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.

    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.

        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.

    Let’s send them straight back to Al Nusra.

    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.
