DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:25 P.M.) – Rebel factions of the East Qalamoun region continue to hand over their weapons and ammunition to the Syrian government after accepting an evacuation agreement.
Unbelievably huge quantities of ATGM launchers and missiles were seized by the Syrian Army before the rebel fighters leave to the country’s north.
The handed over arsenal include the US-made TWO, French-made Milan and the Chinese-made HJ-8; all are anti-tank, tube-launched missiles.
A military source said that more arms are to be handed over in conjunction with militant evacuation.
“The quantities [of weapons] seized in East Qalamoun are far more greater than those confiscated from ISIS in Deir Ezzor province”, the same source added.
Yesterday, the rebel factions in East Qalamoun surrendered dozens of tanks and armored vehicles to the Syrian Army.
