As reported by RIA Novosti on Sunday, the leader of the international terrorist orrganization al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri, has issued a video appeal to the people of Syria and the Muslims of some countries, calling for the overthrow of President Bashar al-Assad. Eight-minute circulation al-Zawahiri was posted on one of the Islamist websites on the Internet.
In his appeal, al-Zawahiri has called on the Syrians not to rely on help of the West or the Arab states in the struggle against President Bashar al-Assad. "Our supporters in Syria (fighting against the government) are not relying on the Western aid, the United States, Turkey or the Arab countries ... Our people in Syria are independent of the League of Arab States and their corrupt governments", al-Zawahiri said, according to RIA Novosti.
Al-Zawahiri has also called on Muslims in Turkey, Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon to support the anti-government rally in Syria.
As recalled by 1RRE.ru, al-Zawahiri became the leader of the terrorist international organization al-Qaeda in June last year after the death of Osama bin Laden.
Al-Zawahiri has got medical education at Cairo University. In the 1970s he headed the terrorist group "Islamic Jihad".
In 1981 he was arrested on suspicion of involvement in the assassination of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat. When he got out of prison, he went to serve as a mercenary in Afghanistan. Interpol issued a warrant for his arrest in 2001. In Egypt he was sentenced in absentia to death.
Recall, the standoff between authorities and opposition is continuing in Syria from March 2011. More than 5,400 people have been killed, according to a UN estimate in January. In late December, the LAS observer mission was sent there to monitor the situation. According to the results of its work, the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the League member countries developed a peace plan providing the resignation of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and holding the country's parliamentary and presidential elections. Damascus has rejected these proposals. After this several Arab countries have reported termination of participation of their representatives in the monitoring mission. January, 28, 2012, its work was completely stopped due to the worsening situation in Syria.
Later, the ambassadors of Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman and the UAE left Syria. Previously, the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Spain and Italy withdrew their diplomatic representatives. Last week, the representatives of Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman and the UAE left the observer mission of the League of Arab States.
Meanwhile, as reported by The Times of India, Washington piled more pressure on Syria.
President Barack Obama's chief of staff, Jacob Lew, said it was only a matter of time before Assad's regime collapsed.
