U.S. – Weapons to Armed Groups in Syria


On the 3 June 2016, the Pentagon parachuted weapons to armed groups in Marea.

Washington hopes that these armed groups will drive back ISIL in the province of Rakka.

There are three groups could have benefited from this support, which violates international law :

  • Groups affiliated to the Kurdish People’s Protection Unit (YPG)
  • Turkmen armed groups under the command of Turkish soldiers
  • Arab soldiers, who once belonged to the Syrian Free Army, now under the command of French soldiers

These last two groups had at first fought against the Syrian Arab Republic alongside the Al-Nusra Front (the Syrian branch of Al-Qaida) and Ahrar al-Sham, two groups which have committed crimes against humanity.
