US Plans to Train Syrian Rebel Against ISIS

United States, US, military officials are considering raising a Syrian rebel force for the war aimed at destroying ISIS without involving US soldiers and marines to another Middle East ground war.

Although once selected for the training, the rebels will be led by Michael Nagata, special operations veteran but no decision has been made as to who will lead the programme according to Elissa Smith, Pentagon spokeswoman.

The pentagon which hopes to field an initial force of nearly 5,000 to fight ISIS out of its Syrian strongholds, has yet to determine which fighters amid Syria’s panoply of mostly Islamist rebel groups are eligible to receive US cash, heavy weaponry and Nagata’s expertise.
