Qatar finances and arms radical intervention force based in Turkey to activate it in Syria with the purpose to defeat the government of Tyrant president Bashar al-Assad reports the Israeli website DEBKAFile.
According to this report, which Cham Press Agency echoes today, that paid contingency made of mercenaries from several countries of the region plus radical Syrian from Muslim Brotherhood had named it Syrian Army of Liberation, DEBKAFile says.
The statements specifies that the paid force by Doha had been mobilized in battalions and military brigades in camps in Turkish territory, with the consent of the Ankara government near the Turkey Syria border.
This month Syrian border guard had miscarried four infiltration attempts of armed groups, the last of them at dawn on Wednesday in Idleb, which left dead and wounded to the aggressors supported by a gang in Syrian territory.
Armed bands raid to Syria from Turkey?
A dispatch from Syrian SANA news agency taken from the authorities' declarations of the northern province informed they seized the group a great quantity of weapons, military uniforms and modern communication devices.
The information from the Israeli media adds that Qatar decided to boost a plan after the defeat and dead of the Libyan leader Muammar El Gaddafi as the mercenary army took part in raids in Libya to support the demise of Muammar Gaddafi.

By “Anti-Syria” is meant “anti-Assad”.
Didn’t they get Hussein’s memo that NO Country may interfere in another.
Well, the displaced Mercs from Libya did have to go some place to find meaningful, gainful employment...
What is it with the Middle East anyway? Do they all stay up nights just trying to think of new ways to p*ss each other off?
The source of this is Debka (which means garbage in Esperanto) with the official Syrian agitprop org (SANA) contributing so-called information.
Latest tweets off ALgezeera Syria Blog are saying Assad gov. dropping shipping container loads of prisoners into the Med. Sea. Rather far-fetched I'd say. However, Iranians pretty much operating port at Latakia so who knows what they are capable of doing...
I would suggest that Qatar is the front for funds, weapons and troops from all the GCC. The command structure can only be guessed at, but I feel certain there is at least a full US Colonel in at the table advising. He has likely several officers and enlisted staffers as well.
There is unity behind the Qatari facade.
Syrian Christians would disagree. The invaders are trying to set up another radical Islamist regime.
They are in war-propaganda mode just like the US media (that was anti-war before the election of Obama). It is reminiscent of the reports of babies being thrown from incubators and dissidents being ground into hamburger meat during the first and second Gulf wars.
Syrian Christians are participating in the downfall of Assad, but thanks for speaking on their behalf.
Debka must be reading FR:
They’d be better off if they did.
