Syria blames al-Qaeda for Damascus suicide bombing

Syria’s government has blamed al-Qaeda for the suicide explosion that took place in the Damascus neighborhood of Al-Midan on Friday and which reportedly killed at least 25 people in another Friday of protests across the country.

Government officials and media said the unidentified bomber detonated an explosive belt next to buses carrying policemen in Midan, in the south of the capital, just before the weekly anti-regime demonstrations were expected in the area.

The Syrian government also blamed al-Qaeda for the twin bombings that took place in damascus exactly two weeks ago.

But Free Syrian army, colonel Riyadh al-Asaad and the Syrian Local Coordination Committees accused the Syrian regime of president Bashar al Assad of being behind the explosion.

According to reports coming from Damascus, the Syrian government was well prepared for the incident had cameras, ambulances and reporters at the scene of the explosion when it occurred to prove to the world that terrorists were behind the blast .

Arsal

Defense Minister Fayez Ghosn who is reportedly closely associated with the Iranian and Syrian backed Hezbollah and MP Michel Aoun informed the Lebanese cabinet on December 22 that al-Qaeda members had infiltrated the Bekaa town of Arsal near the borders with Syria.

President Assad’s regime which blamed the December 23 rd twin suicide bombing on Al-Qaeda quoted Lebanese officials as warning Syria that Al-Qaeda members infiltrated into Syria from the town of Arsal.

But Interior Minister Marwan Charbel reiterated last Saturday that “there is no organization called Al-Qaeda in Lebanon.” However, he added that there “are people who have been sympathizing with the organization since 2003 following the US occupation of Iraq and after the establishment of fundamentalist movements in Afghanistan and Yemen where Al-Qaeda is present.”

“Al-Qaeda is not present in Lebanon; otherwise the security forces would have uncovered its members ,” Charbel told MTV last Saturday

    America started this Alqaeda buga buga on september 11 false flag attack then alqaeda went to behead journalist, Alqaeda market bombing which only target the civilians specially their own people!! But all other resistance activity such as IED attack , American base attack , Sniper attack are not the cup of tea for Alqaeda and the media seems have no interest to show those attacks. The beneficiary are usually the invading pigs as they can demonize the Muslim resistance and further legitimize their illegal invasion. But after all these dirty deed USA now are willing to negotiate with the Taliban.Its like licking the spit back on which they spat on. After 10 months of uprising Syrian regime start this dirty tactic but this regime is not as strong as USA  so it wont take much longer to see Bashar is running away to save his life. Assad is already committing a lot of crime and on top of it he is doing this false flag operation. It is good that the world will see his demonic attitude.

    I am a Lebanese Alowhet with relatives in Syria and they have expressed to me that they have been threatened to be killed by the secret service if they don’t show their loyalty to the Asad’s including picture in their home and on their face book. The Assad’s and their benefactors are the suppressors of every fresh breath, of any scrap of human rights that come in touch with the Syrian or the Lebanese. Whether they are Alowhe, Sunni, Durzi, Christians alike they are willing to kidnap, and murder in order to push down any opposition to their control. Now they seem to be using their last weapon and that is the propaganda that if the Alowhet loses power in Syria the majority Sunni will kill Allowhet and other minority groups indiscriminately. I believe that we can reduce the effectiveness of their propaganda by promoting tolerance and by identifying that our suppressors are those who hate for us to be more able.
