Sunday Express: British special forces are training militants in Syria

SANA — The British newspaper Sunday Express revealed that former soldiers from the SAS of the British Special Forces are training Syrian terrorist groups “in Iraq in military tactics, weapons handling and communications systems”.

According to a British Army source, the newspaper said in an article published on Sunday that ” More than 300 have passed through a base just inside the Iraq border, while a command course is run in Saudi Arabia.”

The article added that “Groups of 50 rebels at a time are being trained by two private security firms employing former Special Forces personnel.”

“Our role is purely instructional teaching tactics, techniques and procedures,” the newspaper quoted a former SAS member as saying.

“If we can teach them how to take cover, to shoot and avoid being spotted by snipers it will hopefully help,” he added.
