During a raid in the eastern countryside of Daraa, the Syrian Armed Forces seized 2 American supplied TOW-missiles, 32 Israeli manufactured mines and other improvised weaponry from a truck driver who was arrested during the confiscation.
Since the beginning of the war, the TOW-missile has been utilized very effectively by rebels to take out hundreds of Syrian Arab Army (SAA) tanks. Some MENA analysts have even argued the anti-tank guided missile has “kept the revolution alive”.
Although it is unclear if the CIA supplies the TOW-missile directly to Syrian rebels, a Saudi Arabian official said the Gulf Kingdom had given 500 TOW-missiles to rebel forces last summer, while Qatar is also believed to be a major supplier.
