The Mystery Of The Toyota Army Solved

By Tony Cartalucci

The US Treasury has recently opened an inquiry about the so-called “Islamic State’s” (ISIS/ISIL) use of large numbers of brand-new Toyota trucks. The issue has arisen in the wake of Russia’s air operations over Syria and growing global suspicion that the US itself has played a key role in arming, funding, and intentionally perpetuating the terrorist army across Syria and Iraq.

ABC News in their article, “US Officials Ask How ISIS Got So Many Toyota Trucks,” reports:

U.S. counter-terror officials have asked Toyota, the world’s second largest auto maker, to help them determine how ISIS has managed to acquire the large number of Toyota pick-up trucks and SUVs seen prominently in the terror group’s propaganda videos in Iraq, Syria and Libya, ABC News has learned.

Toyota says it does not know how ISIS obtained the vehicles and is “supporting” the inquiry led by the Terror Financing unit of the Treasury Department — part of a broad U.S. effort to prevent Western-made goods from ending up in the hands of the terror group.

“This is a question we’ve been asking our neighbors,” Faily said. “How could these brand new trucks… these four wheel drives, hundreds of them — where are they coming from?”

Not surprisingly, it appears the US Treasury is asking the wrong party. Instead of Toyota, the US Treasury’s inquiry should have started next door at the US State Department.

Just last year it was reported that the US State Department had been sending in fleets of specifically Toyota-brand trucks into Syria to whom they claimed was the “Free Syrian Army.”

US foundation-funded Public Radio International (PRI) reported in a 2014 article titled, “This one Toyota pickup truck is at the top of the shopping list for the Free Syrian Army — and the Taliban,” that:

Recently, when the US State Department resumed sending non-lethal aid to Syrian rebels, the delivery list included 43 Toyota trucks.

Hiluxes were on the Free Syrian Army’s wish list. Oubai Shahbander, a Washington-based advisor to the Syrian National Coalition, is a fan of the truck.

“Specific equipment like the Toyota Hiluxes are what we refer to as force enablers for the moderate opposition forces on the ground,” he adds. Shahbander says the US-supplied pickups will be delivering troops and supplies into battle. Some of the fleet will even become battlefield weapons.

The British government has also admittedly supplied a number of vehicles to terrorists fighting inside of Syria. The British Independent’s 2013 article titled, “Revealed: What the West has given Syria’s rebels,” reported that:

So far the UK has sent around £8m of “non-lethal” aid, according to official papers seen by The Independent, comprising five 4×4 vehicles with ballistic protection; 20 sets of body armour; four trucks (three 25 tonne, one 20 tonne); six 4×4 SUVs; five non-armoured pick-ups; one recovery vehicle; four fork-lifts; three advanced “resilience kits” for region hubs, designed to rescue people in emergencies; 130 solar powered batteries; around 400 radios; water purification and rubbish collection kits; laptops; VSATs (small satellite systems for data communications) and printers.

It’s fair to say that whatever pipeline the US State Department and the British government used to supply terrorists in Syria with these trucks was likely used to send additional vehicles before and after these reports were made public.

The mystery of how hundreds of identical, brand-new ISIS-owned Toyota trucks have made it into Syria is solved. Not only has the US and British government admitted in the past to supplying them, their military forces and intelligence agencies ply the borders of Turkey, Jordan, and even Iraq where these fleets of trucks must have surely passed on their way to Syria – even if other regional actors supplied them. While previous admissions to supplying the vehicles implicates the West directly, that nothing resembling interdiction operations have been set up along any of these borders implicates the West as complicit with other parties also supplying vehicles to terrorists inside of Syria.

URGENT: Hezbollah Commander Killed in Syria’s Idlib

A ranking Hezbollah commander was killed during the clashes in Northwestern Syria on Saturday.

Senior Hezbollah Commander Hassan Hossein al-Haj, also known as Abu Mohammad al-Eqleem, has reportedly been killed during the heavy fighting in Idlib countryside today.

Reports said the commander was accompanying the Syrian army troops in an operation to win back the town of Mansoureh in Sahl Al-Qab region near Hama province.

Idlib is the scene of heavy fighting between the Syrian and Hezbollah troops who are backed up by the Russian air force and the terrorists who have been occupying part of the province for the some long time now.

Earlier today, the Russian bombers carried out precise attacks on militants’ positions and destroyed the Takfiri terrorists’ operations room in Idlib.

The Russian fighter jets hit a center of the terrorists in Khan Sheikhoun region in the Southern parts of Idlib four times and destroyed a five-story building that was the militants’ main base and arms depot as well.

The Russian Air Force also pounded the command center of militant groups in Idlib province today. Several militias, including senior commanders, were killed and wounded during the Russian warplanes’ air raid.

The Syrian fighter jets also bombed concentration centers and hideouts of the foreign-backed Takfiri militants in Idlib countryside on Saturday, inflicting heavy losses on them.

The airstrikes hit terrorists’ positions in Khan Sheikhoun city, Tal Merei and in the towns of al-Hbeit and al-Tamanaa.

Syria in Last 24 Hours: Russian Warplanes Destroy US-Trained Militants’ Base in Idlib

The Russian warplanes struck a military base of a US-trained militant group in Northwest Syria over the past few hours.

The Russian fighter jets destroyed the military base of Division 13 militant group in Idlib province.

Division 13′s Facebook page confirmed the strikes, and said the site has been totally taken down and many of its fighters were killed in the attack.

Division 13 is one of the many militant groups that have received military training under a US-led program to fight against President Bashar Al-Assad’s government.

