A new video has emerged showing the so-called New Syrian Army in action, kitted out with American weapons and equipment.  The train and equip program is a funded and run under the auspices of the CIA but the actual military training which the New Syrian Army receives is conducted by US Special Operations personnel.  The New Syrian Army consists mostly of former Assad regime soldiers who fled the battlefield or defected, eventually getting smuggled out of Syria and into Turkey to receive military training.

The video demonstrates that the New Syrian Army has not only American weapons such as M16s, M249 Squad Automatic Weapons, 60mm and 81mm mortar systems, M240B and M2HB .50 caliber machine guns, but also that they have received training which is aligned with US military infantry doctrine.  This can be seen clearly by the manner in which they clear rooms (points of domination method) and how they move tactically from building to building.  As noted in a previous article, US Special Forces has a tendency to graph Army military doctrine on top of any and all foreign forces which they train.  Also shown are crates of American supplied munitions.
