Syria opposition living their last days: Glenn


Foreign-backed militants fighting the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad are living their last days, an analyst tells Press TV in an interview.

“I think the Syrian opposition as a whole is basically on its last legs,” Mark Glenn said on Sunday.

“The money and the leadership and the direction that was being provided by the United States and other players, basically has been removed. And this is why we see now the center falling apart,” he added.

However, Glenn stated that the damage inflicted on Syria by militants could not be underestimated.

“Let’s not forget who was responsible for destabilizing Syria for three years now. It has been the very same [so-called] FSA (Free Syrian Army) groups and yet they actually have the nerve to accuse some other rival group of bringing destabilization and violence to Syria,” said the analyst.

Glenn also noted that  is stirring trouble in Syria on behalf of the Israeli regime.

“Saudi Arabia of course is the indispensable link in all of this. Israel cannot directly fund and train these groups. They have to have a middleman to do it. Saudi Arabia obviously is furious over the developments that are taking place in Syria,” he added.

On Saturday, 36 al-Qaeda-affiliated militants were reported to have been killed in clashes with a newly formed militant group in Syria.

Syria has been gripped by deadly crisis since 2011. According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies – especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey – are supporting the militants operating inside the country.
