Troops from Britain’s Special Air Service (SAS) and Special Boat Service (SBS) alongside paratroopers from the Special Reconnaissance Regiment are operating in Syria giving insurgent assassins training on how to use new weapons and explosives, The Daily Star reported on Sunday.
The newspaper also said that British special forces hope the trained insurgents can assassinate the Syrian President.
Moreover, the British Chief of the Defense Staff, General Sir David Richards, has spoken of contingency plans to deploy British troops to intervene in Syria.
“Obviously we develop contingency plans to look at all these things. It is my job to make sure that these options are continually brushed over to make sure that we can deliver them and they are credible,” Richards told BBC1's Andrew Marr Show.
This comes as videos are emerging, almost on a daily basis, of foreign-backed armed terrorists in Syria killing civilians and executing army soldiers.
This comes as British Prime Minister David Cameron has revealed plans to facilitate supplying of heavy weapons to terrorists in Syria.
Cameron has also expressed frustration over a European Union arms embargo preventing his government from selling such weapons to Syria, and has vowed to find a way around the ban.
