Report: UK Top Generals Reject Cameron's Plan to Send Troops to Syria

TEHRAN (FNA)- The British media on Monday reported feud between Prime Minister David Cameron and army commanders over military intervention in Syria.



Cameron has ordered top military brass to come up with different military options for Syria, including sending troops to that country, the British daily Sun reported.

However, he faces a major battle because the top military commanders are dead set against the idea of sending troops to Syria, the report added.

British Defense Secretary Philip Hammond and Foreign Secretary William Hague are also thought to oppose military intervention, the newspaper added.

It cited a military source as saying that "when one Brigadier heard the news Cameron wanted an armed solution, his response was, 'you and whose Army?'"

"They don't want to get embroiled in another war when they're already stretched beyond capacity," the source added. "They say Syria is a totally different."
