|Syrian army Special Forces are currently deployed in United States to conduct sabotage operations.|
The Russian website Military Review posted information from an anonymous source stating that hundreds of Syrian army special forces soldiers are currently located on the territory of the United States, ready to conduct a series of sabotage operations in case of a military aggression against Syria. They may target the country's infrastructure.

The publication lists potential targets that can be damaged, including railways, power stations, power plants, waterworks, oil and gas terminals, and military objects, mostly air and naval bases. An anonymous source said that the diversion could be implemented in the most densely populated areas and states in order to cause maximum damage to the U.S. economy and infrastructure, simultaneously causing panic among the population.
Attacks against civilians are not planned, the anonymous source at the Ministry of Defense of Syria assured. All fighters grouped in units of three to seven people are employed by the Syrian special forces "al-Qassam" and undergone an extensive training. They are equipped to carry out sabotage operations in the United States
The source said that the Syrian leadership has chosen this strategy based on the experience of the wars in Yugoslavia, Iraq, and Libya, where the aggression was reflected from a defensive position, which doomed these countries to failure.
The Syrian special forces have a very long history, and were created back in 1958. They were trained by Soviet instructors, and later Lebanon specialists of Hezbollah. The Syrian special forces have significant experience of conducting successful operations during the Arab- Israeli conflict.
