The Syrian Army has launched a large-scale military operation in the country’s central province of Hama to clear the area from mines left by Daesh* terrorists earlier this year.

A Daesh weapons cache which included Israeli-made bombs has been discovered by Syrian government troops in the south of Hama province, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

The depot, which was found in the town of Aqrab, also contained assault rifles, pistols, Kalashnikov machine guns, mortar shells and sniper rifles, as well as wireless communication devices.

The detection of the depot came as the Syrian Army’s engineering units cleared Aqrab of booby traps, ammunition and weapons left by Daesh terrorists before Hama was liberated from the militants.

Last week, SANA reported that Syrian sappers working in the province of Daraa discovered storage facilities with French-made APILAS (Armor-Piercing Infantry Light Arm System) anti-tank systems and US-made TOW anti-tank missiles.

Earlier, Syrian government forces reportedly discovered a huge cache of Western-made arms in Daraa which contained weapons and ammo of various calibers, as well as boxes of supplies delivered to Free Syrian Army (FSA) militants by the United States.

The depots were tracked as the Syrian Army launched an offensive in Daraa after its capital and several other cities were shelled by local militants despite an ongoing ceasefire, reached with the help of the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria.

Previously, Abu Shima, head of the information center of the joint operations command of the opposition in the south of Syria, told Sputnik that the leaders of armed groups in Daraa had clinched an agreement  with representatives of Russia “on the immediate cessation of hostilities” in the province.

Israel was the #1 supplier for Iran during the Iran-Iraq war. Zarqawi hid in Iran before being smuggled to Iraq by Quds Force. Hamas is funded by Iran and ISIS/Sinai hides in Hamastan… Meanwhile, Israel is #10 arms builder with 150 nations as clients… How convenient that suddenly just before one of the very last ISS held areas are about to fall, now that strangely EVERYBODY is now understanding how and why Iran created ISIS, some Israeli bombs are found, woaaaaw! Stangely, it’s what Sana says but… Sana also spoke about some alleged forein military counsellors caught in east-Aleppo but… Read more »

Read the CAR (Conflict Armament Research) reports on such matters. US have been warned by EU governments that weapons handed to vetted terrorists will end up in the wild. You are pointing in the wrong direction. Not Iran, the Gulf and the US are responsible.

No surprise. US & co bought weapons all over, handed them to vetted terrorists who sold them on. There are CAR (Conflict Armament Research) reports on the sources of IS weapons. Providing the bare info where some weapons in a cache come from like AMN often does is shoddy journalism. Even I know more.
