Gov’t Forces Discover Israeli Arms at ISIL Positions in Eastern Syria
The Arabic-language Elam al-Harbi quoted a commander of the army as saying that the Syrian army soldiers discovered a large volume of heavy and semi-heavy arms and ammunition, a part of them made in Israel, while carrying out mop-up operation in regions that were under terrorists’ occupation in the newly-freed town of al-Mayadeen.
“The army had also previously found Israeli weapons at captured ISIL positions several time,” the sources said, adding that the last case was a couple of days ago when the army men discovered different weapons, including Israeli cannons, a large number of bullets and telecommunication systems in Jubb al-Jarah region in Eastern Homs.
Field sources said on Monday that a large volume of arms and munitions was seized by the army men while carrying out mop-up operation across regions that were previously under terrorists’ occupation in the provinces of Hama and Homs.
The sources said that the seized arms and ammunitions were mainly made in Israel.
The Syrian state news agency reported in May that the army’s engineering units found a large number of B10, US-made (light anti-tank weapon) LAW, Cobra, Katyusha and RPG missiles and rockets in their cleansing operation in one of the positons of the terrorists in al-Wa’er district North-West of Homs city.
In the meantime, the army men discovered a large volume of Israeli bombs, mortars, missile launchers, protection masks, sniper rifles, binoculars and other munitions in the terrorists’ position in al-Wa’er.
