The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) uncovered loads of weapons and military equipment, some of which had been supplied to militants by Israel, during a recent search operation in the country’s southern region, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported on September 25.
“While combing what is left of the areas where the army restored peace and stability [in the southern region], the authorities uncovered quantities of weapons, ammunition, shells and Motorola communication systems made by the Israeli enemy,” a military source told the state-run agency.
The weapons included at least 60 Grad 122mm rockets, dozens of tank rounds, heavy machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades and load of ammunition of different calibers.
The SAA also found an Israeli-registered vehicle that was reportedly supplied to armed groups, which controlled large parts of the southern region up until mid-2018.
In the last few months, the SAA’s intensified its operations in the southern region in order counter the growing influence of ISIS and other terrorist groups.
