The Syrian military destroyed ammunition discovered near Damascus after the liberation of the territory from militants, head of the 166th sapper unit Ali Suleyman has stated.
“The territory has a lot of improvised road mines that were planted by terrorists and used against Syrian troops… The majority of these improvised explosive devises were discovered by Syrian sappers on the roads after the territory had been liberated from militants,” Suleyman told reporters.
All explosive devices found in the suburbs of Damascus are being brought to a test range near the city.
Some of them are used to destroy buildings damaged by the war that cannot be restored, he said.
As the armed conflict in Syria seems to be nearing its end and Damascus has regained control over vast territories that were previously controlled by terrorist groups and rebels.
