France & Turkey plot to assasinate Assad..Syria troops killed in ambush in Iraq
Lebanese Asianews website says the movie, which has been produced by the well-known Syrian media activist Khedar Awarake, shows confessions by those who were on a joint mission to kill top Syrian officials.
According to the report, Syrian security organizations have recently defused assassination attempts by Turkey and France’s intelligence agencies on the lives of Assad and Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem.
The report added that Turkish and French spy agencies have set up a joint operation room aimed at accomplishing the assassination mission. It added that their mission had overlapped with operations of security services of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the US on many times.
The report said that they also had tried to recruit high-ranking officials in Syrian governmental offices, including the office of Muallem and the presidential palace in Damascus.
Syria accuses Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey as well as some Western countries of fanning the flames of violence that have erupted in the country since March 2011.
The Syrian government says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants are foreign nationals.
At least 42 Syrian soldiers were killed in a well-coordinated ambush Monday after seeking refuge across the border in Iraq following clashes with rebels in their home country, officials said. The attack in Iraq’s restive western province of Anbar is likely to significantly raise concerns that Iraq could be drawn into the Syrian civil war.
Iraqi officials said the Syrians had sought refuge through the Rabiya border crossing in northern Iraq during recent clashes with rebels and were being escorted back to Syria through a different border crossing farther south when the ambush occurred. The gunmen struck near the area of Akashat, not far from the Syrian border, although the identity of the attackers was not known.
A senior military intelligence official said the attackers appeared to have been tipped off about the soldiers’ movements and prepared a well-coordinated attack involving roadside bombs and rocket-propelled grenades. They finished off the attack by spraying the vehicles with bullets.
He and another official accused al-Qaida in Iraq of organizing the attack because the militant group is known to have a presence in the area where the ambush occurred. They said it was unlikely that Syrian rebels had managed to cross the border from Syria into Iraq to carry out the attack.
At least seven Iraqi soldiers who were escorting the Syrians were also killed, officials said.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to release the information to reporters.
