10,000 EU Citizens among Terrorists in Syria. Western Intelligence begs Syria for Help while sending High-Tech Weapons

Core NATO Member’s Intelligence Service begs Syrian Government for Help, fearing the Return of 10,000 “Holy Warriors” from EU Countries, while the Terrorists receive High-Tech Missiles and are trained, armed and commanded by Core NATO State’s Special Forces.

Christof Lehmann (nsnbc) : EU Intelligence reports that 10,000 EU Citizens are fighting in Syria. In 2013, Germany’s Intelligence Chief went to Damascus 5 Times, asking Syria for Help. Meanwhile, Core NATO Member’s Special Forces distribute High-Tech Weapons, train, and command Al-Qaeda Brigades in Syria.

A classified report of Germany’s Federal Domestic Intelligence Service (BFV) states, according to the German magazine Der Spiegel, that some 200 German-speaking fighters in a “German Camp” in northern Syria were being trained for deployment in the fight against the Syrian Arab Army and the Syrian government.

In September 2013, BFV President Hans-Georg Maaßen stated during a radio broadcast in Deutschlandfunk that his agency knew about some 170 German Muslims who had joined Islamist combat units in Syria. Burkhard Freier, the chief of the domestic intelligence service in the Federal State Nordrhein Westfalen said, during a broadcast in the German TV channel ZDF, that the agency also was aware of minors who had joined the Islamist fighters in Syria.

In October, the French Central Directorate of Interior Intelligence (DCRI), reported that it was aware of 400 French Islamists who had joined Islamist combat units in Syria. Assessments of Intelligence Agencies and experts from other NATO member States, including Ireland, the UK, Denmark, Norway, Spain and Italy substantiate the fact that thousands of “Holy Warriors” from core NATO member States are fighting in Syria alongside Jabhat al-Nusrah, ISIL, ISIS, and other Al-Qaeda brigades.

Meanwhile, the chief of the Federal German Foreign Intelligence service (BND), Gerhard Schindler, visited Syria at least five times in 2013, allegedly because the German Intelligence Agency is concerned about the potential consequences, once these Syria veterans return home.

The European Union’s Intelligence Agency (INTCEN) has apparently similar concerns. INTCEN states in a report that is classified as “For Service Use Only”, that the number of fighters from EU countries who are fighting under the banner of Jabhat al-Nusrah in Syria alone, is estimated to be between 5,000 and 7,000. INTCEN states that a total of 10,000 citizens from EU countries are fighting among Islamist combat units in Syria. The vast majority of them has entered Syria illegally via Turkey.

While Germany’s intelligence chief turns to Damascus five times in 2013 alone, to ask the Syrian government for help, core NATO member states continue arming and fueling the war on on Syria.

On 15 February, nsnbc reported that Saudi Arabia is delivering large shipments of high-tech, Chinese-made anti-craft missiles and sophisticated Russian made Konkurs anti-tank missile systems to the mercenary brigades in Syria. The nsnbc report deconstructs a report published in the Wall Street Journal, that attempts to position Saudi Arabia as the rogue Arab US/NATO ally who provides these weapons to the terrorists, while positioning the USA, and by implication NATO, as if it objected to giving high-tech weapons to the terrorists.

The article “Top US and Saudi Officials responsible for Chemical Weapons in Syria”published in October 2013, however, establishes beyond a reasonable doubt that:

  • That the USA, since 2011, has maintained a presence of US Special Forces, DIA, State Department, CIA, and agencies like USAID at the Ramtha Airbase in Jordan, the Jordanian border town Al-Mafraq, and nearby refugee camps.
  • That the US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army General Martin Dempsey was in Jordan in August, when Saudi Arabia first began delivering Konkurs anti-tank missiles to the mercenaries in Syria, and that no weapons deliveries via Jordan are possible without explicit US approval.
  • That US Special Forces and agencies work in direct liaison with, among others, Jabhat al-Nusrah and Liwa-al-Islam and their supreme commanders, and that there is a direct chain of command from US Special Forces and agencies in Jordan to the high-command of these US-funded al-Qaeda mercenary brigades.

Another fact that proves, that core NATO intelligence services and Special Forces have a high degree of control over which weapons can or cannot be introduced into the theater, is the fact that none of the terrorist brigades has yet used any of the SAM-7, shoulder-fired surface to air missiles, which major brigades like Jabhat al-Nusrah has had since, latest, September 2012.

In September 2012, nsnbc international reported about a shipment of 400 tons of weapons which arrived in Turkey with the Libyan cargo vessel Intisaar (victory). The 400 ton shipment contained, among others, rocket-propelled grenades and SAM-7 missiles.

