Dara'a: Al-Nusra Receives Large Financial Back-up from Foreign Backers to Continue War on Syrian Army

TEHRAN (FNA)- A military source disclosed that the Al-Nusra Front (recently renamed to Fatah al-Sham Front) has received almost $100,000 from some western countries, Arab States of the Persian Gulf and Israel to stage massive attacks on the Syrian Army in Dara’a.

The source said that a meeting was held amongst representatives of the security bodies of some western states, Arab countries in the Persian Gulf and Israel in one of the residential areas in Dara’a with the commanders of terrorist groups on February 13-14.

The source went on to say that commanders of the terrorist groups received $100,000 in the meeting to intensify attacks on government forces’ positions in Dara’a.

The source said that terrorist groups knew that they would suffer heavy defeat in battle with the Syrian army but conducted the attack in order not to lose the financial supports of their foreign backers for future operations in Dara’a.

He underlined the terrorist groups’ heavy defeat in the battle with the army men, saying the terrorist front has collapsed and the terrorists only try to save their credit in the eyes of their foreign backers.

The army men targeted the movements of Al-Nusra in the neighborhood of al-Feran and South of Old Customs inside Dara’a city and West of Jisr al-Qariyeh al-Qarbi region and the town of al-Na’eimeh on Friday, destroying a tank.

A military vehicle of the terrorists was destroyed in Jisr al-Qariyeh al-Qarbi and most of the members of the terrorist group were killed in al-Na’eimeh in Eastern Dara’a.
