The Syrian army’s anti-terrorism units discovered and seized a truck containing a large number of weapons and ammunition, including US and French missiles, dispatched to the terrorists in Eastern Ghouta of Damascus.
The cargo was sent from the Northern parts of Sweida province to the terrorists stationed in Eastern Damascus.
A military source said that the seized vehicle was carrying a large number of weapons, ammunition, US-made LAV missiles, the French Milan missiles, at least 3 Konkurs missiles, Czech-made 75-mm RPGs and Soviet-made 22-mm and 26-mm RPGs which were earlier sent from Jordan and supplied to the terrorist groups by the US and Saudi forces.
Meantime, the cargo included 3 air-to-air R60 missiles and it seems that the terrorists intended to make some changes to them to be used for attacking aerial targets from the ground.
