DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:15 P.M.) – Footage has emerged from the Al-Tanf border region of southeastern Homs depicting US military advisors training Syrian rebel militants on how to use American-produced guided TOW anti-tank missiles.

Although Al-Masdar News was unable to verify when the video below was recorded, the footage was nevertheless released by Jaish Maghawir Tahwra (US-backed Free Syrian Army group) last week in what it said was preparations for an upcoming desert offensive against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA):

This summer, the SAA completely cutoff FSA-held lands from their territorial border with the Islamic State. Ever since, persistent rumours have suggested that the US-led coalition plans to leave the strategic region that notably borders both Iraq and Jordan.

While the SAA is slowly and systematically chipping away at the FSA’s pocket in southern Syria, US soldiers still refuse to withdraw from southern Syria although a large-scale evacuation is expected to happen before the end of the year.

A map of the aforementioned region can be found here.

Not the same region and same groups. In fact, although there were limited clashes, these groups in Southern Syria were hired and trained under a contract saying they shall not engage in fights against SAA, it was also the case of ill-fated “New Syrian Army”. They are supposed to be locals willing to liquidate ISIS from the area. I’m ready to bet that even the CIA or the GRU are not always too sure about who is who! I could even spot some (very few) groups having at the same time US and Russian backing or US and SAA backing(!).… Read more »

The consistency and integrity of U.S. involvement in the Syrian conflict can be likened to that of a rabid and braindead wild warthog. Such an embarrassment to any clear thinking American citizen.

The same Tow Anti Tank Guided missiles given so freely around as Christmas candy to rebels will be soon be sold by these rebels to anyone who will offer a bigger price and used against the same US in another conflict else where. (Chinese are looking at advanced technology too, they took the Osama’s attack chopper which had stealth technology :)) US military hardware is so freely available in Syria now without any accountability to who got what and who is using what & where? The FSA rebels are fighting a losing battle. The Americans will very soon leave Syria… Read more »
