Syrian authorities have uncovered a large weapons cache during the recent search operation in the country’s southern region, the Syrian Arab News Agency reported on November 8.

“Through security follow-up and in cooperation with the honorable people of the southern region, large quantities of various weapons, some are Western-made, were seized,” a Syrian security source told the news agency.

The seized weapons included more than 30 U.S.-made TOW anti-tank guided missiles. The missiles of this type have a range of over 4 km and can penetrate up to 900 mm of rolled homogeneous armor behind explosive reactive armor.

The weapons also included assault rifles, heavy machine guns, rocket launchers and loads of ammunition of different calibers and types.

Hundreds of TOW missiles were supplied, along with other weapons, by the U.S. as a part of a covert operation to train and equip anti-government groups in Syria. The operation, condemned “Timber Sycamore,” was authorized by the President Barack Obama in 2013. Three years later, it was halted by President Donald Trump.

It’s not finders keepers the Syrians should ‘return’ these to their rightful owners.

So as soon as Trump stopped support for Isis ,Turkey (2016) took over…

Jens Holm

Obama did that by stopping Hillary. Obama also after disputes stopped Saudis supporting ISIS and limited their acces to the best America weapons to level 2.

I love when US make such big deal when Iran selling (rightfully) weapons to Yemen, to protect their civilians from Wahhabi/Zion shitheads. Yet here they are selling (giving*) weapons to “Freedom fighters” that later on go to EU with help of Turkey, to show how much they love European, by beheading them. :)

Yup, they fool morons and there isn’t anything that can change their minds no matter what.

Alberto Garza

the u.s. indirectly provided a lot of tow missiles to the syrian goverment .


Now if only they could sell those on ETSY. I’ll be adding them to my cart and checkout!
