 SAM-7 Missiles in the Hands of Syrian Armed Groups


Damascus, Sep 14 (Prensa Latina) The supply of SAM-7 missiles to Syrian armed groups from the Libyan territory, with the complicity of Turkey, was denounced by the British The Times daily.

   The Times quoted a report of Syrian SANA news agency denouncing the arrival in Turkey of a ship from Libya carrying 400 tons of military supplies which were already given to armed groups in the Syrian territory.

 The shipment includes SAM-7 missiles and RPG rocket launchers, among other military supplies, which according to a member of the Syrian Free Army quoted by the daily is the biggest shipment so far.

 According to SNA, the ship named "Victory" is anchored at Iskenderun harbor and its captain Omar Musab is from the Libyan city of Benghazi, where he leads a group called Libyan National Council of Relief, and is in charge of transferring supplies to armed groups in Syria.

 The Times quoted Musab as saying that Syria opposition groups have now more weapons than they need.
