During a series of search operations in the recently liberated areas in the governorates of Daraa, Homs and Damascus, the Syria Arab Army (SAA) uncovered loads of weapons, some of which had been made in the U.S.

A Syrian officer who oversaw the operations told the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) on January 27 that the cooperation of the locals allowed the army to uncover many weapons caches, which were carefully hidden.

The seized weapons included:

  • Seven Bulgarian and Soviet-made Konkurs anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) and a launcher;
  • Four Bulgarian and Soviet-made Fagot ATGMs;
  • Six US-made TOW ATGMs;
  • A Yugoslav-made M79 Osa anti-tank weapon along with several rounds;
  • An SPG-9 73mm recoilless gun with several rounds;
  • Two Grad 122mm rockets;
  • Several Russian-made MRO-A and RPO-A thermobaric rocket launchers;
  • Several US-made M72 LAW anti-tank rocket-propelled grenades;
  • Several Russian-made RPG-22 and RPG-18 anti-tank rocket-propelled grenades;
  • Loads of ammunition and many machine guns of different calibers.

Most of these weapons were supplied by the U.S. and its allies to the Free Syrian Army (FSA) under a “train and equip” program which had been authorized by former U.S. President Barack Obama in 2014. The program was halted by President Donald Trump in 2017. However, most of the weapons found its way to the black market or even to the hands of terrorist groups.

Good news for Hezbollah.

Zionism = EVIL

Actually, Hezbollah has far superior and more modern equipment but this cache should be handed over to other regional resistance forces and may even boomerang back to puppet Jordan.

AJ

Fagot missiles! how appropriate for the militants.

Zionism = EVIL

Specially designed for them. The Saudi headchoppers are all closet FAGGOTS and NATO knew it.

FlorianGeyer

As the adage goes, ‘It takes one to know one ‘.

Zionism = EVIL

Indeed, all NATO puppet armies are full of FAGGOTS and LGBTI queers. Seriously, the Dutch had the highest number of fags, followed by France, Belgium and Denmark. Americunts and UK fags topped the charts with closet queers.

Recently liberated? A year ago and half a year ago are not recent how fuckin lazy!

potcracker777

thats not high up in the priority list…common sense……soldiers are needed at all fronts..war not over yet…..Showdown still has to come!!!

Zionism = EVIL

It is not laziness but these caches are found after house to house searches that take a lot of manpower. The heahchoppers dug 15 kms of underground tunnels and rat holes in Douma and Daraa alone. The SAA has better things to do now as the terrorists have been defeated and fled from these regions in green buses with photos of Assad on the windscreens. However, many more of these hidden CIA supplied arms depots will be uncovered. Imagine the haul in Idlib, when that is liberated.

Yes, combing hundreds of square miles that includes many towns and villages is a Herculean task and I am sure that weapons will continue to be found for generations.
A friend of mine found a Brengun in perfect condition ,wrapped in grease paper during the late 1960’s and another friend found two Webley 38 pistols in good condition from WW2 buried under an old greenhouse floor in the late 1970’s with ammunition.

Zionism = EVIL

Bren gun was a good weapon even though the magazine held less rounds than a current AK. Yes, any good quality firearm if stored properly can be used after a century even as Afghans with their 19th century 303 caliber Lee Enfields have shown. It has hell of kick though, fired one years ago and even as a young man felt the recoil.

FlorianGeyer

The bren held 32 rounds of 303 in a curved mag and the same in the 7.62 rimless calibre, but in a straight mag. It was common practice to load with 30 rounds to prevent jamming if my memory is correct.

The Bren as a very accurate weapon as well, that can be a disadvantage when laying down ‘suppressive fire’.

Zionism = EVIL

Dumb Americunts are starving with bankrupt government shut down while their corrupt Jew contaminated government arms terrorist losers who surrender these weapons. Most of this cache came from Croatia, Bulgaria and Polish puppet regimes from the $550 million allocated to the CIA losers under “train and equip” program going back to 2017 and funneled from Zionist haven Jordan.

Rodger

Donate it to the Jordanian freedom fighters.

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

This could have been over in two months time if Russia could have continuing suppressing and destroying USA and Turkey terrorist.But Putin and Lovrov start deals with western partners.This deals have fall in the favour of USA and Turkey.Kurdsh who wanted to side with Russia were hijacked and brainwashed by USA and Turkey quickly grab fake peace agreement and start sucking Syrians blood.Scape goat of Turkey reasoning to invade Syria is USA Kurdish that is the current intrusion tactic well plan by USA and Erdogan.

I think the quarter-master general of the SAA has a little shrine in his house, dedicated to the holy “Saint Obama”! Everyday burning his little candle and saying ” Thank u, Obama, for so generously filling the ammunition warehouses of my SAA! Onwards to Idlib!!!

gustavo

Well, there will be more to come, that is for sure. With the safe heaven of the terrorists that they have in Idlib and Al-Tanf, USA-Israel-NATO hope to revive ISIS in Syria soon.
