Desperate for arms, terrorists in Homs called in a supply of guns the way one might order a pizza in the United States. Well, Syrian Military Intelligence intercepted the call from Deir Ba’albah and alerted Lebanese Internal Security which, amazingly, actually sent a regiment of troops to the border crossing at Wadi Khalid to interdict the transport and arrest the smuggler who has not been identified by name fully.
Here’s the inside scoop from SyrPer: Since the death of terrorist Hariri hog-slave Wissam Al-Hassan, essentially Director of Operations for Lebanese I.S., border guards were picked for their loyalty to Sunni interests or Lebanese Forces Zionist manservant, Samir Geagea. It is also, with much shame, that some Syrian border guards across the way at Tel-Kalakh were “on the take”, looking askance while tons of ammunition and weapons were smuggled into Homs.
It was also common knowledge that certain Lebanese and Syrian officers were available for a bribe in order to avoid a search. Those days are over with the death of Wissam Al-Hassan, the outing of Uqab Saqr and evolution of a more coherent security strategy.
This is the crossing at Wadi Khalid. Not so easy any more thanks to the demise of March 14 and the criminal investigation into the weapons trafficking racket run by Uqab Saqr.
The weapons discovered by Lebanon’s Internal Security Bureau were Rocket Propelled Grenades which the rats used to fight off Syria’s armor and light rifles with ammunition. According to our sources, this is what the terrorists ordered during a conversation monitored by S.M.I. It is obvious that the rats are running out of ammo. Wael says they are also running out of food because they have infested areas already destroyed and pillaged. “Unless they get out soon, we expect a large number to surrender just because they’re starving”, says Wael.
Lebanese security had a problem when Wissam Al-Hassan was directing operations. He was purposely coordinating with Uqab Saqr and his patron, Sa’ad Hariri, in Paris, the transportation of weapons into Syria. The fact that these acts could trigger a wider war in Lebanon itself was not a concern to these men, since the CIA, and especially, French Intelligence, had been directing their activities to such an extent that sixteen French spies were permitted to set up an electronic base in Akkar Province to control and handle operations by the FSA and the Jabhat Al-Nusra. The French spies, as we reported last summer, came in swaggering and loaded with specialized equipment into Beirut airport. This was the legacy of that weasel, Wissam Al-Hassan.
Just yesterday, Lebanese security sources shocked the world with a declaration that “certain suspicious foreign agencies had set up shop in Lebanon.” My God! We are shocked. Now the question is what they are going to do about it?
