Syrian Rebels Accuse Assad of Deals with Israel

Syrian rebels have begun to show their colors with anti-Israel accusations claiming a clandestine deal between President Bashar al-Assad and the Jewish State and kidnapping United Nations peacekeeping forces.

Businessman Piras Tlass, a member of the opposition, told the Al Arabiya television news network this week that the office of President Bashar al-Assad had arranged secret deals with Israel, among them a direct delivery of Syrian crude oil to the Jewish State. Tlass claimed Assad agents murdered former Prime Minister Mahmoud Zuabi because he planned to expose the agreements.
