Representatives of some of Syria's leading pro-government tribes Friday rejected support from Jordan's King Abdullah II against ISIS, accusing him of backing "terrorists".While the pledge was welcomed by some tribes in Iraq, the comments were received differently in Syria, where the government accuses Amman of backing rebels fighting to oust President Bashar al-Assad.Jordan is hosting a U.S.-run program to train Syrian rebels to fight against ISIS and is reportedly a key backer of rebels who have made several gains against the government in southern Syria recently.Syria is home to around 20 major tribes, some of which have members in Iraq and Jordan.
