DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:00 P.M.) – This morning, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) seized large quantities of ammunition, automatic rifles, anti-tank missiles and IED’s (improvised explosive devices) left behind by jihadist insurgents in east Damascus.

The spoils of war were put on display to a local radio station by Syrian authorities on Wednesday after multiple storage facitilies containing armaments were discovered in Barzeh and Al-Qaboun, two suburbs in east Damascus that were restored under SAA control in late May due to an evacuation deal at the time.

According to Al-Masdar News field correspondent Ibrahim Joudeh, rebel fighters often try to keep their weapons hidden for good before signing evacuation deals with the SAA, hoping to return for battle on a later date to recover the guns.

Following standard procedure, the spoils of war will now be distributed among members of the National Defence Forces (NDF) across the country, looking to stiffen the SAA’s forward defenses.
