The Saudi Arabian spy chief has ordered al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria, al-Nusra Front, to take leadership of the foreign-backed militants in Syria through assassinating the members of the so-called Free Syrian Army.
According to Syrian media, Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al Saud has decided to bring the militants fighting the Syrian forces under the umbrella of al-Nusra Front.
According to Prince Bandar’s orders, any militant commander who refuses to join the terrorist group should be assassinated.
Last month, the US State Department designated al-Nusra Front group as a terror organization linked to al-Qaeda in Iraq. Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia are reportedly arming and funding militants fighting the Damascus government to implement Western countries’ plans in the Arab county.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March 2011. Many people, including large numbers of security personnel, have been killed in the violence. The Syrian government says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants fighting the Syrian government are foreign nationals.
Several international human rights organizations have accused the foreign-sponsored militants of committing war crimes.
