Syria’s official news agency SANA reported on Sunday that army troops discovered and seized the weapons, including 23 rapid-firing and automatic anti-aircraft guns, a considerable amount of machine gun rounds as well as various rifles and rockets.

It added that Syrian soldiers also discovered a number of US-made anti-tank TOW (Tube-launched, Optically tracked, Wire-guided) missiles, high-explosive shells and mortar shells.

SANA added that government troops also managed to discover and seize rocket-propelled grenades, explosive reactive armors, hand grenades, a camera-equipped reconnaissance drone and night-vision goggles.

On June 6, Syrian government forces carried out a string of clean-up operations in the country’s southwestern province of Quneitra near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, discovering a substantial amount of munitions, some of them US-built, from a former stronghold of foreign-backed Takfiri terrorists.

An unnamed military source told SANA that Syrian soldiers launched the operations on the outskirts of the town of Jubata al-Khashab to clear the area of hidden explosive devices and ordnance left behind by the militants.

The source added that the weapons were hidden inside two underground tunnels dug by terrorists, which included artillery rounds, rockets, night-vision devices, American BGM-71 TOW anti-tank missiles as well as various types of machine guns.

It was not the first time Syrian forces discovered ammunition of the sort. Recently, Israeli and US-made weapons left behind by terrorists were found in southern Syria.

In recent months, foreign-backed terrorists have been suffering heavy defeats in battles against Syrian government forces, backed by the Russian air force and Iranian military advisers.
