Today, two Qatari and 6 Turkish officers were killed in a commando style raid by an elite Syrian Army special forces unit. These officers were commanding al Nusra units that entered Syria in the past 8 hours from Turkey. In addition to the Qatari and Turkish officers, two dozen senior al Nusra military and political officers were killed, the core of their command structure.
Stories in the press over the past 24 hours have cited American and Israeli complicity in training and equipping this invading force. With the intelligence collected after today’s raid, however, there is are broader issues to consider. First of all, al Nusra is a listed terror organization, an Al Qaeda “franchise” on every prohibited list, American and European, in existence.
Any aid or affiliation by any individual, government or organization, aiding this group, inside Syria or elsewhere is, according to legal opinions and operational guidelines established by the United States and NATO, to be considered guilty of material assistance to terrorism and subject to direct military attack no matter where on earth such an entity or organization might be.
Now we have inexorable proof that the government of Turkey, a NATO power and the government of Qatar, a treaty partner of the United States, are operating inside Syria on behalf of a clearly admitted terrorist organization assumed to be a “clear and present danger” to all nations, not just Syria but the United States as well.
Over the past 24 hours, significant military forces have entered Syria from Turkey. Here is the hard intelligence we have received from sources inside Syria:
Two columns entered Syria, one commanded by officers of the Qatar national army in uniform, the second by officers of the Turkish Army. Columns had new vehicles with heavy weapons including:
- American TOW wire guided missiles/latest configuration
- Kornet missiles, part of a 2008 purchase not publicly admitted but verifiable
Last night, Syrian time, a Syrian special forces unit, working in concert with intelligence and reconnaissance commands with advanced sigint (signals intelligence) combined with thermal and SAR (synthetic aperture radar) imagery located the Turkish-Qatari-al Nusra combined operations center. An attack was launched. The following communique from the Syrian Army High Command comments on that action and the exploitation thereafter (translation):
A Great Victory
Our military has surprised the world. The myth that our army did not even Maldih time reveals a quarter of strength and valor has been written of. The legend of our Army plays a skillful tune.
Today at nine o’clock evening for the first time since the start of the dirty on the ground war the unity of our very own very, very correctly termed Shock and Quiet Liquidation Forces (literal translation) and then exploitation and monitor intelligence professional has scored a significant success.
The implementation of a complex process led by Colonel (Rommel) Antique, who led the attack personally along with 22 men killed or captured 31 leaders of the Al-Nusra Front.
This included two Qatari officers and six Turkish officers. Military secrecy requires that we not indicate if they were simply killed or captured.
Martyred during the attack was one officer. The operational commander and all but two of the special unit (martyred) returned safely including Colonel “Rommel.”
May Allah grant us victory.

The video above, in English, Arabic and Hebrew, provides more than ample proof of Israel’s close alliance with Saudi Arabia and other Arab states. The initial speaker is Professor Asher Susser of Tel Aviv University who describes the context and motivations, including Israel’s need to keep Lebanon as pro-Israel Arab State.
