"The US intelligence agency will continue mobilizing arms, including anti-tank missiles, in Jordan for three weeks to lay the ground for the assault," The Wall Street Journal reported. "The agency will spend another two weeks on choosing among the militants and training them," the report adds. "The CIA is working with France to move arms obtained by the European countries to Jordan and Saudi Arabia is expected to send shoulder-fired antiaircraft missiles, known as Manpads, to the militants being trained in Syria’s southern neighbor," according to the US daily. "From August, the CIA will coordinate sending hundreds of trained militants into Syria every month as part of the agency’s covert plan authorized by President Barack Obama earlier this month," the paper added.
