Over the recent days, the U.S. has trained a group of 10 terrorists to use anti-armor missiles and anti-aircraft, the sources added, noting that these terrorists will be transferred within a short period to the Badia (desert) of the Deir-ez-Zor province and the Badia of Palmyra to attack posts of the Syrian Arab Army, vital facilities and population gatherings.

Over the past months, several media reports confirmed that U.S. occupation forces transferred hundreds of Daesh terrorists from Iraq and from prisons controlled by the QSD (Syrian Democratic Forces, SDF, editor’s note) militia in Hassakeh to the vicinity of the occupation base in the al-Tanf area on the Syrian-Jordanian border to train and arm them to carry out attacks against the Syrian state and the civilians.
