'Syrian Armed Opposition Leader' Asks Saqr for Arms in Leaked Audio Tape

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

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”.

Hey Hassan first lay off drinking the sewage it's turning you into a shocked yellow eyed zombie, although the odor has improved. Not even Al-Manure wanted to touch this "evidence" they gave it to OTV.

that's kind of weird though, was he taping himself or was the caller taping him? Either way it doesn't make sense since both would want the utmost secrecy in this transaction. Maybe that's not even him on tape.

One part sends weapons, the other sends fighters with their weapons. No surprises here, its an open SECRET!

so what? He gave them weapons and he supports their cause. At least he is not killing each Lebanese who has balls, and he is not stealing our customs money like other people.

Thumb lebanon_first 29 November 2012, 23:34

I dont think he has access to our tax money. he is not a minister. But if he did use the tax money, it would be well spent money : Bringing down bachar is a good thing. The Assads are the single factor that caused the most harm to Lebanon for the past 40 years. More so than Israel, more so than the palestinians, more so than Iran, Qatar, the USA combined.

Yes. So what, asks cheikh Saad al-Haribi Telteyn al-Marajil, aka lebanon_first while the Syrian flag flutters way higher than that of Lebanon??? After all, Al Mustaqbal al Ta3ees tells us they are not involved in the flow of arms at all! I personally believe them because they are very believable based on their track record. And when they say "arms" they actually mean food and beverages and first-aid kits but say arms only to scare the Syrian regime forces. In any case, I do not believe that the voice in the reocrding was that of Oqab Saqr because that voice was of a man!

Who Cares. People who voted for him will regard him as a Hero. Everyone knows that March 14 are With Opposition and March 8 are with Government. Same as Hizb sending Men to boost army. no need to be shocked :)

The Hezz and Iran are sending troops and weapons there daily. I would like to know the time frame of when this "request" was made.

Either way, true or untrue, the Hezz have had people there for years. I say screw them. Let their benefactor fall. If it is true I am fine with it. It is a way for M14 to hit back indirectly for the way the Hezz made the Leb. gov't fall in a coup. All is fair in love and war. the Hezz don't always get their way nor do they always win. When they fall they will fall hard. This is only the beginning.

Although i share what you feel about the syrian issue, i think we as Lebanese should not interfere in it, and mind our own business as we are already deep enough in shit.
we should concentrate on trying to get out of it

Thumb geha 30 November 2012, 08:30

I agree with trigger.
let Syria solve its issues, and let us focus on ours.
hizbushaitan is our major problem and we need it solved. although I believe the fall of the Syrian regime will be a big blow to hizbushaitan, it will not solve our problem totally.
it is about time we take action to solve this problem internally.

Oh the horror! Sakr is providing light weapons to the unarmed civilians to help defending them selves and fend off the brutal that is torturing killing and raping his people.

Lets all give a hand to FlameThrower, this justifies Hizbullah's stand of enforcing this brutal regime indiscriminate hand. Shame on Sakr, he should've allowed this dicator to massacre his people without resistence! Shame on Sakr what a horrible neighbour he is to the syrians! TFEH!!

Who cares if this is a true recording (and I hope it is). Arm FSA and destroy assad and hezbollah. Don't comment if you have nothing new to say. I've heard it all, so sick and tired of the hypocrisy on these forums. At least say, yes I know hezbollah is in syria helping assad fight this dirty fight - don't give me they are there protecting the Lebanese in syria - freaking joke. The more you try to defend hezbollah and aoun and anyone in m8 the more you sound obtuse and show the difficulty you have in grasping the concept of reality.

The tape was leaked by the ministry of telecom, or the army intel. We all know who's running these mafia organizations. It's been known for months that sakr is playing a role in arming the FSA and bravo 3ale. Finally an M14er with balls!

then dont blame the syrians if they come back to this country if you are already interfering with their business and sending arms to their country.
then all our sissy politicians will be pro Syria as they were before 2005. bunch of crappy politicians in a crappy country where everybody lies to everybody and everybody is waiting for an opportunity to steal and rob everybody.

Missing peace 30 November 2012, 14:29

it is not the fact of being pro syria or not! if syria lives as a neighbor and DOES NOT impose itself over lebanon why should we be against? But a totalitarian regime that has occupied lebanon , built a system of corruption, killed many lebanese, of course one should be against it! except M8 which thank syria for all that...

syrians enjoy life as much as lebanese, same habits, same way of living... syrians are not enemies of lebanon but their regime praised by M8 is...

Yet more proof of the Saudi-Qatari interference into Lebanon and Lebanese politics.

The boycott and stubborn ill advised stalemate can be laid at the doorstep of Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Assad's Syria was suppling during 40 years weapons and terror to each one who wanted to fight, destroy and kill in Lebanon no matter who... putting oil on fire from all sides.
Assad's Syria assassinated civilians and politicians, lebanese Heroes no matter from which side or religion, kidnaped Youth, young man and families Fathers they didn't appear till today...
It is time to have a modern and free Syria, it is time to have all dictators kicked out, it is time to have a one Arabic world where all Arabic people have the right to move, deal and work without restriction.
it is time to have all Arabic country's free of arms and criminals.
