Iraqi Minister of Transportation Hadi al-Ameri said on Tuesday that Saudi Arabia supplies weapons to al-Qaeda elements in Syria through Turkey. |
“The Saudis are sending arms to al-Qaeda elements in Syria through Turkey,” al-Ameri said.
His remarks came while media reports disclosed in September that a huge arms cargo has been shipped to Turkey to be delivered to terrorists and armed groups in Syria.
“A Libyan ship carrying the largest consignment of weapons for Syria…has docked in Turkey,” said The Times in an article published mid September.
Quoting a member of the ‘Free Syrian Army’ (FSA), who called himself Abu Mohammad, the article said the over-400-ton cargo included “SAM-7 surface-to-air anti-aircraft missiles and rocket-propelled grenades.”
Abu Mohammad, who told The Times that he “helped to move the shipment from warehouses to the border”, said “this is the largest single delivery of assistance” the gunmen have so far received.
