SYRIA. Mujahideen prepare for U.S. air strikes

Publication time: 30 August 2013, 23:29

According to the Washington Post, the Mujahideen in Syria began redeploying their headquarters, warehouses and other important facilities prior to the intended US air strikes.

In many parts of the northern and eastern provinces that have fallen almost entirely under Mujahideen control, Mujahideen groups have been evacuating headquarters, moving military equipment and, in some instances, fleeing to what is considered safer ground in mountainous terrain.


Although the United States did not declare their intention to strike at the Mujahideen, Washington has long included Al-Nusra Front, for example, into their list of "terrorist organizations".

 

On Thursday, convoys of Mujahideen of Al-Nusra Front, Islamic State of Iraq and Sham, and Ahrar al-Sham left Aleppo, heading into the mountains to the west.

Tawhid Brigades fighters, the largest subdivision of the Free Syrian Army in Aleppo, say they, too, fear that America is going to bomb them.


In a statement distributed on the Twitter account of one of its supporters, the rebel group Fateh al-Islam offered advice to Mujahideen, warning that for every US missile that hits a regime target, another will strike a jihadi base.

 

"Start changing your locations, and use safe houses, and don't move around in obvious convoys", said the supporter, Abdullah Saker, detailing precautionary measures. "Take away mobile phones from the troops, and send them away from the leadership. America destroyed jihadi bases in a very short period of time in Afghanistan and Iraq, and killed a large number of them, because they weren't prepared. So don't fall in the trap of laziness".

 

Meanwhile, the US government issued a proof of the guilt of the Syrian authorities in chemical attack near Damascus. Without waiting for the presentation of the relevant report by UN inspectors, which can be released no earlier than Saturday, Washington blamed Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad in the incident.

Secretary of State John Kerry said that at least 1,429 people, including 426 children, were killed, as a result of chemical attack near Damascus on August 21, according to Reuters. At the same missiles and weapons of mass destruction fired exclusively by government troops, and representatives of the official authorities visited the area before the attack and warned of the need to wear protective masks, the report said.


Washington has got to know three days about the impending attack from a variety of sources before it took place, the report said. All the data in the report is estimated as information "with a high degree of confidence": Kerry stressed that the United States excludes repeating the mistakes of the Iraq campaign.
