Syrian Army Seizes Israel-Made Weapons from Terrorists in Eastern Ghouta

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian Army troops continued their mop-up operation in Harasta region in Eastern Ghouta and discovered a large depot of terrorists’ arms and ammunition, including Israeli weapons, on Thursday.

The sources said that the army men seized control over a base of the terrorists of Ahrar al-Sham, seizing a large cache of weapons.

They added that Israeli-manufactured mines were discovered among the weapons and munitions seized from the terrorists.

In addition to discovering this base, the Syrian Army unearthed a large network of tunnels that stretched across the Harasta suburb.

Local sources reported on Wednesday that several Syrian Army units were recently redeployed from Eastern Damascus to the Northern part of Dara’a province as the military is shifting its attention to the Southern province.

The sources said that a large number of the army men were recently redeployed to 15th Brigade’s base near the terrorist-held town of Inkhil in Northern Dara’a.

Also, they added that several units from the army’s 5th, 7th, and 9th divisions were brought back from Eastern Ghouta to Dara’a and Al-Quneitra provinces.

With all signs pointing to Southern Syria as the next military objective after the conclusion of Eastern Ghouta and the Southern countryside of Damascus operation, the army will likely keep growing its troops in the region until the start of the offensive.
