Syrian intelligence officers conduct major weapons bust in western Hama
Syrian Air Force Intelligence officers raided a major weapons depot in the Al-Ghaab Plains region of western Hama on Thursday, confiscating a large cache of ammunition, tank shells, and anti-aircraft missiles that were destined for jihadist-held territory.
According to a military source in Hama, the AFI officers were given a tip by a local resident regarding the large build-up of weapons at this warehouse in the Al-Ghaab Plains.
The intelligence operation took no more than two hours, as the officers managed to arrest the culprits and seize the entire cache of weapons that were likely destined for northern Hama and Idlib.
This depot was arguably one of the most important sites for the jihadist weapons supply in the Hama Governorate; its break-up resulted in the confiscation of several anti-aircraft missiles.
