all those who want the interest of the homeland "to come to the dialogue table as the agenda of discussion is open and the space is a Syrian one."

In the same context, the Information Ministry dismissed "as groundless" the news reported by some instigative websites and satellite channels on the injury of the Defense Minister or any of the Military Commanders.

The Ministry also stressed that neither the Cabinet nor any governmental institution have been exposed to any terrorist acts, asserting that such news reflect these media outlets' bankruptcy and come in the framework of the miserable psychological war waged against the Syrian people.

Syria: Complaints against Turkish government officials

Turkish MP Files Complaint against AKP Government Officials over Policy towards Syria

Sep 25, 2012

ANKARA, (SANA)- Criticism of the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government's policy towards Syria from inside Turkey reached high levels with MPs filing complaints against the government officials over its violation of the Turkish constitution and laws in its dealing with Syria.

MP Hurşit Güneş from the Republican People's Party (CHP) filed to the Public Prosecution a complaint against the Turkish Prime Minister, Foreign Minister, Defense Minister and Interior Minister, in addition to the Governor of Iskenderun city.

Cumhuriyet newspaper quoted Güneş as saying in a press conference at the CHP HQ that the Turkish government is training gunmen in the Turkish territories, transferring weapons into Syria and providing all forms of aid and support to armed members fighting in Syria.

Güneş presented during the conference photos of Syrian opposition members carrying weapons in Istanbul and pictures of camps where gunmen are being trained in Turkey.

The MP stressed that the AKP government breached Article 92 of the Turkish constitution by deploying foreign military forces on Turkish territory without the Turkish Parliament's approval, saying that this deployment and the interference in the Syrian internal affairs in a way that endangers Turkey's security is a violation of the laws.

Turkish Admiral: Turkish Government Plays the Agent in the War against Syria

For his part, former commander of Turkish Naval Academy, Admiral Turker Erturk, stressed that the US and Israel are behind the events taking place in Syria, considering that the AKP government is playing the agent and tool in the immoral war launched against Syria.

In an article published by the Turkish Aydinlik newspaper, Adm. Erturk said the Turkish territories have turned into a terrorism base with the aim to create the conditions to pave the way for military intervention in Syria and undermine the coexistence through stirring sedition among the Syrian people.

He wondered at Turkey's help to the imperialists despite the obvious fact that fragmenting Syria would lead to the fragmenting of Turkey and inflaming the whole region.

Adm. Erturk said all the illegal practices and measures taken by the Turkish government are in the service of the "Great Middle East" project of the US and Israel.

Brief Political History of Syria

Damascus Came under Muslim rule in A.D.636. and it became the capital of Omayyad Empire from A.D. 661 to A.D. 750, when the Abbasid caliphate was established at Baghdad, Iraq. Later, around 1260 it became a provincial capital of Mameluke Empire. It was largely destroyed in 1400 by Tamerlane, the Mongol conqueror, who removed many of its craftsmen to Samarkand. Rebuilt, it continued to serve as a capital until 1516. In 1517, it fell under Ottoman rule. They remained for the next 400 years, except for a brief occupation by Ibrahim Pasha of Egypt from 1832 to 1840. In 1920, an independent Arab kingdom of Syria was established under king Faysal of the Hashemite family. His rule ended after few months, following the clash between Syrian forces and regular French forces at the battle of Maysalun. French troops occupied Syria later that year after the league of Nations put Syrian under the French mandate. With the fall of France in 1940, Syria came under the control of the Vichy Government until the British and Free French occupied the country in July 1941. Continuing pressure from Syrian nationalist groups forced the French to evacuate their troops in April 1946, leaving the country in the hands of a republican government that had been formed during the mandate.

Independence to 1970

Although rapid economic development followed the declaration of independence of April 17, 1946, Syrian politics from independence through the late 1960s was marked by upheaval. A series of military coups, begun in 1949, undermined civilian rule and led to army colonel Adib Shishakli's seizure of power in 1951. President Shishakli overthrown power in a 1954 coup and deported to Brazil. continued political maneuvering supported by competing factions in the military eventually brought Arab nationalist and socialist elements to power. 
Syria's political instability during the years after the 1954 coup, the parallelism of Syrian and Egyptian policies, and the appeal of Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser's leadership in the wake of the 1956 Suez crisis created support in Syria for union with Egypt. On February 1, 1958, the two countries merged to create the United Arab Republic, and all Syrian political parties ceased overt activities.
The union was not a success, however. Following a military coup on September 28, 1961, Syria seceded, re-establishing itself as the Syrian Arab Republic. Instability characterized the next 18 months. Later on March 8, 1963, Al Ba'ath Party took over, which had been active in Syria and other Arab countries since the late 1940s.

Who's responsible for terrorist attacks and the suffering of the Syrian people ?

Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for Syrian terrorists seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government.  Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the terrorists oust Assad.  C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey. The weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The United States is setting up joint military, intelligence and medical working teams with Israel, Turkey and Jordan.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Britain would step up its support for the armed groups in Syria, providing them with an additional £5 million (US$7.8 million). The money is used for bomb attacks in Syria.
