BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 A.M.) – Syrian Air Force Intelligence agents confiscated a large amount of weapons destined for the Damascene suburb of Barzeh on Sunday, a military source told Al-Masdar News.
The intelligence agents reportedly seized a large cache of RPG-29 rounds and US-manufactured anti-tank TOW missiles that were supposed to be delivered to the Saudi-backed “Jaysh Al-Islam” (Army of Islam) group in Barzeh.
According to a military source in Damascus, the Islamist rebels are lacking anti-tank missiles in the East Ghouta region; this is one of the reasons why they took a risk in attempting to smuggle guided missiles on Sunday.
The military source added that Sunday’s seizure of these missiles is good indication of Jaysh Al-Islam’s desperation in the East Ghouta.
