ແຕ່ໃນວັນສຸກວານນີ້ ພັກເອກ Ryder ກ່າວວ່າ “ຈາກຂໍ້ມູນໃໝ່ ທີ່ໄດ້ຮັບມານັ້ນ ພວກເຮົາ ຢາກໃຫ້ການຄ້ຳປະກັນວ່າ ໄດ້ມີແຈ້ງໃຫ້ປະຊາຊົນຊາບ ໂດຍໄວເທົ່າທີ່ຈະໄວໄດ້ກ່ຽວກັບ ຄວາມຈິງດັ່ງທີ່ພວກເຮົາຮູ້ຈັກກັນໃນເວລານີ້.”

Members of the U.S.-trained New Syrian Force (NSF) gave the al-Qaida-linked al-Nusra Front six pickup trucks and ammunition that had been supplied by the U.S.-led coalition, Pentagon officials say.

After earlier denying reports that some fighters had handed over gear, the Pentagon said Friday that it had received notification from the NSF unit.

"If accurate, the report of NSF members providing equipment to al-Nusra Front is very concerning and a violation of Syria train-and-equip program guidelines," U.S. Central Command spokesman Colonel Patrick Ryder said Friday.

He said the New Syrian Forces reportedly turned over the trucks and ammunition in exchange for safe passage through an al-Nusra area.

Earlier this week, al-Nusra Front tweeted an image of a Coalition-issued rifle and claimed that the newest NSF members had handed over all their weapons upon re-entering Syria last week.

At the time the Pentagon said the image was an old picture repurposed from the Facebook page of a previously deployed NSF fighter from a different training class.

But Friday, Ryder said, "In light of this new information, we wanted to ensure the public was informed as quickly as possible about the facts as we know them at this time."

Troubled Program

The train-and-equip program has been plagued by problems, according to analysts and U.S. lawmakers, since it was announced last year as part of Washington's strategy to defeat the Islamic State group by using indigenous forces.Congress allocated $500 million with the aim of training as many as 15,000 ideologically moderate fighters to combat the Islamic State group in Syria.

American lawmakers have fumed at its slow pace, and in July President Barack Obama voiced his frustration with the program, saying, "I have made it clear to my team that we will do more to train and equip the moderate opposition in Syria."

In July, al-Nusra abducted a commander and seven fighters from the program's first graduates just days after they deployed in Syria, following training in Turkey.The unraveling of the first contingent prompted an outcry on Capitol Hill, and last week senior administration officials defended the program before skeptical lawmakers.

General Lloyd Austin, chief of U.S. Central Command, told the Senate Armed Services Committee no more than five U.S.-trained Syrian fighters were left from the initial graduates.He acknowledged the program may be overhauled.

Syrian rebel commanders, who have been loath to volunteer men for the program, say the two biggest problems with the mission are how tightly Washington defines "moderate" and the Obama administration's insistence the train-and-equip force can only be used against Islamic State extremists and not against the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad.

The rebel fighters say Assad is responsible for many more deaths in Syria than the jihadists."I told them from the start I wouldn't offer one man as long as the force was only going after Daesh," a rebel commander using the Arab acronym for IS told VOA.He said he could see no purpose in weakening his forces, who are mainly fighting Assad's army, to take on the Islamic State group.

The al-Nusra Front, a rival to the Islamic State group, has targeted U.S.-backed rebels in Syria.Last year, it routed two rebel militias, the Syria Revolutionaries Front and the Hazzm Movement.
