Dozens of media and intelligence reports, published by Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), and the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN), detailed in numbers the successive American administrations' funding of terrorist organizations; the foremost of which is ISIS,  affirming Washington's involvement in worsening and igniting wars in the region by supporting terrorism in it and spreading chaos.

The report of Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) shows that the US Department of Defense spent more than two billion US dollars on purchasing weapons to supply the terrorist organizations- that it called "moderate opposition" in Syria. Dozens of reports, published by various media outlets in the past years, quoting American sources including the Congress, have stressed that American weapons ended up in the hands of terrorist organizations in Syria. Since August 2014, Washington has led an illegal show-off coalition, claiming to fight "ISIS", which resulted in the expansion of extremist organizations in Syria and Iraq, in addition to massacres wherein thousands of innocent civilians were killed and infrastructure severely damaged.

Moreover, a report by Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) has confirmed that Washington's purchase of weapons, with the aim of delivering them to terrorists, began in September 2015 during the administration of former US President Barack Obama. Until May 2017, the Pentagon had earlier spent more than $ 700 million to buy automated weapons, anti-tank grenade launchers, mortars and ammunition. The report said that, according to the contracts, the armament process is continued, as no less than $ 900 million will be spent by 2022, while additional amounts of $ 600 million have already been allocated- budgeted or requested by President Donald Trump's administration.

The facts and confessions, made by US officials, along with what was revealed by the American media over the past years, have shown that all the programs, designated by Washington to provide support for what the "opposition", are in fact intended to be sent to the terrorist organizations. For instance, the program launched by the CIA, during the era of former president Obama in 2013, on whichhundreds of millions of US dollars had reached the hands of terrorist "Al-Nusra Front" and "ISIS". Consequently, this program was haltedin 2017 after exposing its details in the media.

The United States publicly funded the terrorist organization "White Helmets"  with tens of millions of dollars. It is worth noting that this terrorist organization is organically linked to terrorist "Al-Nusra Front", and evidently is supported by it in preparing and promoting the use of chemical weapons against civilians, as happened in Eastern Ghouta in Damascus countryside several times, and also in areas in Aleppo, with the aim of accusing the Syrian Arab army and the government. 

The White Helmets terrorist organization has received the most recent financial support of five million US dollars from the US State Department several months ago. It’s worth mentioning that the close connection of the White Helmets to the United States and Britain was proven through the obituary, issued by the British Foreign Office, to the White Helmets’sco-founder, former British intelligence officer James Le Mesurier, upon his death.

In addition to the financial and logistical support of military equipment provided by Washington to terrorist organizations in Syria, the United States has had a prominent role in the political coverage of terrorist crimes in the Security Council through submitting several draft resolutions to the UNSC in compliance withwhat it is doing against Syria.

In September 2016, the American army provided direct military support to ISIS terrorist organization, launching aggressive strikes against a unit of the Syrian Arab Army in Jabalal-Tharda in Deir Al-Zor, to enable ISIS terrorists to control it, along with evacuations from battlefields, made by American planes to save ISIS's leaders or to provide them with intelligence.

It is worth mentioning that through its occupation of parts of the lands in northern Syria, the United States is stealing oil and depriving the Syrian people of it. Defyinginternational law, the US President announcedlast December that his country "has put oil in Syria under its control and is now able to do with it as it wishes". Trump was obliged todeclare so after the Russian Defense Ministry had issued documents and photos, revealing Washington’s smuggling of the Syrian oil to other countries under cover of private American military companies and special forces units.

Ironically, Washington describes all the above mentioned as “aiding the Syrian people”, including the illegal blockade imposed withoutthe United Nations’ approval; a blockade that is exercised with the spirit of jungle law that denies the Syrians their right to import energy carriers, food and medicine.

During the current period, and with the Corona pandemic outbreak, the US and its Western allies continue to adhere to the policy of imposing sanctions against the Syrian people, taking a toll on its livelihood, instead of extending a helping hand to confront the deadly pandemic. Such policy adds an extra burden to the Syrian State, especially in light of the destruction and sabotage of the infrastructure, which the international terrorism has caused over the past nine years, especially the health sector.

All these facts undoubtedly prove that all of the US’s lies and allegations, including what was recently presented by James Jeffrey about the so-called “humanitarian support” to the Syrian people, are void, as they are nothing but a continuation of the series of lies and disinformation campaigns, practiced by the United States to target Syria and its people.
