US-trained Syria rebels gave ammo, equipment to Qaeda group

Fighters from Al-Qaeda's Syrian affiliate Al-Nusra Front drive in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo on May 26, 2015The Pentagon said a group of US-trained Syrian rebels had handed over ammunition and equipment to Al-Qaeda’s affiliate in the country, the Al-Nusra Front, purportedly in exchange for safe passage. The startling acknowledgement contrasted with earlier Pentagon denials of reports that some fighters had either defected or handed over gear. “Unfortunately, we learned late today that the NSF (New Syrian Forces) unit now says it did in fact provide six pickup trucks and a portion of their ammunition to a suspected Al-Nusra Front (group),” Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis said.
