The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) uncovered a large ammo depot during a recent combing operation in the country’s southern region, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported on August 4.

“While combing the liberated villages in the southern region in order to secure them and insure the safe return of the locals to their homes, an ammo depot of the terrorist groups’ remnants was uncovered,” a military source told the state-run agency.

The ammo depots contained large quantities of weapons and ammunition, including:

  • A US-made TOW anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) launcher along with three missiles;
  • Two Soviet-made Konkurs ATGMs;
  • A Soviet-made Fagot ATGM;
  • A Soviet-made Strela-2 man-portable air-defense system (MANPADS);
  • A DJI Phantom 4 small drone equipped with a thermal imaging camera.

Most of these weapons were supplied by the U.S. as a part of a secret operation to train and equip anti-government groups in Syria. The operation, codenamed “Timber Sycamore,” was authorized by former U.S. President Barack Obama in 2013. Three years later it was halted by Prescient Donald Trump.

    That’s a ton (several no doubt) of bullets. But I wouldn’t like to be in a tank and fire those big boys.

    The US and UK weapons had delivered to Al-Qaeda and ISIS terrorists in Syria via Israeli terrorists.

    Nice find. Talking of Operation Timber Sycamore, it still goes on. Ironically, the old head of the CIA, David Patreaus, is doing seriously well out of it. Remember, he lost his job, owing to bedroom talk, covering classified information? So what is he upto now, as the Bulgarian Ratway comes to mind?

    Operation “Timber Sycamore” continues…

    ‘…Operation “Timber Sycamore”, initiated by President Barack Obama was privatized a little before the election of President Donald Trump. It is now coordinated by the investment fund KKR (established by Henry Kravis and whose military activities are led by the former head of the CIA, General David Petraeus).

    “Timber Sycamore” is the most important arms trafficking operation in History. It involves at least 17 governments. The transfer of weapons, meant for jihadist organizations, is carried out by Silk Way Airlines, a Azerbaïdjan public company of cargo planes.

    In the week 27 November – 2 December 2018, eight of this company’s cargo planes landed at Aden (Yemen), Erbil and Bagdad (Iraq), Beirut (Lebanon), Djibouti (Djibouti), Kabul and Bagram (Afghanistan) and Tripoli (Libya). Furthermore, the transport of personnel between Djibouti and Aden was carried out by Taquan Air which was up till now a small US company working exclusively for business trips or tourism in Alaska… https://www.voltairenet.org/article204373.html

    Eastern Europe and the lucrative Middle East arms trade
    Many eastern European countries supply arms to the Middle East. The trade is said to be worth more than a billion euros, with the majority of goods going to Saudi Arabia. But the weapons don’t stay there… https://www.dw.com/en/eastern-europe-and-the-lucrative-middle-east-arms-trade/a-19459840

    ……………..

    Out of curiousity, why has Israel decided it is time to evacuate the Israel Secret Intelligence Services/Al Qaeda/White Helmets (or whatever they are called today) from Southern Syria?

    Faux Humanitarian Irwin Cotler, the White Helmets, and the Whitewashing of an Appalling Agenda
    Cotler’s campaigns for foreign regime change or intervention almost always march in lock-step with neoconservative U.S. foreign policy. His “humanitarian” branding is but a thin veneer of hypocrisy to conceal his establishment policies — policies that almost always serve the interests of Israel.

        Fingers crossed and in every orifice going.

    Nice find mister SAA!!!

  • gustavo

    Much more weapons must be hidden in Syria land. Israel-USA-NATO know very well how to send these weapons through Turkey (NATO member) landa.

  • goingbrokes

    Wow, massive dump. The jihadists created ammo dumps wherever they could, but there must be a system of code or signs for finding these dumps. Burying stuff randomly doesn’t seem so clever if you want to locate it five years later (as I’m sure the plan was, when the invasion didn’t fully succeed in the first year).
