Obama 'Admin' Sent Toyota's Not to Syrian 'Moderates', But to Nusra Front - German Media. (SP).
ISIL fighters were reported to use Toyota Hilux pickup trucks during their military operations and attacks.
At the same time, the US recently sent Syrian rebels 43 vehicles of this model, the newspaper wrote.
A US official earlier stated that Toyota Hilux vehicles are "essential to support the moderate opposition forces on the ground," referring to the members of al-Qaeda’s regional branch, Al-Nusra Front. However, the trucks were captured by ISIL and may be used by the militants in future attacks.
From Washington's blog:
Al Nusra Front is literally Al Qaeda.
Public Radio International – an American public radio outlet – also documented a specific shipment of Toyotas by the U.S. State Department in 2014:
Recently, when the US State Department resumed sending non-lethal aid to Syrian rebels, the delivery list included 43 Toyota trucks.
Hiluxes were on the Free Syrian Army’s wish list. Oubai Shahbander, a Washington-based advisor to the Syrian National Coalition, is a fan of the truck.
“Specific equipment like the Toyota Hiluxes are what we refer to as force enablers for the moderate opposition forces on the ground,” he adds. Shahbander says the US-supplied pickups will be delivering troops and supplies into battle. Some of the fleet will even become battlefield weapons.
That’s exactly what happened …Hmmm......Why am i not surprised? They Never met a terrorist they did not like.
