Syrian government forces have discovered US-made weapons as well as a considerable amount of Israeli-made medicine and medical supplies from a position of foreign-sponsored Takfiri militants in the country’s southwestern province of Dara’a.
An informed source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Syria’s official news agency SANA that security forces had carried out a clean-up operation on Saturday, and found a big weapons depot left behind by members of the Daesh and Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, Takfiri terrorist groups.
The source added that the ammunition included American BGM-71 TOW anti-tank missiles, assault rifles, mortars, satellite communications devices besides medical equipment.
The discovery came less than a week after Syrian army troopers discovered a remote-controlled unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) along with a considerable amount of munitions at a former militant stronghold in the Dara’a al-Balad area of Dara’a province.
SANA reported that the weapons included PK general-purpose machine guns, assault rifles, rocket launchers, many shells, rocket-propelled grenades, thermal night vision cameras and satellite communication devices.
On December 11, Syrian government forces discovered considerable amounts of munitions, as well as US-built anti-tank missiles at weapons depots of Takfiri terrorist groups near Nasib village, which lies about 12 kilometers southeast of Dara’a.
The munitions included 14.5mm heavy machine guns, mortars, tank shells, American BGM-71 TOW anti-tank missiles, rocket-propelled grenades, improvised explosive devices, detonators, automatic assault rifles as well as infantry combat vehicles.
Syrian army forces inflict losses on Takfiri militants in Hama
Separately, the Syrian army launched a salvo of artillery rounds and surface-to-surface missiles at the positions of the so-called Jaysh al-Izza (Army of Glory) militant group in Hasraya town of the west-central province of Hama, killing and wound a large number of the Takfiris in the process.
Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. The Syrian government says the Israeli regime and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri terrorist groups wreaking havoc in the country.
