The U.S. President Barack Obama reiterated earlier in a statement issued by the White House Washington's commitment to supporting the so-called " the Syrian opposition coalition and the higher military council" as the latter is represented by the armed terrorist groups that exercise acts of killing and destruction against the Syrian people.

A U.S. official said that "the Obama administration has made progress in overcoming lawmakers' objections to its plans to arm Syrian rebels, but some details remain unresolved."

"Members of the Senate Intelligence Committee who questioned the wisdom of arming the insurgents have tentatively agreed the administration can go ahead with its plans, but asked for updates as the covert effort proceeds", a senior administration official told Reuters.

The USA calls the terrorists in Syria "opposition fighters" backed by it along with other Arab and foreign states despite that the Qaeda-linked Jabhat al-Nusra, which is listed by the U.S. Administration in the list of terrorism, represents the main pillar of these terrorist groups.

Reuters quoted congressional aides as saying a "U.S. program to train the rebels that started months ago has also been challenged by a U.S. lawmaker who wants to know more information before another $1.3 million is approved for the project in Turkey."
