Report: Israeli, US, Jordanian Commandos Operating in Syria

American, Israeli and Jordanian commandos are currently deployed on the ground in Syria, training and operating alongside the rebels trying to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, the French daily Le Figaro reported on Saturday. The report has not been corroborated by any official American, Israeli or Jordanian source.

The newspaper said that according to its sources, the joint operation, led by the CIA, began on Aug. 17, when the commandos joined some 300 Syrian rebels near the southwestern city of Deraa, just north of Syria’s border with Jordan. A second group of commandos reportedly crossed into Syria two days later, en route to training camps set up by the Free Syrian Army near the Jordanian-Syrian border.

According to military sources quoted by Le Figaro, the U.S. is very reluctant to send ground troops to Syria and is also hesitant about arming the rebels, as some groups are affiliated with radical Islamists, and would prefer to train opposition fighters to hold their own.

French experts quoted by the newspaper said that Washington was interested in created a buffer zone in Syria, free of Assad’s forces, while also enforcing a no-fly zone over Syria, which would give the Free Syrian Army an advantage in their efforts to remove Assad from power.

    Baka_62 RenieriArts Like Libya, they’ve been in for ages. Rebels have been trained from the start in Turkey by US/UK/French/Israeli forces

  2. Baka_62 says:

    georgieboy_74 RenieriArts The special forces are always the first to go in. Rebels were learned how to deal with chem. weapons by the west

  3. georgieboy_74 says:

    Baka_62 RenieriArts Yeah. I love how “we” in the “West” don’t realise what our special forces do. Look at the deification of the SAS in UK

    The Free Syrian Army is the Muslim Brotherhood. You help them, you get Egypt all over again.

  7. Yechiel Baum says:

    Israel is not there. They are on ISrael's side of the border to watch no more bombs thrown from Syria. Do not mistake the ten old Jewish men living in Syria as the Israeli army although they have more brains.
