Units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) have discovered another ISIS weapons cache in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor.

According to the Syrian state media, the weapons were found in the village of Hasrat, west of the city of al-Bukamal. The SAA and the NDF seized 120mm mortars, BM-21 Grad rockets, 107mm rockets, 40mm grenades, anti-tanks missiles, communication devices as well as a number of mines, explosions and mortar shells.

The Syrian media claimed that some of mortar shells captured in Hasrat were US-made. Such reports are often used by pro-government sources to accuse the US of supporting ISIS. In turn, Washington denounces such reports as a propaganda.

    The liberation of Deir Ezzor City was a great moment. :)
    These old munitions will have to be collected and destroyed.
    Unless you run across a new ATGM.

      They have to be send to ‘peaceful demonstrators’ in Jordan.

      For me it was one of the high lights of this war. When the general in command of Deir Ezzor greeted the first relief troops entering his city you could just see the heavy burden of responsibility being lifted from him. Great footage. A shame he died soon after.

    Send all captured weaponry to the Houtis in Yemen.

    I like that little caveat disclaimer despite that SF has a bias in favor of Syria and against the US. You would never see a nuance like that in Western MSM reporting. Well done, SF, well done! Additional street cred earned!

      The U.S. is smart enough to purchase weapons from Ukraine and give them to rebels in Syria :-)

      (BTW I don’t believe we give them directly to ISIS but the Jihadis we do give them to might as well be)

        almost everything has been done indirectly: money, weapons, advisors). What is done directly is air-support (israel-USA).

      Just US hired Mercenary companies with Erik Prince and his Frontier Service Group that own the subsidiary that owns Purple Shovel, Craft and an African one.

    The West is wondering how they can get the White Helmets/ISIS out of Syria, alive rather then dead. Tomorrow’s talks should be interesting. How many Special Forces, from the West, happen to be in the White Helmets/ISIS?

      Yes it’s way too funny as James is in a panic as they are caught between an internal war between rival gangs of Al Qaeda in Idlib. Russia has informed Turkey there has been too many breaches of the region and Assad calls the shots in Syria not Putin or Erdogan and his proxies and Turkish forces masquerading as the FSA. Trump thinks this would be a good idea to put the Toad King on notice.

      • AM Hants

        Need to be kept there. Nothing like fighting between friends. So it is owing to them fighting between each other, that they need to be rescued, then sent to the next nation to pillage. Do seriously wonder how many are ‘Special Forces’ or why the mercenaries, need protection?

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          Well my thoughts was to send all of them there clearing the areas and not to send them to future AOs(area of operations) besides sending gangs into turf wars are always good. Problem everybody overlooked was these ISIS and Al Qaeda groups were purposely kept from one another after early on infighting. Just don’t think their handlers wanted them fighting anymore so why they sought out new areas antagonizing SAA and that is what there job was to do.

          Why do you think the West was pushing for Assad to capitulate early on, wasn’t that they cared for the Syrian people ,none of them could sustain a protracted war. Alas I digress too much at times hope that answers your query.

          Think there are way too many Special forces there in the first place these guys are getting strung out from too many operations and get short fused easily.

          • AM Hants

            I enjoyed your comments, owing to giving something else to think about. It so makes sense, tribal warfare. So hope they keep them in Idlib. It also explains why Syria was happy to transport them all, to that one, specific area. Let the cannibals feed off each other.

    I can’t believe I have to explain this, NO ONE SUPPORTS ISIS. They are jihadists and they are nihilists, they would never stoop to take help from infidels or take orders from whom they see as heretics.

    That said; it is obvious that many in Iraq and Syria defected to ISIS because if that were not so then no ISIS. Therefor it is certain that many weapons handled by both governments was as one point or another captured by ISIS or sold on the black market. For instance, in Afghanistan we gave the Afghan government Humveys and in some were stolen by the Taliban and had to be bombed. There have been fears in Russia and NATO that the extensive black markets in war zones would allow the free flow of weapons to anyone with money.

      They are indirectly supplied by the US think about all of those Gulf Arab States and European contracts for military hardware are they fighting WW3 on their own and the rest of us don’t know it,lol.

    • gustavo

      You do not have to explain anything. You need to learn and understand that ISIS-Daesh were a Israel-USA-NATO creation with the help of Turkey-Saudi-Qatar-Jordan. Money, Weapons, and training were done directly or indirectly. Stop explaining what you do not understand.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Smaug understands perfectly well that the US Coalition was and still is controlling the terror gangs but Smaugs livelihood depends on him not understanding.
