Former Qatari PM: Four foreign governments, including US, orchestrated Syrian war

An interview going viral across Arabic social media quotes former Qatari Prime Minister Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber al-Thani as claiming that his country, along with Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United States, began shipping weapons to “jihadists” from the very moment that the Syrian civil war erupted in 2011.

According a Syrian economic adviser close to the Assad government in Damascus, this high level “public admission of collusion and coordination between four countries to destabilize an independent state, including possible support for Nusra/al-Qaeda… is aimed at building a case for Damascus “to claim hefty compensation” from those governments.
