A foreign-sponsored Syrian insurgent has accused some Arab countries of betraying the self-proclaimed Free Syrian Army (FSA) that is fighting against the Syrian government.
“I wanted to leave a message here to the Arabs, the Arabs who betrayed us. The Arabs said at first they would support the opposition party and the free army, but in the end they retreated,” an FSA member said in footage taken by Reuters on Monday.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011. Damascus says outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists are the driving factor behind the unrest and deadly violence while the opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings.
The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country and accuses Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey of arming the opposition.
