Report: US sent task force to help Jordan handle Syria crisis

The United States military has secretly sent a task force of more than 150 planners and other specialists to Jordan to help the armed forces there handle a flood of Syrian refugees, prepare for the possibility that Syria will lose control of its chemical weapons and be positioned should the turmoil in Syria expand into a wider conflict.


According to the New York Times, the task force is based at a Jordanian military training center built into an old rock quarry north of Amman and is focused on helping Jordanians handle the estimated 180,000 Syrian refugees who have crossed the border. (Ynet)
