On August 8, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) discovered a large stash of weapons in the newly liberated area of Houla in the northern Homs countryside, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

The SANA’s reporter in the governorate of Homs said that the weapons included heavy machineguns, heavy caliber snipers, mortar rounds, rocket-propelled grenades and “Israeli-made” hand grenades.

Furthermore, the weapons’ photos show at least one Soviet-designed Konkurs anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) and a Yugoslav-made M79 Osa portable 90 mm anti-tank weapon launcher with several rounds. These advance weapons were likely supplied by the U.S. and Gulf states such as Qatar and Saudi Arabia in the early years of the Syrian crisis.

Hula joined the reconciliation process along with several other areas in the northern Homs countryside after reaching an agreement with the Damascus government on May 2. Under the agreement, all weapons in northern Homs had to be handed over to the SAA.

These remaining weapons are a violation of the reconciliation agreement, and were likely left behind by cells of radical groups such as Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS). However, this discovery will not likely effect the reconciliation process in the northern Homs countryside.

    The Hezbollah commander that took possession of the weapons and explosives for safekeeping remarked, “Most of this is East European junk, but there’s probably a few useful items. I mean… if one were to go through and look. We’re just going to lock all of it in storage somewhere. Honest.

    Netanyahu: WTF??

    This will be nightmare for Israel and US occupation plans.

  • Start loading this scrap into barrels. If dropped from 10,000 feet or more it should make a satisfying crunch!

      No way! I want the Kalashnikovs and all the ammo and the armor and particularly the RPGs. We the people need parity with them the SWAT vandals who break down doors in the middle of the night and shoot to kill while screaming obscenities.

      • I’m no fan of Jack Booted Thugs, but how do you propose to get the weapons here, from there?

        • David Parker

          I don’t know, I was just expressing a wish rather than have them destroyed. I suppose the only way to get them would be to sell a local militia to the CIA as an American ISIS and get the CIA to bring them in.
          To listen to the disarmament lobby, a man can just walk into a gun store and buy a loaded machine gun, but, of course, that only works for FBI sponsored select “terrorists” and other government agents.

          • Yes. Gun running is only for patsys and Mexican Drug Cartels! :D