The Russian air force started daytime precision strikes against ISIL facilities in the region on Wednesday, September 30. The air group in Syria incorporates more than 50 planes and helicopters, including Sukhoi-24M, Sukhoi-25, and multi-functional Sukhoi-34.

Also in the past 24 hours, the Russian jets carried out 67 sorties against the ISIL targets in Syria.

“Attack aircraft from the Russian air group deployed in Syria carried out record 67 combat missions in the past 24 hours hitting a total of 60 Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant targets,” Russian Air Force chief Lieutenant General Igor Makushev told journalists.

“In the past 24 hours, the Russian combat aircraft carried out 67 missions. The Sukhoi Su-34 and Su-24SM planes destroyed 60 terrorist targets,” Makushev said.

The intensity and effectiveness of airstrikes by Russian air force against the ISIL targets significantly increased in the past 24 hours, inflicting heavy casualties among terrorists.

According to Deputy Chief of the Russian General Staff, Lt. Gen. Igor Makushev, the Russian Sukhoi Su-34 and Su-25SM strike aircraft destroyed six command and communication posts, six ammunition and fuel depots, 17 training camps, three underground bunkers, 16 fortified positions, a vehicle repairs facility, 17 vehicles and two multiple-launch rocket systems.

In addition, directs hits by Russian KAB-500S precision guided bombs destroyed the headquarters of the Liwa al-Haqq terrorist group.

“Radio intercepts confirm that this airstrike killed two IS(IL) high-ranking field commanders and about 200 terrorists,” the general said.

Russia’s Sukhoi Su-25, Su-24M and Su-34 attack aircraft, with the support of Su-30 jets, commenced precision airstrikes against ISIL targets in Syria on September 30, following a request from Syrian President Bashar Assad.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, since the beginning of the air campaign Russian air forces have carried out about 140 strikes against terrorist positions, including command centers, training camps and ammunition depots. Russian warships in the Caspian Sea fired 26 cruise missiles on ISIL targets on Wednesday.

Elsewhere, the Syrian army backed by the Russian warplanes continued offensives on Friday to break the siege of a strategic military airport in the Eastern countryside of the city of Aleppo.

The Syrian troops, backed up by the Russian airstrikes, took full control of the village of Al-Jaboul in the nearby areas of Aleppo’s Kowaires Military Airport.

The Russian warplanes launched several precision strikes on ISIL positions in Al-Jaboul village opening the path for the Syrian ground force to win back the village.

The ISIL terrorists have besieged the Kowaires airport for over 2.5 years now, but the airport itself is under the Syrian army’s control.

The Syrian army’s helicopters supply foodstuff and other needs to the Syrian troops defending the airport.

Meantime, military sources said that the Syria army has shot down the terrorist groups’ spy drone in Beit Hleibiyeh in the Northern countryside of Lattakia.

A hostile surveillance aircraft operated by the terrorist groups was shot down by the Syrian troops as it was flying over the coastal province of Lattakia, the sources said.

The Syrian army is engaged in heavy fighting against the terrorist groups in Lattakia.

In the latest battles on Thursday, the Syrian troops inflicted heavy losses on the foreign-backed militants in the Northern parts of the province.

Also, some 12 terrorists were killed in Syrian airstrikes in the Northern countryside of Lattakia on Tuesday.

The terrorists were killed in the airstrikes in al-Farz, Salma, Ikko and Droushan in the Northern parts of the province.

Also, informed sources said that the Syrian army troops repelled the armed groups’ attacks on al-Breij area in the Eastern territories of Aleppo province and killed over 50 militants.

The sources said that dozes of the militant were also wounded as a result of the army soldiers’ heavy fire on the terrorist groups in al-Breij.

The sources said that there were also fierce clashes between the army and the militant groups in the vicinity of al-Nairab airport, 10 km East of Aleppo city.

Meantime, military officials said that the Syrian Armed Forces’ operations in the Northern parts of the Central province of Hama against the militant groups left over 77 terrorists dead or wounded.

The sources said that 5 terrorists were killed and 12 others were injured in the Syrian army troops’ operations in Kafr Zeita town, one of al-Nusra Fronts’ important strongholds in the province.

An army unit also killed 30 terrorists and destroyed 3 vehicles to the North of Tallet al-Sayad.

Elsewhere, military sources said that the Russian warplanes bombed the positions of the ISIL Takfiri terrorists in Tabaqa airbase and the town’s national hospital, which was used only as the command center of the ISIL since its capture.

The sources said that the Russian Air Force carried out a dozen airstrikes against the strongholds of the ISIL in the Southern territories of Raqqa province.

The Russian fighter jets reportedly targeted the ISIL strongholds at the city of Tabaqa, where the terrorist group has turned the Tabaqa National Hospital into its central command’s headquarters.

In addition to the airstrikes over the Tabaqa National Hospital and the Tabaqa airbase, the Russian Air Force continued to attack the Al-Rusafa Camp (the ISIL’s primary storage facility) and numerous targets inside the provincial capital.

Local sources said on Monday that ISIL terrorists have evacuated the Raqqa province and fled to Iraq.

“The ISIL militants, most of them from the Caucasus, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Chechnya, together with their families have left Raqqa province for Iraq,” a local source told FNA.

The source noted that at least 220 ISIL families have fled to Iraq, and said, “Notorious terrorists such as Abu Talheh Hejazi from Saudi Arabia and ISIL religious police chief Abu Abdullah al-Akidi are among the militants who have fled Raqqa province.”
