Swiss Government Investigation Confirms That Swiss-Made Grenades Exported to UAE Were Used by Terrorists in Syria

Sep 22, 2012 - BERN, (SANA) – An investigation conducted by the Swiss government confirmed that Swiss-made hand grenades which were found with armed terrorists groups in Syria had been exported years ago by Switzerland to the Untied Arabs  Emirates which gave some of them to Jordan.

The Swiss government issued a statement that the investigating committee discovered that the UAE delivered some of the aforementioned grenades to Jordan in 2004 to help it "confront terrorism" as per their claims, and that the grenades probably found their way to Syria from Jordan.

The statement didn't mention any intention of taking any step regarding this issue.

The investigation into this matter was launched after photographs were published showing grenades bearing the inscriptions "Offensive OHG92" and "SM 6-03-1" in the possession of terrorist groups in Syria, with the Swiss newspaper Sonntags Zeitung revealing in July that these grenades are OHG92 grenades manufactured by the Swiss company Ruag, and that they weren't exported to Syria directly.

Who's responsible for terrorist attacks and the suffering of the Syrian people ?

Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for Syrian terrorists seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government.  Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the terrorists oust Assad.  C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey. The weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The United States is setting up joint military, intelligence and medical working teams with Israel, Turkey and Jordan.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Britain would step up its support for the armed groups in Syria, providing them with an additional £5 million (US$7.8 million). The money is used for bomb attacks in Syria.
