A Turkish political party says the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and Israel’s spy agency Mossad are responsible for massacres in Syria, Press TV reports.
A Turkish paper quoted the Deputy Chief of Turkey’s Felicity Party, Temel Karamollaoglu as saying, “Not only the Syrian crisis will not be solved, but also it will lead to civil war.”
On the one hand, western countries claim that they do not support armed conflicts in Syria, but, on the other, the US is obviously making attempts to arm the Syrian rebels, who are fighting the Middle Eastern country’s government, he said.
“Due to having common interests in Syria, the US, Israel, and the EU make no attempt to stop bloodshed in the country.”
However -- Russia and China have rejected military intervention in Syria because they witnessed the outcome of the West’s war in Libya, Karamollaoglu added. Following the foreign intervention in Libya, which led to the death of the country’s former dictator Muammar Gaddafi, thousands of innocent people were killed by the Western military alliance of NATO’s aerial bombardments, he said.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March 2011. The violence has claimed the lives of hundreds of people, including many security forces.
Damascus blames ‘outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups’ for the unrest, asserting that it is being orchestrated from abroad.
The West and the Syrian opposition, however, accuse the government of killing protesters.
