Report: Hamas Training Syrian Rebels


The military arm of Hamas, former ally of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, is training members of the Free Syrian Army east of Damascus, according to a Friday report by the Times of London.

Diplomatic sources told the newspaper that Azzadin Al-Kassam terrorists are training rebel units in the neighborhoods they hold. The development confirms that Hamas has taken the final step in breaking with its Syrian host and ally, and has passed to the sponsorship of Qatar, which is giving financial and logistical backing to a number of rebel groups.
