BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:10 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) seized a large amount of weapons that were left behind by the militant groups that controlled parts of northern Aleppo.

In a report released by the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), the state-owned publication said the SAA troops were able to seize this large batch of weapons and ammunition while combing through the areas once controlled by the militant groups in northern Aleppo.

According to a SANA report, the Syrian Army was “combing through the liberated villages in the northern countryside of Aleppo to ensure their safety and the safety of the families returning to their homes.”

They would add that “the competent authorities found weapons and ammunition, including medium machine guns, mortars, machine guns, tank shells, RPGs, propeller grenades, and large quantities of ammunition of various calibres.”

Many of these previously militant-held areas have weapons and explosives that were hidden before these groups departed for the Turkish border region.
