Obama’s $500 million plan to combat Bashar Al-Assad and ISIS forces just took a major nose dive. These so-called moderate rebels that we trained in Turkey just gave up all their weapons, ammo, and a couple of trucks to Al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra!

TELEGRAPH – Pentagon-trained rebels in Syria are reported to have betrayed their American backers and handed their weapons over to al-Qaeda in Syria immediately after re-entering the country.

Fighters with Division 30, the “moderate” rebel division favoured by the United States, surrendered to the al-Qaeda-affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra, a raft of sources claimed on Monday night.

Division 30 was the first faction whose fighters graduated from a US-led training programme in Turkey which aims to forge a force on the ground in Syria to fight against Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil).

A statement on Twitter by a man calling himself Abu Fahd al-Tunisi, a member of al-Qaeda’s local affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra, read: “A strong slap for America… the new group from Division 30 that entered yesterday hands over all of its weapons to Jabhat al-Nusra after being granted safe passage.

“They handed over a very large amount of ammunition and medium weaponry and a number of pick-ups.”

Walid Shoebat reported on the relationship between Obama’s ‘army’ and al-Nusra a few weeks ago, where Division 30 called on al-Nusra, their brothers, to stop kidnapping their people and honor their previous unity agreement.

So this really is no surprise. They are all radical jihadis working to oust Assad and Obama has been lying to us calling them ‘moderate rebels’.
