Weapons for insurgents in Syria are being smuggled in ambulances, reveals the Turkish newspaper Yurt, quoting a terrorist who witnessed smuggling operations.
The revelation comes as analysts warn that an international push for renewed threats of military aggression against Syria is being planned to force the Syrian government to allow unmonitored cross-border humanitarian operations.
In a report Yurt published on Sunday, the newspaper quotes a terrorist, using the initials “M.T.”, as saying that training courses for insurgents have been held on Turkish islands.
M.T. added, that the training began long before the first violent episodes in Jisr al-Shoughour, in the Idleb province of Syria, at the beginning of the war in 2011.
M.T.’s statement corroborates an abundance of evidence in support of accusations that the war in Syria has been planned with the support of foreign actors, long before the eruption of the so-called “Arab Spring” in early 2011.
The terrorist also corroborated reports about extensive plundering and smuggling operations, including the smuggling of stolen materials from Syria to Turkey. The Syrian government and local Syrian governors have repeatedly complained to Turkey as well as to the United Nations that foreign-backed insurgents are stealing entire factories and are transporting them to Turkey.

M.T., who is a member of the so-called Turkmen Brigades, stated that weapons are being smuggled into Syria in various ways, sometimes in ambulances, adding that he himself had examined one ambulance which was loaded with U.S. made weapons, rockets and explosives.
While trafficking of weapons in ambulances may be insignificant in comparison to documented operations which include entire ship- and truckloads of weapons and their distribution to terrorist brigades under the supervision of Turkish military officers, the use of ambulances for trafficking weapons is significant in other respects.
In early October, shortly after the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 2118 (2013) on Syria’s chemical weapons, the Security Council unanimously adopted a Presidential Statement which for the first time introduced the Responsibility to Protect principle into the Syrian equation. The Presidential Statement explicitly calls on the Syrian government to allow cross-border “humanitarian operations”.
Following the adoption of the Presidential Statement, an article published on 6 October warned, that new calls for a military threat against Syria, to force Syria into accepting such cross border operations could be expected within the foreseeable future.
While the Syrian government does not oppose cross-border humanitarian operations, it does oppose that such operations should be allowed to take place outside of the control of Syrian authorities.
Calls for the establishment of “humanitarian corridors”, and calls for forcing the Syrian government to accept uncontrolled humanitarian cross-border operations have been reiterated by several of the participants of the Atlantic Council’s Energy Summit in Istanbul on 22 – 23 November. Statements to that effect were, among others, made at the council’s closing panel debate. (SEE VIDEO)

Several member’s of the council made statements to the effect that the Responsibility to Protect principle should be used to threaten Syria with military strikes unless it allows the uncontrolled flow of humanitarian goods and staff across its borders as well as the establishment of “humanitarian corridors”.
While the Atlantic Council is not officially representing any of the governments who are supporting the war on Syria, it is one of the most influential think tanks with close ties to the White House and the Pentagon.
Members of the George Soros funded council are, among others, the Saudi – Lebanese former Prime Minister of Lebanon, Saad Hariri, whose involvement in the trafficking of weapons to terrorist brigades in Syria has been documented on several occasions. Hariri has also been implicated in the trafficking of chemicals and chemical weapons to terrorists in Syria. (1 (2
The Syrian government has styled several letters to the United Nations Secretary General, to the Security Council and the council’s anti terrorism committees, demanding that Turkey cooperates fully in stopping the illegal flow of weapons across the border. So far, there has not been any tangible response or result. Although the humanitarian crisis in Syria and neighboring countries is acute and, although experts agree that there is an urgent need for addressing it, the establishment of humanitarian corridors, and threatening military action against Syria to force the Syrian government into surrendering sovereignty over its borders is likely to aggravate the crisis rather than resolving it.
