Sep 23, 2012 - BAGHDAD, (SANA) - Religious authorities in Iraq issued fatwas forbidding buying or selling weapons across the country, as unknown groups purchased weapons from areas in central and southern Iraq, amid confirmed reports that this campaign is backed by intelligence services of some countries to smuggle the weapons to Syria.

RT television said in a report on Sunday "There have been ample reports in Iraq about an organized campaign by unknown groups to buy Kalashnikovs, guns, PKCs from the locals in central and southern Iraq.'

Iraqi MP Mohamed al-Lakkash said ''There are arms traders in Iraq, and weapons are bought from the locals due to the deteriorating living conditions of people who bear arms, which gave rise to an organized campaign of buying weapons.'

'There is Saudi and Qatari intelligence operating on the Syrian-Iraqi borders who are trying to promote the weapons trade to support the Syrian armed opposition, that's why the citizens have to be cautious not to sell weapons to those who are trying to empty the area of weapons,'' Iraqi MP Abboud Wahid said.

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.
