On November 21, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) uncovered several weapons caches during search operations in the countryside of al-Quneitra and in the southwestern Damascus countryside, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).
“As a result of our cooperation with the locals and the reconciliation committees in Damascus countryside and al-Quneitra countryside, we recovered loads of weapons and ammunition,” an SAA officer told the Syrian News TV.
The weapons caches contained two Bulgarian-made Fagot anti-tank guided missiles (ATGM), a Bulgarian-made Konkurs ATGM, assault rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, mortar shells, mines, ammunition of different calibers and two satellite communication systems. Ten stolen vehicles were also recovered.
Last year, the Conflict Armament Research (CAR) released a detailed report on how the U.S. bought loads of weapons, including Fagot and Konkurs ATGMs, from Bulgaria in order to supply them to its proxies in Syria. A large part of these weapons found its way to the terrorist groups like ISIS and Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), which continue to use them to this day.
