A newspaper in Turkey has published a story that French military advisers are working with Syrian insurgents to fight the country’s government.
The Milliyet wrote, as cited by IRNA, that France has sent its military trainers to Turkey and Lebanon to instruct the so-called Free Syrian Army. This group of rebels is operating out of Turkey and Lebanon, its goals are to wage war against Syria's military and to destabilize the country.
The story also said that the French, British, and Turkish authorities are working in concert with each other to send arms into Syria.
This report comes as an earlier report had exposed that British and French intelligence operatives have been working directly with Syrian dissidents based in a small town in northern Lebanon.
