As the so-called “Syrian revolution” entered its ninth month, the Syrian security managed to arrest a lot of terrorists and to confiscate large amounts of weapons in several provinces, however the weapons continue to appear in the hands of the so-called “peaceful protesters”. We really have a serious problem along our borders, especially those with Lebanon and Turkey.
A friend of mine who works as a security personnel in Idleb province (at the Turkish borders) assured me that the weapons continue to pour into the black market in Syria, and didn’t stop for a day. So with the weapons in reach, many terrorists – who were released by the authorities after the amnesties issued by the president – came back to work…
In the case of Turkey, it is no secret for any one that Turkey harbors and supports several hundreds of Syrian terrorists who call themselves “Free Syrian army”, and Turkey is working day and night to install a government in Syria that would basically contain terrorists from the Muslim brotherhood, not to mention that Istanbul witnessed several meetings of Syrian terrorists ended up with forming the so-called “Syrian National Council”…
Syria has about 822 KM of borders with Turkey; in addition to the very long distance the geographic and demographic nature of the border area accompanied with the corruption in many sectors of the Syrian customs make it nearly impossible to monitor the borders efficiently…

In the case of Lebanon, the current Lebanese government can be considered till now as a friend of Syria, so as the majority of the national Lebanese army in addition to many parties and politicians, however Lebanon harbors many parties that are publicly hostile to Syria such as “Al-Mustakbal” movement (or the future movement) headed by the former Lebanese prime minister “Saad Al-Hariri” and the terrorist Wahhabi party “Al-Tahrir“ in Tripoli in northern Lebanon, the party organized several demonstrations in what they called “in solidarity with the Syrian Muslims“.

Shahhal has his own terrorist organization “Al-Hedayah and Al-Ihsan“, he even has a TV channel called “Sada Al-Islam” (means in Arabic: The echo of Islam)
