` United States are Finalising Plans to Boost the Training of ` Syrian Rebels ‘ Sending Weapons to Jordan – Reports ‘

#AceWorldNews – UNITED STATES – April 05 – (RT) – US authorities are finalizing a plan to boost the training of Syrian rebels and will send shipments to moderate rebel factions mostly based in Jordan, along Syria’s southern border, according to two US security sources, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity.

The additional supplies will not include surface-to-air missiles, the officials said.

Earlier in March, President Barack Obama considered authorizing a shipment of new air defence systems to rebels.

As RT reported last month, the Obama administration is interested in finding new ways to put pressure on Syrian President Bashar Assad and boost the opposing rebels, who have lost ground in the conflict over the last few months.
