Alwaght- The Syrian conflict is the world's most costly war in the recent decades mainly because multiple regional and international actors played roles in it. Last week, Syria’s Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said that the Arab countries had disbursed $137 billion to finance illegal armed groups fighting in his country.
The Syrian deputy foreign minister declined to specify by name the countries that support terorists, but Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar were definitely the wealthy Arab countries that funded the war on Damascus.
The Syrian government frequently accused these three parties of bankrolling the armed takfiris on the Syrian soil. But it is not the only verbal accusations that point the figures at the Arab monarchies. There are concrete documents exposing their involvement in a pro-militants campaign of support against the Syrian government.
In 2014, a senior Saudi diplomat revealed to the BBC that the oil-wealthy kingdom intended to deliver modern anti-tank weapons to the Syrian anti-Assad militants, known as Free Syrian Army (FSA), to strengthen them in the face of the Syrian leader and his allies.
