Weapons and ammunitions from Central Intelligence Agency for Syrian rebels are now available in black market and open to smugglers. According to American officials,weapons shipped into Jordan by the Central Intelligence Agency and Saudi Arabia intended for Syrian rebels have been systematically stolen by Jordanian intelligence operatives and sold to arms merchants on the black market.The theft and resale of the arms — including Kalashnikov assault rifles, mortars and rocket-propelled grenades — have led to a flood of new weapons available on the black arms market
Syrian rabbles were supplied these weapons by C.I.A.(Civilian foreign intelligence service of the U.S. Government) and Saudi Arabia to fight against Assad. Till now C.I.A. has supplied millions of dollars worth of weapons with the support of Jordanian Intelligence Operatives which also includes training them under the code name Timber Sycamore.This training program is based in Jordan because of the country’s proximity to the Syrian battlefields. C.I.A. has trained thousands of rebels in the past three years, and that the fighters made substantial advances on the battlefield against Syrian government forces until Russian military forces launched last year in support of Mr. Assad compelled them to retreat
From the beginning, the C.I.A. and the Arab intelligence agencies relied on Jordanian security services to transport the weapons.The existence of the weapons theft, which ended only a month ago after complain by the American and Saudi Arabian governments, is being reported for the first time after investigation from Al Jazeera and The New York Times. After these complain investigators at the General Intelligence Directorate (G.I.D.) arrested several dozen officers involved after which they were ultimately released from detention and fired from the service. These Jordanian officers who were part of the scheme reaped a windfall from the weapons sales, using the money to buy expensive SUVs, iPhones and other luxury items.
As earlier these weapons were used in Syrian battlefields.It is unclear that whom these weapons were sold to however according to Intelligence Agencies they were supplied disparate collection of groups, including criminal networks to build their own arsenals. .
