Syria seizes Western weapons in former terrorist stronghold


Syria seizes Western weapons in former terrorist stronghold

Damascus, Nov 16 (Prensa Latina) Syrian army units today seized large quantities of weapons and ammunitions from headquarters of the Islamic State terrorist organization, Daesh in Arabic, in the south of this nation.

Images broadcast by al-Suriya television showed dozens of RPG shells, light and medium machine guns, automatic and other precision rifles, mortars, hand grenades and dozens of boxes of bullets.

According to a security official, portable anti-armor missiles and Western-made weapons were also seized, without specifying their type or quantity.

Yesterday, joint units of the army and security forces completely liberated the Tariq al-Sad neighborhood of the city of Deraa, the last stronghold of the Daesh terrorist group in the south of the country.

In the operation, dozens of members of this organization registered on the international terrorism list were eliminated, including leaders, in addition to defusing four car bombs that the radicals planned to detonate by suicide bombers.

According to the Syrian army, Daesh lost the ability to regroup and organize attacks due to painful blows it received and the loss of its operational room in southern Syria, the military concluded.
