nsnbc : Following the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 2328 (2016) on the humanitarian situation in Aleppo, Syrian UN Ambassador Dr. Bashar Al-Jaafari named the names of fifteen foreign intelligence agents among the remaining “rebels” in eastern Aleppo; among the Turkish, Qatari, Saudi, US, Jordanian, Israeli and Moroccan citizens.



Syrian UN Ambassador Dr. Bashar Jaafari noted that Syria had agreed to the resolution even though its wording is ambiguous. Al-Jaafari described the resolution as a test of sincerity and good intentions of those who had sponsored the resolution.

Al-Jaafari also underpinned that UNSC resolution 2328 (2016) does not deal with the deployment of additional UN, Red Cross, Red Crescent and other staff but with guaranteeing the safety of those who are in the field while granting them unimpeded access. Al-Jaafari also noted that Syria has gone to great length and lost a considerable number of troops in efforts aimed at protecting UN, Rec Cross, Red Crescent and other staff.

The Syrian UN Ambassador noted that the true reason for the sudden “urgency” to pass the resolution was based on the fact that all of the city of Aleppo soon would be cleared of “rebels”, and that governments of certain countries were concerned about intelligence officers they had deployed among the “rebels”. Underpinning that Syria has effective intelligence services, Dr. Al-Jaafari named the names of fifteen of these intelligence officers, namely:

Mutaz Kanoğlu – Turkey, David Scott Winer – USA, David Shlomo Aram – IsraelMuhamad Tamimi – Qatar, Muhamad Ahmad Assabian – Saudi, Abd-el-Menham Fahd al Harij – Saudi, Islam Salam Ezzahran Al Hajlan – Saudi, Ahmed Ben Naoufel Al Darij – Saudi, Muhamad Hassan Al Sabihi – Saudi, Hamad Fahad Al Dousri – Saudi, Amjad Qassem Al Tiraoui – Jordan, Qassem Saad Al Shamry – Saudi, Ayman Qassem Al Thahalbi – Saudi, Mohamed Ech-Chafihi El Idrissi – Moroccan.

Answering journalists’ questions about how Syria would prove that these persons were indeed intelligence officers and in Aleppo, Al-Jaafari replied that they will be captured “and then we’ll show them to you.”
