BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) seized the largest cache of militant explosives to date inside the southwestern region of Syria this week.

According to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), the military seized over eight tonnes of C-4 explosives that were left behind by the rebels inside the Al-Quneitra Governorate of southwest Syria.

The SANA report said the Syrian Army uncovered the C-4 explosives while combing through the Al-Quneitra countryside.

These combing operations by the Syrian Arab Army have uncovered a multitude of caches that were left behind by the jihadists and rebels in the Daraa, Al-Quneitra, and Damascus governorates.

There must be much more since the idea was to keep them hidden for the next ISIS wave prepared by Irsael-USA-NATO.

Over Eight tons intended to be used against Syrian civilians and those same citizens serving in the military. How many more caches will they find?

A nightmare. Imagine children finding any caches.

I wonder whether this is home grown C-4 (e.g. with the recipe from Anarchist cookbook) or foreign supplied C-4 (civilian or military grade).
If the later – it would be interesting to find the traces of its origin.
