"I think we should understand that that war has already started. The rebels are the foot soldiers of the NATO military alliance. They are being armed explicitly under the instructions of the United States and its allies," Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization, Prof. Michel Chossudovsky, told Press TV.
He also added that NATO Special Forces particularly from Britain, France and Qatar are also on the ground training the armed gangs in Syria.
"They are sending weapons to the rebels and when the French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius invokes the article seventh of the United Nations concerning an arms embargo, he should understand that all those violating the article seven are precisely the members of the United Nations Security Council namely the United States, Britain and France," he said.
Chossudovsky noted that the armed gangs are not representatives of the Syrian society.
"They are not opposition forces. They are trained militia and mercenaries. Many of them are not even citizens of Syria," he said.
Syria has been the scene of violence by armed groups since March 2011. The violence has claimed the lives of hundreds of people, including many security forces.
Damascus blames 'outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups' for the unrest, asserting that it is being orchestrated from abroad.
