The US military says it will begin to train thousands of militants fighting against the ISIL terrorist group in Syria as soon as this week.

American defense officials said 400 US military trainers are ready in Turkey and Jordan to train 3,000 militants.

The officials also noted that some of the trained foreign-backed militants could decide to fight the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The United States will also provide the militants with weapons, trucks and tactical radios for their communication.

Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since March 2011. More than 222,000 people have been killed in the country, the UK-based so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The United States and its regional allies -- especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey -- are supporting the militants operating inside the country.
