“America Is On Our Side”: Al-Nusra Commander Tells German Press US Is Arming Jihadists

In a striking interview with German journalist Jürgen Todenhöfer published today the German press including the prominent newspaper Focus, a militant jihadist commander said that US weapons are being delivered to Jabhat Al-Nusra by governments that Washington supports, adding that American instructors were in Syria to teach how to use the new equipment.

“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,” Jabhat al-Nusra unit commander Abu Al Ezz said in an interview with Koelner Stadt-Anzeiger newspaper from the city of Aleppo. According to the commander, the militants should be receiving more “sophisticated weapons” from their backers to succeed against the Syrian government.

For those pressed for time, below is a summary of what the Al-Nusra commander said:

They are directly supported by the US

They received tanks and other heavy weaponry via Libya and Turkey

They got officers and experts from the US, Israel, Turkey inside Aleppo

The commanders of IS are led by Western intelligence

They are against cease-fires and aid deliveries

“The U.S. is on our side”

In the full interview, the commander notes that “The fight is difficult. The regime is strong and gets support from Russia,” the jihadist explained. Al Ezz said that Jabhat Al-Nusra “won battles thanks to TOW rockets. Due to these rockets, we reached a balance with the regime. Our tanks came from Libya via Turkey, joined by the [BM-21] multiple rocket launchers,” he said.

“We will fight until the regime is toppled,” he said, referring to Assad’s government. Al-Nusra Front wants “to establish an Islamic state that will be ruled according to the Sharia law. We do not recognize any secular state.”

The government forces have an advantage because of aircraft and missile launchers, but “we have the American-made TOW missiles, and the situation in some areas is under control,” Al Ezz added.

But the most stunning admission came when asked if the TOW missiles were initially intended for Jabhat Al-Nusra or if the group obtained them from the moderate Free Syrian Army, the jihadist clarified: “No, the missiles were given to us directly.”

……………..Finally, in case there is still any confusion, the commander openly confirmed that Jabhat Al-Nusra “are part of Al Qaeda.”

“Actually, we were inside one group together with the Islamic State. But the Islamic State has been used in accordance with the interests and political purposes of the big powers like America, and the group has drifted away from our principles. Most of the IS leaders are working with intelligence services, and it’s now clear for us. We, the Jabhat Al-Nusra, have our own way,” Al Ezz said.

Syrian Army Deploying Hundreds of Forces in Kuweires for Imminent Operation in Al-Bab Region

Military sources announced on Tuesday that the Syrian Army has deployed a large number of soldiers in Kuweires airbase in Eastern Aleppo to launch large-scale offensives in ISIL-held regions Northeast of the province.

“Thousands of Syrian army soldiers, previously deployed in Southern Aleppo and Northern Hama, poured into the Eastern countryside of Aleppo on Sunday and Monday, as the Syrian Army prepares for a large-scale military operation near the ISIL stronghold in al-Bab,” the sources said.

Media sources announced on Monday that the Turkish Army was reinvigorating its presence in Syria’s Northern province of Aleppo to launch the third phase of its so-called anti-ISIL operation, codenamed the Euphrates Shield, alongside pro-Ankara terrorist groups.

“The Turkish Army is dispatching more soldiers and military equipment to Northern Syria to launch the third phase of the Euphrates Shield Operations to back terrorist groups, mainly the Free Syrian Army (FSA), to capture the key city of al-Bab in Northeastern Aleppo,” the sources said.

“The Turkish army, meantime, has deployed thousands of soldiers at its border with Syria to use them against the ISIL if the FSA fails to capture al-Bab,” they added.

“Turkey blamed ISIL of shelling its border town of Kilis,” they said.
