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.

But that was before the Nusra offensive in Daraa city.

US and its international terrorist alliance must be buried throughout the world. Time to
nuke US and the Jews if necessary.
