BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 P.M.) – A group of gunman belonging to a group called “Mughawer Al-Thourah”, who had been detained near Palmyra, admitted to have received training from the U.S. forces.

It was reported earlier that three gunmen were arrested and transferred to the Syrian city of Palmyra, after their group fell into a minefield.

The detained militants acknowledged that they had been sent on a mission, and had to obtain information about Russian and Iranian targets in Syria.

One of the detainees, Abdullah Al-Mishwat, said in his confessions: “We were taught how to deal with all types of weapons by American trainers. All of the weapons were American-made. I saw American trainers coming for training, but the training process is carried out by Syrians. The Americans are watching from afar, and they supervise on the training process, the training was difficult, and I continued for two or three hours, not less. ”

The gunman held by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) admitted that the group had been trained in the use of American-made weapons, but the group’s participants were sent to carry out on the mission with Russian guns.

Mughawer Al-Thourah is the last group affiliated with the Free Syrian Army (FSA) to have direct U.S. backing in Syria.

They currently control a stretch of desert territory in the Al-Tanf Zone that allows the U.S. to maintain a presence near the Iranian-backed forces in Palmyra.

One cannot even think of Americans want in Syria, anyway it’s the fault of Arabs for backing the Westerners. Think of Iranians, as they become defiant, they are ready to face any nation on earth.

Not Arabs, but treacherous rulers.

What US want in Syria is also wanted by others even if e.g. Russia doesn’t pushes. Syria’s neutrality is the key to regional stability. Pompeo himself stated, in Feb.2019, that USA was ready to support Assad’s presidency

Arabs are not backing westerners. They do their grasshoppers on petrodollars and westerners don’t badly need Mid-East’s oil as they used to 50 years ago. US don’t even need a single drop and wouldn’t the EU be concerned about fracking’s environmental impact, there are huge shale gas basins in France, Germany and Poland

Facing any nation on Earth, well, even Vatican can… Winning needs other capabiities, and it all depends what the campaign is about. If you consider doing a Gaddafi in order to boot the ayatoilets out of power, although I can’t really evaluate their weapons stockpile, I can tell you that the Emirates alone have all the necessary assets needed to finish off the Khamenei regime.
