The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has uncovered several weapons caches during search operations in the newly-captured town of Kirkat in northwestern Hama, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported on May 25.
According to the state-run agency, the weapons caches included dozens of Grad rockets, tank rounds, artillery shells, mortar rounds, rocket-propelled grenades and loads of ammunition of different calibers.
Some of the ammunition appear to be of Bulgarian origins, which suggest that they were supplied by Turkey, or even the U.S. at some point.
The SAA continued its search operations in the newly-captured positions on May 26 and discovered a 20-meter long tunnel leading to a fortified operations room in the strategic town of Qalaat al-Madiq, south of Kirkat. The tunnel was likely dug by Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies.
The SAA captured Kirkat and Qalaat al-Madiq earlier this month in the framework of its ongoing military operation in northern Hama.
