'Syrian Armed Opposition Leader' Asks Saqr for Arms in Leaked Audio Tapeإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Al-Akhbar newspaper unveiled on Thursday a taped conversation between al-Mustaqbal MP Oqab Saqr and Abou Nehman, a “leader in the armed Syrian opposition”, during which they apparently agree on a weapon delivery deal.
"Please help us, we need weapons,” Abou Nehman tells Saqr in the audio recording posted on the newspaper's website and aired during OTV's evening newscast.
"Tell me exactly what do you want and the quantities,” the al-Mustaqbal MP answers.
Abou Nehman requests 300 RPGs, 250,000 Russian bullets and 300 guns among other things to be delivered to Aazaz, Tal Refaat and Aleppo's countryside.
The two men then agree to, “as usual”, hand the weapons to Syrian opposition members that go by the names of Abou Baraa and Abou al-Nour.
Saqr, in his most recent interview on Future TV on November 7, rigorously denied any involvement in arming the Syrian opposition, demanding his accusers “to sue him if they find any evidence proving his engagement is such activities”.
