Senior officers in both the U.S. and U.K. special forces are formulating a plan to jointly address the threat of terrorism around the world, Mirror.co.uk reported Sunday.

Nick Dorman writes the two nations, who are known to have a “special relationship” diplomatically, have worked together closely during the Afghan and Iraq wars by exchanging intelligence as well as tactical strategies.

The British SAS intends to collaborate with U.S. Delta Forces and the Navy SEALs to help tackle the effects of the Syrian civil war, according to the report.

Dorman reports the joint plan is backed by the British Secret Intelligence Service and will be presented to the British armed forces’ top official in the coming weeks.

U.S. and U.K. joint operations could also take place in suspected al-Qaida sites in Yemen and Africa, according to the article.

The Mirror added that SAS and Delta Force have already worked together on ­training missions inside Yemen.
