On Sunday morning, the Druze Civil Defense units halted a truck carrying a large supply of weapons for the Islamist rebels combatting the Syrian Armed Forces in the Al-Sweida Governorate.

The driver of the supply truck refused to stop; this resulted in a high-speed chase between the towns of Al-‘Afaynat and Jibraan and the eventual halting of the vehicle.

Upon seizing the vehicle, the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Druze Civil Defense units discovered a large cache of heavy weaponry, including mortar shells, rockets, and missiles.

According to a military source in Al-Sweida, the Syrian Armed Forces captured over two tons of weapons that were meant to resupply the Islamist rebel fighters that are currently attacking this predominately Druze province in southern Syria.