Major weapons shipments from Libya to Syria are not uncommon. In September 2013, the Foreign Minister of the NATO installed Libyan government boasted that sending troops and arms to Libya is a “source of pride”. In November 2013, the Greek Coast Guard seized a Libyan vessel with 20,000 AK-47 assault rifles en route to the mercenaries in Syria.

Already in June 2012, nsnbc reported that a senior official of the British Defense Department had confirmed that NATO special forces are operating in Syria. The nsnbc report quotes the British newspaper The Daily Star as reporting, that Special Forces are in the country to:

  • Help protect refugees in Syria along the borders.
  • Help armed groups in Syria.
  • Use high-tech satellite computers and radios that can instantly send back photos and details of refugees and Syrian army as the situation develops.

Meanwhile, the presence of US and core NATO member states Special Forces in Syria has been reported in nsnbc as early as 2011, when an officer of the US Special Forces at Ft Bragg, North Carolina, confirmed for nsnbc that Special Forces units were operating in Syria, and disclosed that the strategy that was used for subverting the country was specified in the classified Special Forces Training Circular TC 18-01. The first reference to this disclosure was made in the article “Arabian Summer or NATO’s Fall”, published in nsnbc on 29 August 2011.

SFnsnbc international subsequently attained a copy of the TC 18-01, titled “Special Forces Unconventional Warfare” and published it after weighting the disclosure of classified material against the gross violations of international law which the entire document substantiates. The Training Circular was published in its entirety in the article “US Military Logic behind Syrian Insurgency, the “Special Forces Unconventional Warfare” manual  TC 18-01.

The training circular describes in detail, the architecture of the subversion that is being used against Syria. It details the interplay between political and military strategies of subversion from the assessment of the opposition, over the polarization of the population and the manufacturing of dissent and violence, to a full blown mercenary war or conventional war.

We know today, with certainty, that the 10,000 EU citizens who are fighting in Syria, are fighting under the direct or indirect command of NATO special forces. We know that core NATO member states are arming these mercenaries with high-tech anti-aircraft and anti-tank weapons systems. We also know with absolute certainty that any “terrorist acts” committed by returning “Syria veterans” would be committed under the close supervision of core NATO and EU member state’s intelligence services.

  1. EXPECTED ACTS OF TERRORISM IN EUROPE AND THE USA.

    I did not want to write this as part of the article itself, but I would like to add this comment as a personal assessment and note:

    The risk of acts of terrorism being carried out by so-called Syria veterans will increase in between the coming 30 – 700 days.

    I assess it to be more than 75 % likely that any such act of terrorism, which will be sold to the public as “blowback” would be carried out under the close supervision or observation of NATO, EU, an EU member’s, or a US intelligence service. We could specify this further, but refrain from doing so at this point in time.

    If any such act of “blow-back” terrorism should happen, I myself and others will know “exactly” where to begin an investigation, and for the sake of whatever remaining civil liberties we have, we “will be ready” to make citizen’s arrests. That’s all I have to say about this, other than, that I encourage you to also consider which “legal” steps you will take.

    • Amazing report.
      I only know the legal basis for citizen’s arrests in the UK but I presume people should begin checking out the laws in their respective countries. Lehmann surprised me again. I was totally unaware that there is an EU Intelligence Service. I suggest we should check out this INTCEN, thoroughly. I’m also surprised that the name is INTCEN rather than Gestapo. ;) Since a citizen’s arrest may not be legitimate in all EU countries (i.d.k. about the US), maybe we should look for other legal alleys too. Thanks for a great report. The corporate and state funded propaganda media will collapse.

    I just learned that we have a European Union Intelligence Service.. That is amazing. Did we ever vote for a EU intelligence service ?? INTCEN ?? I am amazed. And 10,000 people, 5-7.000 with al-Nusrah which is al-Qaeda. Where is the media ?? Thank you again for doing a great job at nsnbc.

    I will put BND chief Schindler on my Schindler’s list of repugnant sob’s and add the administration of Merkel das Ferkel to it also. What hypocrisy to ask Damascus for help while stabbing Syria in its back with a rusty antique knife called Wahhabist mercenaries. Blasting Damascus for abuse while begging for help from the victim. How disgusting.

    • RuthM says:

      Zoey.
      After reading this I am ashamed of being a German. You are so right in what you say it is very disgisting. The problem is that our media don’t tell us anything about this and if they do, they make lies out of the truth by bending it.

    Ein EU Geheimdienst – wie wunderbar.
    Man lernt nie aus. Schade das es noch kein nsnbc in Deutsch gibt. Wir weden für dumm verkauft, mit BILD im Sonderangebot!
