On July 25, the remaining groups of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in the southern governorate of al-Quneitra began handing over their heavy weapons to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) under a reconciliation agreement, which was reached earlier this month.

Photos released by Syrian pro-government sources showed that the weapons included a BMP-1 infantry fighting vehicle (IFV), an AMB-S armored ambulance, a modified Grad rocket launcher, a D-30 122-mm towed howitzer and a South African-made RG-31 Nyala Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle.

According to local observers, the BMP-1, AMB-S and D-30 were captured from the SAA years ago. However, the modified Grand rocket launcher was likely supplied to the FSA via Jordan and the RG-31 Nyala was captured from United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) by the al-Nusra Front in 2014.

Once all the weapons are handed over to the SAA, FSA fighters will be allowed to withdraw towards the opposition-held areas in northern Syria or to stay and reconcile with the Damascus government.

    US and UK have disguised their army forces as Israel and ISIS in Palestine, Syria and Iraq. Now Syrian army and their allies are burning them by air striks in Syria. Now US and UK cannot proclaim that these ISIS, Israel and white helmits are their army forces.

    FSA team is made of Syrians, Hezbollah, IRGC and Palestinians. LOL. What a trick.
    FSA trained by US, using weapons of US and were funded by US and now allied with Damascus and are attacking foreign enemies Israel, ISIS and Al-Qaeda in Syria. This is win win condition for Damascus.

      • New Israel is Muslim

        Now for Erdogan to stop being such a dick and join the Assad movement for a better Middle East, Shia and Sunni. He has sway over many in Idlib and their help is needed to defend against the jew.

        Assad – Secular Shia
        Erdogan – Secular Sunni

        Iran and Iraq – religous but moderate and sane Shia
        Pakistan – religious Sunni

        Join up and stop fighting each other, the jew smiles every time a Muslim gets shot in the world.
