BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 A.M.) – The Syrian military seized a large cache of weapons this week while combing through the Daraa and Al-Quneitra governorates of southern Syria.
According to a military communique from southern Syria, the Syrian military seized a weapons cache that on belonged to the jihadist rebels that controlled these parts of Al-Quneitra and Daraa.
Among the weapons seized by the Syrian military in southern Syria earlier this week were US-made anti-tank TOW missiles, ammunition boxes, mortars, and assault rifles
This is not the first time US-made weapons have been discovered in the former militant hideouts. In February, a stash of US and Israeli-made weapons was discovered near Damascus.
The Syrian military has been relatively busy in southern Syria since their victory over the jihadists and rebels last Summer.
Free Syrian Army (FSA) sleeper cells have been wreaking havoc on the Syrian Arab Army troops in both the Daraa and Al-Quneitra governorates; this has prompted the latter to send reinforcements to the targeted areas.
Last week, the Syrian Arab Army threatened the Free Syrian Army sleeper cells with a massive operation that would target their hideouts and eliminate their remaining forces in these governorates of southern Syria.
