In relation to the tragic events in Barcelona and Manchester, it is important that Western public opinion be informed regarding the unspoken relationship between Western governments and ISIS.
In Barcelona as well as Manchester, the ISIS (allegedly), according to media reports, claimed responsibility for the terror attacks. What the media fails to mention is that the ISIS in Syria has received military aid from the Pentagon. The Islamic State (ISIS) is supported by Saudi Arabia which is a faithful ally of US-NATO.
The US and its allies have relied on the illicit trade in light weaponry produced in Eastern Europe, the Balkans, China, etc. for delivery to rebel groups inside Syria, including ISIS-Daesh and Al Nusra. In turn, operating out of the occupied Golan Heights, Israel’s IDF has provided weapons, ammunition, logistical support to Al Qaeda rebels operating in Southern Syria.
In a September 2016 interview, with the Koelner Stadt-Anzeiger, Jabhat al-Nusra unit commander Abu Al Ezz confirms that the US is sending weapons to Al Nusrah through “third countries”.
“Yes, the US supports the opposition [in Syria], but not directly. They support the countries that support us. But we are not yet satisfied with this support,”
The above statement pertains to weapons deliveries by America’s allies including Saudi Arabia, Israel, Qatar and Turkey.
“When Jabhat Al-Nusra was “besieged, we had officers from Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Israel and America here… Experts in the use of satellites, rockets, reconnaissance and thermal security cameras.” ( RT, March 17, 2017)
The article below focusses on the supply routes and illicit trade in small arms used by the Pentagon to deliver weapons to the terrorists. And these are the same terrorists who are allegedly behind the bombings in European cities including Manchester, Brussels, Paris and Nice.
These weapons produced in third countries are purchased by the Pentagon. They are then channelled to Al Qaeda and ISIS-Daesh terrorists fighting government forces in Iraq and Syria.
