Muslimpress:Based on the latest news the U. S - trained forces have surrendered to Al - Qaeda. The US military has admitted, a group of US-trained Syrian rebels has handed over their vehicles and ammunition to fighters linked to al-Qaeda. It said one rebel unit had surrendered six pick-up trucks and ammunition to the al-Nusra Front this week - apparently to gain safe passage. Congress has approved $500m (£323m) to train and equip about 5,000 rebels to fight against Islamic State militants. But the first 54 graduates were routed by al-Nusra Front, the military said. Gen Lloyd Austin told US lawmakers last week that only "four or five" US-trained rebels were still fighting.
