BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) discovered a militant base inside the newly captured East Ghouta suburb of Harasta, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported on Wednesday.

According to SANA, inside this Harasta base was a large cache of weapons that once belonged to the militants of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.

The SANA report would add that Israeli-manufactured mines were discovered among the militants weapons.

In addition to discovering this base, the Syrian Army unearthed a large network of tunnels that stretched across the Harasta suburb.

I would suspect that such discoveries of weapons etc will occur for months, even years. The damage to buried infrastructure and buildings caused by tunnelling will be colossal as well.
