Russian Military: Hayat Tahrir al-Sham Receives Weapons From Parties Seeking To Derail "Peace Process" In Syria

Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) is receiving weapon supplies from the third parties seeking to derail “the peace process in the de-escalation zones, ousting the moderate opposition from there,” the Russian military said on February 7.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry’s  spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov, Nayat Tahrir al-Sham [Jabhat al-Nusra] remains a major source of the instability in “de-escalation zones” and across the country, in general.

Konashenkov also voiced concern with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham militants obtaining MANPADs, which could be used “not only in Syria and not only against warplanes.” He added  that the Russian military is working to trace the channels through which the weapons have been supplied.

The spokesman also recalled the UAV attack at the Russian facilities in Hmeimim and Tartus.

“This confirms our fears that the terrorists of Al-Qaeda’s offshoot [Jabhat al-Nusra] have become an obedient tool in the hands of one or a number of technologically advanced countries that are dissatisfied with Russia’s key role in liberation of Syria from Daesh [ISIS]”, Konashenkov said.

    I am wondering which technologically advanced countries may be involved…

    And again no proves. This man falls in delusion…

    I know one famous quote of a former damn minister of my country: Laurent Fabius saying “Al NUSRA is doing a good job” (2015), furthermore he advocated (together with GB) to lift the weapon embargo to “Syrian rebels” . Al NUSRA has been supported by NATO since the beginning. Remember AL Qaeda was created by the US

    • You can call me Al

      Yep and currently the HTS is fighting with the FSA and ……Turkey (Nato).

    • Joe Doe

      NATO and Saudi Arabia. This weapons most likely came from Iraq, as Iraq is occupy by NATO and they had obtain a lot of weapons from defeated ISIS. There is many underground supplies lines and for NATO or Saudi Arabia obtain such weapons and put in the delivery with underground channels is very easy

      • christianblood

        Exactly right!

        Nato+U$A+Saudi-Arabia+UK+France+Turkey+Jordan+Israel=ISIS

        The numbers have been examined by various groups as the amount of weapons taken from Iraq was low. One study of 40,000 weapons found Iraq represented less than 1 %, while 2 % were NATO weapons the rest were Eastern Europe ,China and EU purchased by NATO and GCC to be supplied to the “rebels” which mostly ended up in ISIS hands directly.

    • christianblood

      Very well-said. Thank you!

  • leon mc pilibin

    Russia,Syria,Iran,Hezbollah and its allies need to bring the truth out about the lying double standards of the Democracy bringing coalition of Chaos into the open.Then show the same amount of mercy to the zionist puppet head choppers that they deserve,and send them to HELL,ASAP-

  • Floyd Hazzard

    They speak as novices. Long before the peace there was a war. Prosecute the war effectively until peace comes instead of abandoning the battlefield and increasing the complications that are spawned by such stupidity.

  • 911psyops

    Name names or shut up, call out the US or stay quiet. Russians believe the world would congratulate them on their diplomatic posturing. All I see is the Russians being vilified at every opportunity while they name nameless names. How stupid and naive can these Russians be or continue to be

    • 1691

      And you must be one of the exceptional… victims of the holohoax, desperate for ww3. It must be frustrating for you.

      • 911psyops

        Excuse me, nothing could be further from the truth. The holohoax is all a sham to get Europe to maintain that illegal state Zioland. I am not desperate for WW3 but I am also not one to be bullied and stand down because of the consequences. I was thought to stand up for what I believe in no matter what the cost. If the US wants to destroy the world because they don’t get what they want in Syria then so be it, Jew, Americans, Africans, Chines, Indians would all die. Maybe it would be for the best since man has be an aggressive destructive entity that planet earth could do without

        • 1691

          Very well then. One could say that we are on the same page, hmmm, almost.
          ” I was thought to stand up for what I believe in no matter what the cost.”
          Me too, you know. Apart from that I was thought to always keep my name neat, (not to stain my reputation) and to stay in balance ( the sence of proportion).
          I have learned that it is better to lose a battle in order to win the war.

