This is news whose source is one that has long been reporting on the Syrian war, from a standpoint that Western-sponsored polls have consistently shown to be authentically reflective of the way that the Syrian public view the war in Syria, which is to say, overwhelmingly pro-Assad-government, and anti-American-government. Consequently, the source is excluded from Western ’news’ media. However, I have checked many of the source’s reports and found that, with the exception of a few obviously unitentional and minor and honest errors, the source is reliable, and Western sources are grossly inaccurate. So: here is a summary of that person’s report:
The famous and widely-read news-site on the Syrian war, by Mimi al-Laham, a.k.a “Syrian Girl” (who has said that she aspires to become a future President of Syria — which could happen in the Middle East’s only overwhelmingly secular country, Syria, where she has a large following), presents a video in which is shown in a shallow grave the freshly killed corpse of a jihadist, and his Saudi passport. Nearby also was also shown a terrorist field-hospital for jihadists (perhaps he was buried after the medics couldn’t save him). In that field-hospital were found (at 0:45 on the video) several packages marked “Foliodress cap” which are surgical caps, and the brand marked on them is “Hartmann,” which Ms. Laham confused with Hartmann’s National Gypsum company in Texas, but which is actually a different “Hartmann’s,” headquartered in Heidenheim Germany, and this surgical supply was made by Hartmann’s in India.
It’s possible that the Saudi funders of jihadists buy these surgical caps; however, the Saud family (the sole owners of Saudi Arabia including of Aramco, the world’s largest oil company) are strongly allied with the United States and its NATO alliance, which includes Germany, and they’re all supporting the overthrow of Syria’s current government, because it’s allied with Russia, and because the U.S. and NATO want oil-and-gas pipelines to be built through Syria to supply into Europe from Saudi Arabia and Qatar much of the oil-and-gas that European countries have long been buying from Russia —the world’s leading oil-and-gas exporter. Syria’s importance to the U.S. government is that it’s the crucial pipeline-route by which to supply into Europe in the least-costly way the oil and gas that’s produced by the U.S.-allied pro-jihadist Arab oil monarchies that are the largest purchasers of U.S.-made weaponry and whose chief competitor in the oil-and-gas markets is the U.S. government’s #1 chosen enemy, Russia. It’s a guns-and-oil issue. The Arab monarchs buy U.S. weapons with the money they make selling their oil. Qatar would be supplying the gas, and, like the Sauds who own Saudi Arabia, the Thanis who own Qatar are close allies of the people who control the U.S. government; and both the Sauds and the Thanis fund the tens of thousands of jihadists who come into Syria to tear down and replace the government of the “infidel” Bashar al-Assad, who is staunchly secular: he (like his Ba’athist Party) has always stood for separation of church-and-state. So, for example, the U.S. government blames Shiite Iran — the enemy of those fundamentalist-Sunni Arabic oil-and-gas monarchies — as having been behind the 9/11 attacks.
Another NATO country is involved here: Turkey, which is shown at 0:53 in the video, by a supply bag that’s marked, in English, “Humanitarian Aid … Not for Sale,” and, “From People of Turkey [i.e,, Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan] to People in Syria [i.e., the foreign jihadists who are trying to bring down and replace Syria’s government].”
Also shown in the video are communication-gear, and (at 1:00) equipment that Laham claims “was used to manufacture explosives.” She notes (and shows) “the components used came from Saudi Arabia.” On the packages are printed a Saudi “coat of arms.” She says (and shows the explosives) “large quantities of TNT explosives made here” from those Saudi supplies, plus land mines. “In an interview with Eastern Front General Abu Akmed, armed groups only had primitive mortars and simple hunting rifles, but as of now they possess high quality AK rifles, which the Saudi government bought in the mid-1990s from the [then] integrated Yugoslavia. A GPS navigator was also found, showing the latest route to Homs. … Here is a recently captured drone, its recordings; its recordings were [interpreted] by a team of specialists [who determined that] they were to help oil trucks cross the border to Turkey, then on to European markets [this oil stolen from Syria by ISIS jihadists].” There were also “new uniforms made in Saudi Arabia and Turkey,” which show how “these humanitarian-aid packages end up in the hands of ISIS.”
