Pentagon to End Training of Syrian Rebels in Large Groups

Pentagon to End Training of Syrian Rebels in Large GroupsThe Pentagon will revise its struggling program to train large groups of moderate Syrian rebels to fight ISIS and instead focus on equipping and enabling existing rebel groups who have been vetted by the United States, officials said. The struggling training program had been projected to train as many as 5,400 moderate Syrian rebel fighters during its first 12 months. After six months, only 125 rebels from two training classes had completed the training in various countries and returned to Syria where they were targeted by Islamic opposition groups.
