October 9, 2017 – Fort Russ News – Paul Antonopoulos

Chief of the Main Operations Department of the Syrian Army Ali al-Ali said on Monday that the United States provides weapons to jihadist groups, including ISIS, and not to the supposed moderate opposition. 

“We know that the United States supplied to terrorists in Syria 1,421 trucks with military property and armaments between June 5 and September 15,” he revealed.

“The weapons were allegedly meant for the fight against terrorists, but in the end they came into the hands of gunmen of the ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra (Hayyat Tahrir al-Sham),” he said.

According to the Syrian military, most weapons obtained by Syrian radicals are purchased by US defense companies Chemring and Orbital ATK under the Pentagon’s state program on assistance to US allies, TASS reported.
