The Damascus Army discovered several caches of arms and military equipment, which also contained US and Israeli missiles, during cleansing operations in Southern Syria.

A military source said on Friday that the underground arms depots were found by the engineering units of the Syrian army.

“They belonged to the terrorists stationed in Southern Syria a few months ago,” he added.

Meantime, the Syrian army continued its military advances in other parts of Syria over past 24 hours.

Tens of terrorists were killed and dozens more were injured during the Syrian army’s operations in provinces across Syria.

Damascus-Quneitra

The Syrian army discovered several caches of arms and military equipment, which also contained US and Israeli missiles, during cleansing operations in Southern Syria.

The Syrian army forces launched heavy artillery strikes against the positions and moves of Tahrir al-Sham in the towns of al-Sharia’h and Tal al-Sakhar on Friday in response to the terrorists’ attacks against military areas.
