Ansar al-Bukhari has over 5,000 armed personnel, said Hesham Thaer, a Syrian officer in the Free Army. They have received weapons and ammunition from the Syrian regime's army. In addition, Iran has supplied them with missiles, heavy artillery and modern weapons, Thaer added.

Qatar provides the Nusra Front, which calls itself currently Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), with hundreds of millions of dollars. Qatar funds the group as it is considered the regime's military wing in Syria.

Over $1 billion to terrorists as ransom


Qatar was also accused of sending over one billion dollars to terrorists as ransom to free 28 members of its royal family who were kidnapped in Iraq in 2015, as they traveled to Iraq to hunt falcons.
