The Arabic-language newspaper al-Akhbar reported on Saturday that the infamous Blackwater group, along with other security firms, had returned to Iraq to train jihadist fighters against the government.

According to the report, a source close to the U.S. charge de affairs in Iraq Judy Hood said that Blackwater has transferred the U.S. military equipment from Jordan to Western al-Anbar province in full coordination with Ein al-Assad base, adding that the company is now training the ISIL terrorists in the base.

Meantime, al-Akhbar quoted field sources as saying that trucks carrying ISIL militants, escorted by the US vehicles, were transferred from the town of Baqouz in Deir Ezzur to Ein al-Assad amid clashes in Baqouz.

Al-Akhbar did not specify how they came across this information; however, new reports suggest that the Iraqi Armed Forces  have increased their presence in eastern Syria.

The Iraqi, Syrian, and Iranian governments are now planning to form a joint bank that would help both Syria and Iran to no longer become dependent on other nations in the region.

Most likely True. FSA always worked in Tandem with ISIS, Kurds also worked with ISIS

The frequent use of the word “alledgedly”, signifies a lack of research by this paper. This way MAN is no better than a rag.

No smoke without fire. Strange that ISIS also turned up in Afghanistan where the US has bases and landing strips. They are currently being used to attack the Taliban, threaten Iran, annoy the Russians, and scare the Chinese.

Not since Turkey, Qatar and Iran are the ISIS’ master of puppets! ISIS is Qaeda in Iraq and was founded by Zarqaw who hid in an IRGC base after leaving Afgha and before being smuggled into Iraq by Quds-Force! Iran hid MANY Qaedans, including al-Zawahiri or Hamza bin-Laden. When things started to become hot due to US anti-Qaeda rampage, these were moved elsewhere. And it’s much more stealth to move thousands of roaches by land to Afgha rather than by aircraft : you can’t land a C-17 and have 300 bearded lunatics on an US base without it getting noticed… Read more »

Karel : “The frequent use of the word “alledgedly”, signifies a lack of research by this paper.” => Absolutely. And it’s likely done for crapaganda purposes as most of readers won’t search and so won’t know that Blackwater or others of its daughter companies, no matter their names, have been dismantled for long now, even before the Syrian conflict started!!!! Oh, BTW, al-Akhbar News is Lebanese, is seen as a semi tabloid and perceived as pro-March 8th, a coalition of political parties in Lebanon that includes Hezbollah and the Free Patriotic Movement… On 18 July 2011 the paper together with… Read more »

Since Blackwater no longer exists, I would say that this is just another desperate attempt to pass off ridiculous stories

Still around with all the spin-offs including one with a non-threatening name “Academi”, as if one did “training” there.

Triple Canopy, Academi, Tidewater Global Services, Edinburgh International, Strategic Social, International Development Solutions & Olive Group have been acquired by the Constellis Group which itself was bought by the Apollo Global Management LLC hedge fund in 2016. Xe AKA ACADEMI was dismantled in 2010, starting by Aviation Worldwide Services and daughter companies Presidential Airways and STI Aviation : the about 60 aircraft were sold to AAR Aviation, etc… Constellis distanced itself from the mercenary job, now they’re more into more classic private security like armed dudes on oil-tankers, LNG-carriers, container-ships or even cruise ship which may operate where you can… Read more »
