The army said the arms cargo contained various types of weapons, including 23mm machineguns and their ammunition, adding that both convoys were fully damaged and at least 22 terrorists were killed in the operation.
“The Syrian army and popular forces also fended off the ISIS attacks in al-Baqaliyeh, the oil-rich areas, depot of ammunition, Forat al-Sham Hotel, al-Ruwad trench and Basel al-Assad water-pumping station in the Eastern province, and killed or wounded many terrorists,” the army added.
