The U.S. military program to train and equip Syrian rebels will not be terminated, as some media report. Instead it will be “refocused”, Joinfo.ua reports with the reference to Reuters.
It was said by the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. He also said that training and vetting of Syrian forces would continue. The official did not reveal any detailes.
It should be recalled that earlier Syrian rebels, that participated in the U.S. training program in Turkey, surrendered their vehicles and ammunition to al-Qaeda-linked militants for the safe passage.
