Western weapons found in terrorist hideout in Syria

Damascus, May 3 (Prensa Latina) A cache of arms and ammunition was discovered on Monday by Syrian Security Forces in the north of the Homs province.

The supplies were seized during combing operations in areas freed from terrorists and thanks to information provided by local residents, a security agent told the Ikhbariya TV national news channel.

He explained that 188 automatic rifles, seven general purpose machine guns, 114 boxes of 12.7-mm rounds and 18 boxes of 14.5-mm ammunition, 101 mortar projectiles, 60 RPG rockets and four boxes of mortar fuses were found in the place abandoned by terrorists.

Some of the ammunition seized is of Western origin, said the officer, who highlighted the collaboration of local residents to locate the site.

Large amounts of weapons and ammunition have been discovered in recent years in areas that were under the control of extremists, demonstrating the scale of support they receive from the United States, Israel and their allies in Europe and the region to overthrow the legitimate government of Syria.
