On January 4, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) uncovered an underground weapons cache during a search operation in the town of Tell Thahab in the newly-liberated part of the northern Homs countryside, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

The weapons cache contained four US-made TOW anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs), two Soviet-made Metis ATGMs, a Russian-made RPO-A thermobaric rocket launcher, a RPG-18 anti-tank rocket-propelled grenade, ammunition, explosive materials and communication systems.

Local observers believe that the CIA armed the militants in the northern Homs countryside with TOW missiles as a part of a secret operation to train and equip anti-government groups in Syria. The operation, which came to be known by its codename “Timber Sycamore,” was authorized by former U.S. President Barack Obama and supported by the intelligence services of the UK, Turkey and several Arab countries.

A large part of these US-supplied weapons has found its way to the hands of terrorist groups, including ISIS. In order to counter this future threat, the SAA is currently working to hunt down the remaining weapons in the newly-liberated areas in central and southern Syria.

Yes! Yet another shameful and criminal episode in the life of the Obama Administration and the evil CIA “Deep State”. The US was, and still is, enmeshed in its endless litany of lies, deceipt, deception and all out chicanery. Of course its accomplice in these crimes is the ever present King of deceit, deception and international criminal activities for the Rothschild bankster cabal, the puppet United Kingdom aka “The Perfidious Albion”. Trump I feel will change all this but his influence over the totally corrupt and debased UK is another matter.

There is new territory liberated? Did I miss an offensive?

No, remember the Rastan pocket in northern homs? That pocket was liberated by the SAA in April 2018. The terrorists left behind some weapons and those are being found now.

I thought so, but that’s not newly liberated territory. That’s already old liberated territory. When you write newly liberated it implies that the act of liberation happened very recent. Weeks at the most.

Bad journalism, Southfront, bad journalism!

Goober

It’s just a quick article that was pushed out of the door to meet the daily demand and they got lazy. Also, do you remember those claims that southfront had sources in the Syrian army? That was just a quick excuse to hide the fact that they get their info from the internet.
