|Syrian state television has broadcast footage of three young men in a terrorist cell confessing to receiving funds and weapons from Future bloc MP Jamal Jarrah in order to carry out acts of sabotage in Syria.
The three young men, ‘Anas Kanj’, ‘Mohammed Badr Al-Kalam’ and ‘Mohammed El Sokhna’, confessed that they ignited protests in the Umayyad Mosque against the regime and carried out sabotage acts, like attacking a police station in Sbeineh.
Anas Kanj said that he received money and arms from an intermediary named Ahmed Awdeh, a member of Muslim Brotherhood Group, who connected him with Jarrah.
“Ahmed told me that Jarrah is generous and will support my family with money, and that he will give us sophisticated weapons, transported from Lebanon through bribery, and we’ll be trained by other cells we do not know. He promised me to meet Jarrah but could not because of his busyness,” Anas said.
“Ahmed also promised to introduce me to Fida’a Sayyed, Muslim Brotherhood Security General Chief in Syria, and ordered me to shoot at the protesters and film it in order to post the scenes on the ‘Syrian Revolution Website’, so that it draws international attention on the need to get rid of the Syrian regime because it is an ‘opressive regime’,” he added.
The official Al-Thawra newspaper said that Kanj was instructed “to open fire on protesters in order to sow disarray and lead people to believe that the security forces was shooting on the demonstrators.”
State television also showed weapons seized, including pistols, hand grenades and automatic rifles.
Jarrah denied on Wednesday the accusations against him saying: “We have neither the ability nor the intent to interfere in Syrian domestic affairs.”
