DAMASCUS, SRYIA (4:05 P.M.) – The Syrian Army unites continue full-scale mop-up operations across the former rebel-held East Qalamoun region after militants left to the country’s north.
Yesterday, huge quantities of arms hidden in caves were found. Those include 5 tanks, heavy machineguns, ground-to-ground missiles, ammunition, explosives and IEDs, as well as medical supplies.
All the restored weapons and supplies were looted by rebels when they had raided armories for the Syrian Army in Mahin town back in 2013.
Last month, the Syrian Army officially took over the entire East Qalamoun region after rebel fighters left to Syria’s north as per a surrender deal.
