Last week, the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria said that the US-led coalition had been training militants at the Syrian Al Hasakah refugee camp.

The US-led coalition has told Sputnik that “the idea that the coalition runs a training center for Daesh is absurd.

The statement came after the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria accused the US-led coalition of using the Al Hasakah refugee camp as a base for training militants.

According to the Russian ministry, a new armed group called the “New Syrian Army” is being forged under the supervision of US instructors from the Special Operations Forces. The US instructors allegedly announced that after the end of the training course the groups would be sent to southern Syria to fight against Syrian government troops.

Most of these militants come from Daesh and al-Nusra Front, with currently around 750 fighters from Raqqa, Deir-ez-Zor, Abu Kamal and the eastern territories of the Euphrates.

Previously, the Russian military accused the US of establishing a training camp for militants near Rukban to create a new “moderate opposition,” calling Washington’s move “a war crime,” since it prevented the Syrian government from setting up a safe corridor for the delivery of humanitarian supplies to refugees.
