A political analyst says the recent unrest in Syria has been the result of wicked US and Israeli policies and the Turkish government executes such policies in the Arab nation.
Political analyst in Middle East affairs Hadi Mohammadi told Fars News Agency on Sunday that Ankara is playing a double game -- claiming to support the Damascus government in order to have greater influence in the Middle East, while at the same time supporting and providing a safe haven for armed gangs seeking to incite revolt in Syria.
He noted that the United States has now formed operational headquarters in southern Turkey close to the border with Syria to direct the riots in the Arab country after its attempts to cause unrest in southern Syria were unsuccessful.
Mohammadi said that the United States has assigned Turkey to carry out its anti-Syria plan. It has hence provided aid to the Turkish Army to assist Syrian dissidents in crossing into Turkey and settle in tent villages set up in Turkey's Hatay Province.
Hundreds of people, including security forces, have been killed during clashes in Syria since the beginning of unrest in the country in mid-March.
The shadowy opposition accuses security forces of being behind the killings. But, the government blames armed gangs for the deadly violence, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has vowed to bring those behind the killings to justice as several members of armed terrorist groups have been arrested so far.
The detainees have confessed to receiving weapons and money from foreign organizations to kill Syrian civilians and security forces and create chaos in the country.
