Syria: Al-Nusra Terrorists Receive Advanced Anti-Aircraft Missiles

 TEHRAN (FNA)- Informed sources disclosed that the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front has recently received tens of anti-aircraft missiles.

“Over 100 of surface-to-air missiles have been sent to al-Nusra-held regions,” the sources said, adding, “No details on the supplier or the kind of missiles have thus far been provided.”

The US media sources disclosed on Monday that a large volume of arms and ammunition sent by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to terrorist-held regions in Syrian were found in the black market in Jordan.

The American and Jordanian officials were quoted by the New York Times as claiming that the weapons and ammunition dispatched by CIA and Saudi Arabia to Jordan for Syrian terrorist groups were stolen by Jordanian intelligence operatives and sold to arms merchants on the black market.

Some of the allegedly stolen weapons were used in a shooting in November that killed two Americans and three others at a police training facility in Amman, a joint investigation by the New York Times and Al Jazeera said.

Jordanian officers who were part of the plan “reaped a windfall” from sale of weapons, using the money to buy iPhones, SUVs and other luxury items, according to the paper, which cited Jordanian officials. CIA could not be immediately reached for comment.
