Al-Masdar News has obtained several pictures showing what appears to be US and British special forces training Syrian opposition fighters at an undiclosed site in Jordan.

Although Washington denies it officially, the newly leaked photos seem to prove what many western outlets have speculated since 2013.

The militants depicted are supposedly members of the New Syrian Army (NSA) and Jaish Awsoud Al-Sharqiah, two rebel groups which are have been funelled across the border and are locked in tit for tat warfare with ISIS in the desert of eastern Homs.

Last year, Al-Masdar News also revealed the location of a secret US training camp in a Kurdish-held area in northern Syria.

  1. U.S. is perpetually training foreign soldiers around the world for its own agenda. Does Jordan have a hand in the fighting/attacks in Daraa, as I notice it is near the border with Jordan?

    • The US is the worlds biggest empire. And that requires boots on the ground gobalily. p.s. Jordan has been the supply depot for the SFA Southern front and maybe more units. AFAIK The border to Daraa is at least partially closed by Jordan now. And Jordan brokered Southern front participation in the current truce talks. But that was before the Nusra offensive in Daraa city.

    • NySA is only there to fight IS, Southern Front vowed not leading any attack on govt anymore last spring.
      Now we have a special situation in Jordan. MB is very powerful. Abdallah II was very near to ban them, then they threatened to join IS then he backed up.
      Actually, they may take a century but they are determined. Backing up is stupid. Gather serious intel then crush’em once and for good with an iron hand and for any hit you take, hit 100 times. Anything they threaten you of smth if you this or that, do even worst than what they try to deter you from and hit them worst than anything they threaten you to do to you. Actually, you may have to do really dirty things but any way, they understand nothing else than force and any negociation will end exactly like the Udaybiyyah treaty, all is deception. If you pull up the boot you have on their throat just a fraction of second, you’ll end stabbed so, don’t just keep the boot on, crack the neck.
