Syrian government army units have discovered warehouses with weapons and ammunition, including those produced in Israel while patrolling areas in Deir Ez-Zor liberated from Daesh terrorist group (outlawed in Russia), the SANA news agency reported.

The warehouses with a huge amount of rockets, mortars, tank shells and other ammunition were discovered in Al Boukamal and Al Mayadin areas, according to the Syrian state-run news agency. The weapons reportedly were produced in Israel.

A source told the media outlet that in one of the tunnels in the al-Sbikhan village to the east of al-Mayadin, the army units found a factory for manufacturing shells and explosives as well as barrels with a strange essence that could be used for manufacturing toxic substances.

Israel and Syria, which have a very embittered relations recently, and have a long history of troublesome controversies over the Golan Heights, have repeatedly exchanged fire, with the latest incident taking place in February.

In December 2017, Syrian Army units discovered a huge pile of the US and European-made weapons inside Daesh dens in Deir ez-Zor’s countryside.

In October, local media reported that Syrian troops had found weapons in the city of Mayadin, which had been the largest Daesh stronghold in the region, with weapons from Belgium, Great Britain, and Israel. As the Syrian military noted, the jihadists supposedly received these weapons, which were allegedly bought under Pentagon programs, in order to help the allies.

I do not think someone could be surprise about this, rather this is what one expected for sure.

Surprised of 2 boxes with Hebrew markings? Well, I’m the EU and I hunt. Guess what? I have more boxes with Hebrew markings since I purchased gear from IDF surplus for my sporting activity! They’re simply hyper competitive and ship worldwide. Moreover, Israel is the #10 arms exporter, many countries, especially in Asia, are their clients, they even surpass US missiles sales in the region. Even Iran is client, even if they try to hide it. Khomeini even purchased dismantled Israeli Phantom-II as spare parts, exactly like Turkey did with German ones, or else, the Iranian F-4 fleet would be… Read more »

You can even found 45,000 Uzi SMGs in possessin of IRGC and Iranian navy commandos, and these weren’t bought by the Shah but by Khomeini… In 2014, two Israeli Haredis were arrested (if I remember well, in Malta) under US request after having smuggled more than a dozen millions dollars in fighter jet spare parts to Iran…

“…“Stern” is your last name.” Yes, it is. He said so. And he is often badly biased. Sure. But in this case he is correct. What needs to be proven is that Israel directly sold to ISIS. Which is highly unlikely. “… Israel is the #10 arms exporter …” IE: they sold it to a middle-man. In this case it needs to be proven that they sold it to someone they new will forward it to ISIS. For example, if the weapons were sold say 10 years ago, there was no ISIS, they couldn’t foresee this will happen. And so… Read more »
