Official: Attacks against Syrian Army Led from Jordan, Israel

TEHRAN Secretary of the Syrian Parliament Khalid al-Aboud said attacks against the Syrian army are masterminded in Jordan and Israel, amid increased terrorist attacks against the country's Armed Forces in Dara'a province.

Al-Aboud was quoted by the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen news channel as saying on Sunday that the terrorist groups which recently attacked the Syrian army forces in Dara'a province are those which have contacts with the Military Operations Command (MOC) room and take orders from Jordan and Israeli intelligence agency.

He added that the aggressive acts of these grouplets are not limited to the Syrian army forces as they have attacked the Russian forces and civilians and set fire at thousands of hectares of farmlands too.

Al-Aboud said based on intelligence, MOC has turned into a new center which intends to use the attacks against the Syrian government and insecurities in Southern Syria as a leverage to pressure Damascus.

The security outposts and military vehicles of the Syrian army have recently come under attack a year after the army won control over the province and granted amnesty to those militants who laid down their weapons.

Relevant reports said earlier this month that the US forces resumed training of Washington-backed terrorists in al-Tanf region near the borders with Jordan after a one-year halt.

Turkey's Anadolu news agency quoted informed sources as saying on Thursday that Jeish al-Maqawir terrorists affiliated to the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA) were again being trained by the US forces.

They added that the trainings were underway in al-Tanf base in the bordering triangle between Syria, Jordan and Iraq and some bases in Jordan, noting that the FSA militants undergo special trainings, including heliborne and combat operations as well as battle in hard conditions.

The sources also said that a number of US army and intelligence officers along with a number of US-led coalition advisors supervise these trainings.

Meantime, the US forces in al-Tanf region had paved the ground for recruiting more militants for Jeish al-Maqawir terrorist group.

A prominent Russian military analyst revealed last year that the US was training terrorists in 19 military bases in Syria in pursuit of its military and political objectives in the country.
