US Special Forces Training Syrian Opposition to Call in Airstrikes

US Special Forces are vetting opposition group leaders in Syria and training them on how to call in precision airstrikes, US Special Envoy for the Counter-Islamic State Coalition Brett McGurk said in a congressional testimony on Tuesday.

“What we [United States] are doing now is identifying those groups [in Syria] that are vetted,” McGurk stated. “We work with [them] on the ground… to call in precision airstrikes.”
