MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Syrian moderate opposition fighters that will be trained by the UK military specialists will submit information on their activities to the US-led anti-Daesh coalition, a source in the UK Ministry of Defence told Sputnik on Tuesday.
"In terms of after training, they are going to be supported by the [international anti-Daesh] coalition following the training so they will provide information to the coalition," the source said.
According to Tuesday's statement by the Ministry of Defence, the Syrian opposition fighters will be trained in medical, infantry and explosive hazard awareness skills.
The UK announcement comes on the background of the July 2016 decision by the United States to relaunch its $500 million-a-year program meant to train moderate Syrian opposition fighters to defeat Daesh terrorists in Syria and Iraq.
Since 2011, a civil war between government troops and a number of opposition factions and terrorist groups has been ongoing in Syria. The United Kingdom is a part of the US-led coalition that is carrying out airstrikes against Daesh, a terrorist group outlawed in Russia, the United States and other countries.
