The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) uncovered a large weapons cache in the region of Eastern Ghouta in the Damascus countryside during a recent search operation, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported on January 30.

The weapons cache contained three US-made TOW anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs), two Austrian-made Steyr HS .50 sniper rifles, a Yugoslav-made M79 Osa anti-tank weapon, two 14.5mm heavy machineguns, two 80mm mortar canons, dozens of RPG-7 launders and loads of ammunition of different calibers.

“The operations to clear the liberated areas from terrorism are still ongoing, we are uncovering and removing the remnants of terrorist groups to insure the lives of the civilians,” a military source told SANA.

Some of these weapons, like the TOW and the M79 Osa, were supplied to the militants in Eastern Ghouta by the U.S. and its Middle Eastern allies, while the rest were captured from several SAA bases during the first two years of the war.

This stuff looks so old it was probably never used in the war. Who knows where it originated.

Not, they are not old, as you said they look like old.

What rubbish, keep on trying with the diversions.
These weapons have been buried or in mud for many months now – of course they look rough.
Anyone interested knows exactly where those TOW’s and OSA’s came from – and in all likelihood so do you – do try laying off the disingenuous act.

You can call me Al

The amount of weapons in Syria is bloody ridiculous. If only we could get them in the UK, we could celebrate 2 x bonfire nights (guy Fawkes) !!!
