MOSCOW (Sputnik) - American instructors have been training Islamist militants at a US military base in northeastern Syria, Syrian state media SANA reported.
The news agency said there were a dozen of captured fighters of the Daesh* group among the trainees at the base’s prison camp in Ash Shaddadi in Hasakah province.
Local sources told SANA that the militants will be deployed to the desert near the city of Palmyra in neighbouring Deir ez-Zor province, from where they will launch attacks on military and civilian assets.
