Syrian forces dig up US-made guns in terrorist arms cache near Damascus
Rasa - Syrian security forces have discovered considerable amounts of Western and US-made munitions, including submachine guns, Kalashnikov rifles, rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) and sniper rifles, used by foreign-sponsored Takfiri militants in the country’s southwestern province of Rif Dimashq.

RNA - Syria’s official news agency SANA reported that government troops launched a clean-up operation in the town of Yalda, located on the southern outskirts of Damascus, and uncovered a huge cache of ammunition and explosives carefully hidden inside a plastic water tank at a local farm.

 

The discovery included NATO-standard sniper rifles, a LAW portable anti-tank weapon, thermal and night vision equipment, grenades, improvised explosive devices, multiple RPG launchers, Kalashnikov rifles and Dragunov sniper rifles.

 

Takfiri militants are thought to have hidden the weapons at the farm earlier this year before leaving the area to the troubled northwestern city of Idlib.

 

On May 4, Syrian army soldiers discovered Israeli-made weapons, including chemical warfare, digital equipment and drugs, destined for foreign-sponsored Takfiri militants and Daesh terrorists in the country’s central province of Homs as well as Rif Dimashq province.

 

The Arabic service of Russia’s Sputnik news agency reported that the ammunition and explosives were found in the southern part of Homs, located 162 kilometers (101 miles) north of the capital Damascus. They were meant to be distributed among anti-government extremists groups.

 

Elsewhere in al-Hajar al-Aswad city, located just four kilometers south of Damascus, Syrian soldiers found Israeli-made weapons stashed inside a network of secret underground tunnels.

 

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.
