Authorities made the find in villages and towns in the Damascus countryside and Quneitra region in Syria’s Golan Heights, areas recently freed from a motley collection of militants and terrorist groups

The weapons, ammunition and medical equipment, most of them said to be US and British-made, were found in local villages thanks to cooperation between authorities and local national reconciliation committees in Jibat al-Khashab, Quneitra province and Beit Jin, Rif Dimashq province, the Syrian Arab News Agency has reported.

Photos and a video of the equipment show stocks including US-made sniper rifles, TOW rockets, US-made anti-armor shells, as well as machine guns, anti-aircraft installations, crates of bullets for heavy machineguns, mortar shells, telecommunications equipment, and a wide variety of imported medical and lab equipment, from electrocardiography machines to tools for a dental clinic.

The Syrian military completed the liberation of East Ghouta in Rif Dimashq province this spring, and regained control over the provinces of Quneitra, Daraa and Suwayda in the summer, thanks in part to diplomatic efforts by the Russian Reconciliation Center to persuade militants to put down their arms and either relocate to the terrorist-held province of Idlib or join the fight against Daesh* and other terrorist groups.

As they continued their advance, Syrian troops have been finding vast stocks of weapons made in the USFrancethe UK and Israel.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
