Report: American and Israeli troops in Syria

A report in Le Figaro, France's second largest daily, places US, Israeli and Jordanian troops in Syria, along with CIA agents.
From Le Figaro, google translated:
According to our information, the regime's opponents, supervised by Jordanian, Israeli and American commandos moving towards Damascus since mid-August. This attack could explain the possible use of the Syrian president to chemical weapons.

According to information obtained by Le Figaro , the first trained in guerrilla warfare by the Americans in Jordan Syrian troops reportedly entered into action since mid-August in southern Syria, in the region of Deraa. A first group of 300 men, probably supported by Israeli and Jordanian commandos, as well as men of the CIA, had crossed the border on August 17. A second would have joined the 19. According to military sources, the Americans, who do not want to put troops on the Syrian soil or arming rebels in part controlled by radical Islamists form quietly for several months in a training camp set up at the border Jordanian- Syrian fighters ASL, the Free Syrian Army, handpicked.


According to this expert on the region, the idea proposed by Washington would be the possible establishment of a buffer zone from the south of Syria, or even a no-fly zone, which would cause opponents safely until the balance of power changes. This is the reason why the United States has deployed Patriot batteries and F16 in late June Jordan.

I have no doubt that Israeli troops are in Syria - in fact, we were told that months ago.  But I doubt that the goal is a no-fly zone. I would bet that the goals are to undermine both Assad and the Islamist elements among the rebels (may not be the American goals, but definitely the Israeli ones) and to provide as much humanitarian aid as possible.

What could go wrong?
