The Turkish-backed National Syrian Army (NSA) announced on October 17 that its militants had captured a large ammo depot of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in northeast Syria.

The NSA didn’t mention the exact location of the ammo depot. However, it claimed that the SDF used the ammunition stored in the depot to shell civilian areas in southern Turkey.

Photos of the ammo depot reveal that it contained dozens of Grad 122mm rockets as well as loads of light and heavy ammunition. An AT-4 anti-tank weapon, likely supplied by the U.S, was also found inside the depot.

Over the last 24 hours, NSA militants captured two Humvee armored vehicles and an improvised Grad rocket launcher from the SDF. Most of the weapons were captured around the border town of Ras al-Ayn in northern al-Hasakah.

The U.S.-led coalition has supplied the SDF with loads of weapons since 2014. Most of the weapons were purchased from eastern European countries. However, some, like the AT-4, were likely supplied from U.S. military stockpiles.
