Large Cache of Weapons, Ammunition Made in US, Israel Found in Terrorists’ Positions in Douma


The Syrian Army men discovered a large cache of weapons and ammunition made by the US and Israel in Jeish al-Islam’s positions in the town of Douma in Eastern Ghouta, a Russian media outlet reported on Friday.

The Arabic-language website of Sputnik quoted a military source as saying that the army men continued their mop-up operation in Douma and found several warehouses in the town’s schools, institutions and facilities with a large volume of arms and ammunition manufactured in the US and Israel.

In the meantime, the army’s engineering units have thus far defused hundreds of landmines and bombs planted by the terrorists in Douma’s buildings before leaving the town for the town of Jarabulus in Northern Syria, the Arabic Sputnik said.

The terrorists’ planted a large volume of bombs and explosives in residential areas in Douma to prevent civilians from returning to the newly-freed town.

A media outlet reported last week that Jeish al-Islam militants delivered their advanced Israel and European-made weapons to the Syrian Army within the framework of an evacuation agreement in the town of Douma.

The Arabic-language website of Sputnik reported that a sum of 1,384 militants and their family members with a total number of 3,792 left Douma for the town of Jarabulus in Northeastern Aleppo on 85 buses.

It went on to say that the evacuation process will continue for the next two days due to logistical reasons, adding that Jeish al-Islam has handed over its light and semi-heavy arms to the army.

The Arabic Sputnik further said that Israeli sniper rifles and Belgian-made RPG rockets and PKC machineguns were among the arms.
