Syrian MP Describes Qatar, S. Arabia as Puppets of US, Zionist entity in Region

A Syrian parliamentarian lashed out at Qatar and Saudi Arabia for their plots against Syria, and stressed that they are acting as puppets of the US and Israel in the region.

Mohammad Zahir Ghanoom told FNA on Wednesday that some Persian Gulf Arab littoral states, such as Qatar and Saudi Arabia, are the "real plotters" in Syria,according to FNA.

"These countries' attempts to dispatch terrorists to Syria, fund these terrorists and facilitate the trend of arm smuggling to them came to a point that they could undermine tranquility and security in Syria for a short period of time," the Syrian lawmaker stated.

Ghanoom said that "Doha coalition" and Qatar are tools in the hands of the Zionist enemy and the US, and stated that they are still sending terrorists and arms to Syria under the support of the superpowers such as the US and the western states.

The Syrian legislator, however, noted that the plots of Qatar and Saudi Arabia will no longer produce fruit for them due to the proper measures taken by the Syrian government and army to thwart their plots.

In January, sources said that a large number of spying cells from Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar are operating in Syria to help the armed rebels topple the Damascus government.

Informed sources told the Palestinian al-Manar weekly that Israeli, Saudi, Turkish and Qatari intelligence officers, backed by the US, have infiltrated into Syria via the Turkish borders, adding that each spying cell is comprised of 16 agents.

According to the sources, the main goal of the intelligence groups is gathering intelligence, especially in the form of footage and images, from Syria's sensitive and important sites, the country's military grid and power in particular.

Al-Manar had also earlier reported that Saudi Arabia and Qatar have been financing and supplying armed rebels in Syria with more explosive materials they have recently purchased from the US, Israel and UK in a bid to help the terrorists carry out their anti-government operations in the Syria.

Saudi Arabia and Qatar have smuggled the explosives to Syria with the assistance of the intelligence services of the Arab country's neighboring countries, including Turkey, the al-Manar quoted informed security sources as saying in December.

The sources also disclosed that there are special terrorist garrisons in Turkey which are administered by the security officers of Israel and western countries.
