A large batch of medicines, stolen from the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (previously known as the al-Nusra Front) terrorist group and destined to be delivered to members of the Islamic State (IS) group, stationed near Wadi al-Azib in eastern Hama province, was seized by the Syrian Army, as the result of an ambush for a terrorists’ vehicle, which was transporting the shipment, the SANA news agency reported.
Wadi al-Azib is usually used as the main supply point for terrorist groups, fighting against Syrian troops in Salamiyah city, located to the southeast of the city of Hama.
According to the news agency, during the attack, Syrian soldiers killed a terrorist, who was driving the vehicle, and seized a large amount of British and French medicaments. Reportedly, some of the pharmaceuticals also had labels, according to which they came from Qatar.
Supply routes of terrorists are regularly blocked by Syrian troops all over Syria, however, foreign-backed militants continue to receive supplies from their supporters and companions in arms from other groups.
