The Syrian Army troops continued cleansing operations in the Eastern province of Deir Ezzur and seized a large volume of American and Israeli arms and ammunition at ISIL’s captured positions, a field source reported on Monday.

The source said that the army’s engineering units found a large volume of arms, munitions and military equipment, including those made in the US, Israel and NATO or western states, in the regions that were previously under ISIL’s control in Deir Ezzur province.

Hundreds of rockets, a large volume of anti-armored ammunition, NATO-made 150mm cannons with 40 km of range, a number of tanks and armored vehicles were among the seized military hardware in Deir Ezzur.

Brigadier General Hassan Suheil said last month that ISIL’s largest warehouse in the newly-liberated town of al-Mayadeen was seized by the Syrian Army forces, adding that the warehouse contained the latest NATO arms products that were made in the US, Belgium and Britain.

“It will take us at least six days to take out all these trophies left here by the ISIL fighters after their escape. There are a lot of weapons and various foreign made means of communication, “Suhail said.

Al-Mayadeen was a logistics center with a well-organized system of warehouses and workshops, containing small arms and anti-tank weapons, artillery pieces and shells, homemade mines, as well as tanks and armored personnel carriers previously seized by terrorists from the Iraqi army, the commander said.

The Syrian military commander also showed journalists radar equipment, medical devices and a workshop for the production of drones with dozens of ready-made drones used by militants for reconnaissance and targeted bombing.

The bulk of the terrorist arsenal consists of weapons from NATO countries. In particular, a 155-mm howitzer manufactured in Britain was found in the ISIL’s storehouses.
