Britain admits funding Syria rebels

Source: Press TV

The UK government has acknowledged that it has provided an extra GBP 2 million to the Western-backed rebels fighting the popular government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Prime Minister David Cameron told a hearing at the House of Commons Liaison Committee on Tuesday afternoon that his government provided cash and equipment to foreign-backed rebels in Syria under such names as ‘aid agencies’ operating on the ground to help deliver emergency medical supplies and food.

The acknowledgement is yet another proof that the rebellion in the Middle Eastern Arab country has its root somewhere in Britain and France, where the governments of Cameron and French president Nicholas Sarkozy built the foundation of a military strike against former Libyan government of dead dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

The two European countries tabled the first draft resolution at the UN Security Council, which called for a no-fly zone over Libya and later it turned out to become an all-out war against a sovereign member of the international community.

The same scenario is being made about Syria, where David Cameron said “Britain would this week, continue to secure a United Nations Security Council resolution demanding an end to the violence and immediate humanitarian access”.

The Prime Minister made three key pledges “to help Syrian citizens, promising more humanitarian assistance, to hold those responsible for slaughter to account and to bring about the political transition that would put a stop to the killing”.

However, Cameron failed to mention the fact that his country’s spying apparatus MI6 was the prime financier of terrorist snipers who kill people from the roofs of the buildings in some cities and towns in Syria.

He also failed to mention another fact that the UK’s former police chief, assistant commissioner John Yates has been deployed to Bahrain, where the ruling family of al-Khalifa regime is brutally killing and torturing people who have come out against corruption and inequality.

John Yates resigned last year from his post at Scotland Yard in the wake of the phone-hacking scandal.

In a show of solidarity with the regime thugs, Yates said that “Bahraini police had faced extraordinary provocation during last year's turmoil”.

Yates described the Bahrainis’ call for free speech and an elected government as vandalism and rioting.
