Interview with Obama’s security adviser Lisa Monaco

Published: Updated:

The support that the moderate Syrian opposition will receive from the United States and Arab allies would involve training, equipping and advising, President Barack Obama's homeland security adviser Lisa Monaco told Al Arabiya’s Nadia Bilbassy in Washington Thursday.

Monaco said the trained members of the Syrian opposition would have three missions: “One would be a local security force mission to take and hold ground and to keep at bay and go on offense against ISIL as well as the Assad regime; to also conduct an insurgent mission to take the fight to ISIL; and finally, to conduct specialized counterterrorism operations as well.”
