Al Qaeda says it attacked Syrian convoy

Al Qaeda is claiming responsibility for the destruction of a Syrian Army convoy in western Iraq last week that killed some 48 Syrians and nine Iraqi soldiers.

The militant group released a statement on jihadist forums Monday.

The group claims it intercepted the convoy while the Syrian troops were on their way to camps secretly provided by the Iraqi government.

    Lets send them more arms. We are already training them (rebels?) in Jordan.
    Taliban, Al-Qaeda. We don't mind partnership with either whenever it suits us.
