The Syrian envoy to the Arab League (AL) made this announcement at an emergency meeting at the 22-member body’s headquarters in the Egyptian capital Cairo on Sunday.
Youssef Ahmad said, “They are Israeli made automatic weapons. This is proven and we’ll show it on TV channels,” Syrian state television reported.
“These are the weapons used by the armed opposition to kill the sons of our nation.”
Not one Arab country has condemned Tel Aviv’s role in the internal violence in Syria or censured the killings of members of the Syrian Armed Forces in the unrest, Ahmad noted.
In addition, the envoy called on the Arab nations not to join, what he referred to as, a United States-backed plan to target Syria.
The meeting came amid continued tension in Syria, which has been raging on since mid-March, leaving hundreds of casualties, including members of the security forces.
The Syrian government blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists for the violence.
