Unit commander Abu Al Ezz told a German newspaper that militants have been receiving “sophisticated weapons” from their backers to help them succeed against the Syrian government.
He also claimed that when Al-Nusra was “besieged, we had officers from Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Israel and America here… Experts in the use of satellites, rockets, reconnaissance and thermal security cameras.”
Al Ezz continued: “Yes, the US supports the opposition [in Syria], but not directly.
“They support the countries that support us. But we are not yet satisfied with this support.
