DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:15 P.M.) – Huge quantities of weapons, ammunition and explosives continue to be unearthed by the government forces in the former insurgent-controlled al-Waer district in Homs.
Ever since the last batch of rebels left al-Waer on May 20th, the Syrian Army’s engineering units embarked on a wide-scale demining operation to remove all explosives planted by the opposition militants.
On the process, the government forces found huge cache of weapons, ammunition and explosives used by the militants on their fight against the Syrian Army.
The Islamic insurgents surrendered their last stronghold in the central province after years of a stifling blockade imposed by the Army troops.
As per similar agreements elsewhere in the war-torn country, rebels were evacuated to northern Syria where al-Qaeda offshoot control the whole northwestern province of Idlib.
