New revelations about militants fighting against the Syrian government suggest that a majority of insurgents involved in armed operations in Syria are foreigners.

Jacques Beres, the co-founder of Doctors without Borders, who recently treated insurgents in Aleppo, revealed that 60% of armed rebels he treated during his two-week stay in Aleppo city were non-Syrian.

“Some of the insurgents directly said they were not very much interested about the falling of Syrian Government and leadership.

They said that they’re thinking ahead that to take the power to become an Islamic state with the Sharia… Some of them were also French,” the French doctor said.

His accounts confirm statements by Damascus that foreign insurgents are also fighting against the Syrian army.

A large number of these foreign nationals have been killed or arrested in clashes with the Syrian Arab Army forces.

Analysts believe the militants do not hesitate to commit inhumane crimes, because they have nothing to lose by destroying Syria.

Every foreigner in Syria raises the gun is a potential enemy of Syria!
Syria belongs exclusively to his people, and no nation has the right to represent their interests at the expense of the Syrian people!
Syria is a cornerstone of the future world development. Here is to decide whether there will be free and independent states or just more repressed states with subservient governments.
Therefore, the struggle of the Arab Syrian Army is not only a struggle for the independence of Syria, but also a struggle for democracy and against oligarchy!
