Fisk uncovers evidence proving Saudi regime's involvement in buying and delivering weapons to terrorists in Syria

LONDON, (ST)- More evidence has surfaced to reveal the involvement of the Saudi regime in buying and delivering weapons to the terrorist organizations in Syria.

In an article published by the UK's "The Independent" Newspaper, British writer and journalist Robert Fisk said that "hundreds of mortars along with their shipment documents and factory instructions were found in one of the hideouts of Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization in Aleppo. The papers indicate that these weapons were made in the Bosnian village of Novi Travnik.

"One of the shipment papers carried the dispatcher’s name: Ifet Krnjic," Fisk said, clarifying that he travelled to Bosnia to meet this person and ask him how these weapons arrived to Syria. 

 Krnjic acknowledged that his signature was on one of these documents and said that the Saudis had sent these weapons, specifically a Saudi minister and three Saudi army officers who had visited Krnjic at the factory.

The prominent British journalist went on to say that he tried to show these documents and facts to the Saudis, but they denied everything as if the documents and the mortars were fake.

 Fisk made it clear that the mortars found in the above mentioned Jabhat al-Nusra basement were more than the entire British army possessed.

These mortars were shipped from Bosnia to Saudi Arabia and then to Turkey and then crossed the Syrian border to the city in which they were found, 12 miles from the frontier, in Aleppo, Fisk said.