    • John Whitehot

      bullshit.

      not making names is a measure of restraint that in diplomatic matters is highly ethical.

      Russia proves that it does not put itself at the level of vulgarity at which the US, UK and Israel fell in these years.

      Besides, there is no certainty in saying that the US provided the weapons being discussed.
      It could also be Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, even Ukraine.

        “Besides, there is no certainty in saying that the US provided the weapons being discuss
        It could also be Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, even Ukraine.”

        Or captured from Syrian or Iraqi stockpiles. See https://sputniknews.com/military/201802071061439870-who-sourced-jihadist-manpads-analysis/

        • John Whitehot

          funny that the Sputnik page provides also the theory that weapons may come from Ukraine.

          • Graeme Rymill

            I wasn’t disputing the countries you listed. I was just adding two sources you conveniently ignored.

          • John Whitehot

            yes yes, I got it in first place there was no arguing intent.

      • 911psyops

        Yeah Russia plays diplomacy while the US kills 100+ Syrian Arab fighters. Your world seems to be made of candy canes and lemon drops. Nobody cares about diplomacy you fool, nobody cares about moral high ground. Russia twiddles its thumbs while Israel bombs its so called ally, with allies like Russia who needs enemies

        • John Whitehot

          my world is destined to live in peace and fluorish.

          your world is destined to burn engulfed in the flames of nuclear war.

          The funny part is that your kind believes not to be stupidly naive while attributing the same to those making efforts for peace.

          Remember my words when you’re about to be vaporized, and if you have time, try to realize who was living in a naive stupor.

          • 911psyops

            Your logic is that because the world could be vaporized if any country stands up to America, we should not defend ourselves? That’s your logic? Because the bully is determined to destroy the playpen if opposed, we should just sit around and be bullied? ROFLMAO, you are a true piece of sit with your self righteous BS. This is real life and death not fantasies and dream

          • John Whitehot

            no, as usual you understood nothing.

            Your logic is that of jewish feuds.
            Something that stupid minorate apes are able to do and understand, throwing shit at each other from one tree to another.

            Mine is that diplomacy is a necessary instrument in achieving peace and stability.

            The US have already lost militarly, the only thing that you agitprovocators can exploit is that it does not get TV time.

            As for the “real life and death” thing, reserve it for some mentally challenged, obese, attention-deficit british kid, because you ain’t even getting close, let alone touch me.

          • 911psyops

            For someone who project peace you sure are a disrespectful and angry person inside. Do you kiss your mother with that mouth? Face reality hoss we are just keyboard warriors who have no control of anything except for our pathetic lives. The owners of this planet makes the final decisions…Good day to you and take your meds before you burst a vein

    • Bob

      ‘Russians believe the world would congratulate them on their diplomatic posturing. All I see is the Russians being vilified at every opportunity…’

      Then you don’t see very much at all, as presumably you live in your own US bubble. Outside the US everyone knows that the ‘Russia-gate’ exercise is an absurd Neo-Con/Deep State and Democrat Party driven political farce, a desperate theatrical show to save their power base, foreign policy agenda and themselves – legally, from prosecution. But Neo-Cons themselves are very dangerous, as they want war with Russia and China to achieve their fantasies of full global dominance, and they are ideologues obsessed with whole-scale control, and the deaths of many US soldiers, or even citizens, is certainly not their primary concern to achieve their goal.

      • 911psyops

        So you feel because I criticize Russia I am American? I an just calling things as I see it. Have you noticed the world powers has no respect for any laws? Iraq, Libya, Syria, Israel constant land grabbing, Afghanistan etc etc. which laws were followed when these countries were bombed? Yet Russia believes that the destroyers of countries plays by some invisible rule book? Russia is either dumb or naive but they need to face reality or go home and defend thier country

    • Tony B.

      Well, you don’t seem wise enough to name Israel.

      • 911psyops

        Could be Israel but US is the most likely since they are the bulldogs for the Zios

  • Igor Dano

    Dirty tricks from Tel Aviv.

  • svenne svensk

    In the future we could maybe see passengers plane become targets of terrorism because of those idiots that gave them the weapons
