The Armenian Christian town of Kassab in Syria, which sits on the border with Turkey, was recently “liberated” by rebel forces, including Jabhat-Al Nusra, which is officially designated as a terrorist group by the U.S. State Dept.
Kassab is the location of the last regime controlled border crossing with Turkey – a crossing that has now fallen into the hands of the rebels. First order of business for the rebels?: the destruction of alcohol (see photo above which is being circulated on Twitter) and the ransacking of churches (see photo just below). Syria analyst Joshua Landis had this caption accompanying his link to the photo on Twitter: “Abu Qtada al Masri tweets pictures of his rebel friend destroying crucifixes inside Kassab church”:
Watch the following RT Arabic report: Kassab Armenian refugees describe how Turkey helped Jihadists take their villages.
Do you find their claims hard to believe? Multiple Syria analysts are currently circulating video footage of the Kassab border crossing which shows Al-Nusra terrorists flowing across it freely into Syria. Watch the video here.
Turkey, a NATO country, has given Al-Qaeda open access to Syria and there is now undeniable video footage confirming what many us have been saying for a long time now.
Today, this has exploded into a massive Turkish scandal, resulting in Youtube being blocked in Turkey nationwide. Read this excerpt from “Turkish government blocks Youtube after recording is leaked” in the LA TIMES:
Turkey blocked access to YouTube on Thursday, hours after a recording of a sensitive national security meeting was leaked by an anonymous user on the video sharing site. Turkey’s state-run Anadolu news agency confirmed the ban as an “administrative decision” by the Turkish Telecommunications Authority, while the Foreign Ministry issued a statement promising the “heaviest punishment possible” against the source of the leaks.
