On November 17, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) discovered a weapon cache during a search operation in the districts of Babbila and Yalda south of the Syrian capital of Damascus.

“We found a variety of weapons in a position of the terrorists who withdraw to Idlib … the terrorists were planning to recover these weapons later,” an officer in the SAA told the Syrian state TV.

The weapons cache contained at least one US-made TOW anti-tank guided missile (ATGM), several rounds of the RPG-29 anti-tank weapon, an AGS-17 30mm grenade launcher, several RPG-7 launchers, several assault rifles and loads of ammunition of different calibers.

The TOW was used by militants in eastern Damascus before. However, this is the first time when the US-made weapon was spotted south of the city, where militants of the former branch of al-Qaeda in Syria, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), and ISIS had been stationed.

The SAA carried out dozens of search operations in the newly-liberated areas around Damascus over the last few months in order to improve security in the strategic city.

    This is how the Americans fight ISIS, supplying them with Tow missiles that will be faulty and will explode in the face of the terrorists, really clever these yankees.
