Report: Al-Qaeda Using CIA-Supplied TOW Anti-Tank Missiles in Northern Syria

Earlier this month I reported here at PJ Media that U.S.-backed Syrian rebel groups were allying with Jabhat al-Nusra, Al-Qaeda's official affiliate in Syria, in the south, while others were surrendering their weapons to the terror group in the north.

Now a report by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights indicates that Jabhat al-Nusra is using TOW anti-tank missiles, which had previously been supplied by the CIA to "vetted moderates" groups, in an assault on a Syrian army position in the north (HT: Zaid Benjamin):

Idlib province: No less than 15 soldiers in regime forces were killed by an attack by Jabhat al-Nusra and Islamic fighters on their bastions in Wadi al-Deif and al-Hamdia camps, while no less than 8 fighters from the other side were killed during the clashes in the area, Jabhat al-Nusra and Islamic battalions have taken over the checkpoints of ” al-Za’lan, al-Raii, al-Rab’an ” around the camps. Jabhat al-Nusra devastated a tank for regime forces around Wadi al-Deif camp with an American Tao [sic] missile.

A report last month indicated that the Syrian Revolutionaries Front and Harakat Hazm -- both U.S.-backed and supplied by the CIA with TOW missiles -- had surrendered or abandoned their weapons to Jabhat al-Nusra.
