Syrian Army Uncovers Weapons Cache With TOW Missiles In Southwestern Hama (Video)

Support SouthFront

They Syrian Arab Army (SAA) uncovered a large weapons cache in the village of Tulul al-Humur in the southwestern Hama countryside during a search operation on August 29, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

An officer of the SAA told the SANA’s reporter that the weapons cache contained seven US-made TOW anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) along with a launcher and a night vision sight. Furthermore, dozens of rocket-propelled grenades and tank rounds of different calibers were found there.

Tulu al-Humur joined the reconciliation process on May 2 along with 64 other towns and villages in the northern Homs and southwestern Hama countrysides. Free Syrian Army (FSA) groups in these areas were supposed to hand over all of their weapons to the SAA under the reconciliation agreement.

These weapons were likely left behind by a radical group, such as Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), in order to use them later in hit and run attacks on the SAA and security forces.

Turkish President Erdogan and Syrian President Dr. Bashar Al-Assad both are united. Don’t follow MSM.

Several meetings have been held together of the foreign ministers of Turkey, Syria, Iran and Russia on the US, UK, France and on their stooges that have infiltrated in the Middle East and have created chaos and instability there.

How in hell do American made TOW ATGM’s end up in the hands of radical Islamic Groups? How were they ever in the possession of either the FSA (radical in and of itself) and/or the likes of HTS/al-Qaeda/IS? Why does America continue to pretend it had nothing to do with shipping this weaponry to people who say they are sworn enemies of the United States? Is Radical Islam, in fact, a branch of the US Government? Yes is the answer.

Thru arms traders. This cache looks like some stock that a local trader wasn’t able to sell after the various groups ran out of funding. I’m sure that Damascus knows who was trading in arms since they routinely paid bribes to the SAA in order to do business.

Gregory Casey

Who? Paid bribes to whom? Why would Damascus pay bribes to the Syrian Arab Army?

All TOW-1 missiles in Syria came from one of two sources – they are either CIA supplied to their militants proxies, or ex-Saudi inventory that KSA supplied to their militants proxies. In 2103 the Saudi military ordered 15,000 shiny new TOW-2 missiles systems – and sent their old TOW-1 stocks, anything up to 10,000, into Syria. Incidentally, under International Law this constitutes large scale arms smuggling – to terrorist factions.

Trump regime says that they have stopped financing rebels and terrorists in Syria. So this is a proof to Trump regime that you still financing terrorist Al-Qaeda and ISIS in Syria and in the rest of the world. They are your stooges..

Merijn

I never have been a fan of Trump….or any of the other American Puppeticians for that matter…. they are Criminals & Psychopaths…

Ace

No. It’s proof that in some prior period someone with access to these ATGMs transferred or sold them to the jihadis. Period. But for you, the U.S. is “still” supplying that weapon.

Zionism = EVIL

The SAA should hand over all captured terrorist equipment to Hezbollah. Anyway, US idiots are wasting their deadbeat taxpayers money on a lost war.

Icarus Tanović

Let’s send them straight back to Al Nusra.

Hide Behind

There are two popular expressions within US and Europe to desribe the topic of article; “Duh!”, and, “Who gives a damn”!
Only to brain dead would question of how and where in heck did the millions of small arms and their rounds, and all the hi-tech weaponry come from, Syria itself never could nor did produce its own military armaments, prefering to buy cast off old and antiquated junk from foreign sources.
All good enough to use on own populace and as Viagra for the leadership and their politicly appointed military and police Officials.
