Norway might deploy its troops and speical operation forces in Syria, the government said on June 22, following the authorization of the move by the country’s parliament.
According to reports, Norway is going to send some 60 troops to Jordan this summer. They will train and support “Syrian opposition “fighting the ISIS terrorist group. Most likely, this Syrian opposition is the so-called New Syrian Army.
“Local forces (opposed to IS) are making more progress than we could have expected. It is therefore more on the agenda that coalition forces should be able to train, advise and give operational support on Syrian territory in their battle against IS,” Reuters cites the statement of Norway’s Defense Minister, Ine Eriksen Soereide.
We remember, Norway has already sent 120 soldiers to Iraq to train Iraqi and Kurdish forces that oppose ISIS terrorists.
