The US initiative to supply the so-called moderate Syrian opposition with 50 tons of weapons and ammunition raised many questions as there is no such phenomenon in Syria right now, experts argue.
Members of the moderate opposition were either killed or joined radical Islamist groups, and therefore ‘moderate’ oppositional forces simply do not exist.
The US recently supplied what it views as a ‘moderate’ opposition with 50 tons of weapons and ammunition to fight the ISIL terrorist group in Syria, said Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steve Warren.
US military transport planes delivered 112 containers with small arms and hand grenades to Al-Hasakah Governorate in the north of Syria.
"Most recently, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that we are ready to cooperate with the ‘moderate’ opposition if someone would help us to distinguish where the terrorists are, and where the members of the ‘moderate’ opposition are,” Jabarov told Radio Sputnik.
“However, for some reason no one names them. They are some kind of phantom people and it is not clear who Americans provide their aid to," Vladimir Jabarov said, adding that the US may once again fund terrorists as it already has in Afghanistan.
At the same time, Russia is making a real contribution to the fight against terrorism in Syria, the politician argued. After Russia started its military operation, the terrorists had to retreat, because the Syrian government received real support and help.
“The results of Russia’s actions are clearly visible. The whole world and the neighboring Arab countries understand this, they see real help from Russia in the fight against terrorism,” Jabarov stated.
