BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:10 P.M.) – As it continues to secure areas recently surrendered by Al-Qaeda-linked militants (per an evacuation agreement) in the western countryside of Damascus province, the Syrian Arab Army has discovered evidence of Israeli support for the internationally designated terrorist organization, something for which suspicions have long existed in regards to the Syrian conflict.
On Wednesday, pro-government media released footage online showing Syrian troops uncovering abandoned jihadist positions, bases and tunnels on top of the strategic ‘Red Hills’ mountain range in Damascus province’s rural west.
Within an encampment used by jihadist fighters, Syrian troops stumbled across processed foodstuffs with Hebrew writing on their packaging. In the past, even more blatant forms of evidence have been found on militant groups in the Golan region, such as ammo boxes with Hebrew writing.
About one week ago, and following a month-long offensive operation, Syrian army-led forces succeed in pressuring jihadist fighters of the Al-Qaeda-linked Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly called Jabhat al-Nusra and Jabhat Fateh al-Sham) terrorist group to surrender their bastion in the Beit Jinn valley region of western Damascus province and accept evacuation to other rebel-held areas of the country.
