An American author and historian says the “NATO death squads” were involved in the deadly July 18 bombing in the Syrian capital that targeted senior officials, Press TVreports.

“We see the pro-NATO forces, the NATO death squads delivering on that,” said Dr. Webster Griffin Tarpley, referring to the Wednesday bomb attack on the headquarters of the National Security Bureau in Damascus that killed Syrian Defense Minister Dawoud Rajiha, Deputy Defense Minister Assef Shawkat, and Assistant Vice President Hassan Turkmani.

“I would stress the role of NATO and indeed of the CIA because we know the press today here, the Wall Street Journal reminds us that the CIA is running communications, coordination… for the Free Syrian Army, for the death squads,” Tarpley stated in an interview with Press TV on Wednesday.

Syrian Interior Minister Mohammad Ibrahim al-Sha’ar and National Security Bureau chief Hisham Bikhtiyar were also wounded in the bomb attack.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad appointed General Fahd al-Jassem al-Freij as the new defense minister immediately after the incident.

The terrorist Free Syrian Army (FSA) claimed responsibility for the Wednesday bombing and said the attack was the “first in a series.”

Tarpley also stated that “an operation of this complexity would be very hard for even al-Qaeda fighters to do. They have got to be essentially guided by maybe French or British or US Special Forces officers.”
