ZARQAWI has arranged training for terrorists at al-Qaida camps. While he was in Pakistan, ZARQAWI made contact with al-Qaida to train Jordanians. His operatives (called "Jund al-Sham") began to arrive in Afghanistan in large numbers in l999. Some of these operatives trained at al-Qaida's al-Faruq Camp, where they received full support from al-Qaida.
The group is lead by a Palestinian from Tripoli's Nahr El Bared refugee camp who goes by the name of Abu Youssef Sharkieh, a former activist of the late Palestinian terrorist mastermind Abu Nidal's Fatah-Revolutionary Council,
Jund Al Sham's military wing is headed by Imad Yassin, a dropout from Abu Mohjen's Osbat Al Ansar which has long been blacklisted by the United States as a terrorist faction linked to Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida network.
