SYRIAN officials reported having found a huge cache of British and US-made weapons today during clean-up operations in former jihadist strongholds.
Authorities made the latest discoveries in the Damascus countryside and in the Quneitra region in Syria’s Golan Heights which were liberated from terrorist groups in the summer.
Weapons, ammunition and medical supplies were found in local villages as Syrian authorities worked with local reconciliation committees in Jibat al-Khashab, Quneitra province and Beit Jin, Rif Dimashq province, as they reassert control of vast swathes of the country.
The cache included US-made sniper rifles and anti-armour shells along with machineguns, anti-aircraft installations, crates of bullets, mortar shells, telecommunications equipment and a range of medical and lab equipment, from electrocardiography machines to tools for a dental clinic.
Most of the equipment was US or British made according to the Syrian Arab News Agency which circulated photographs and video footage of the find.
It is the latest evidence produced by the Syrian government which has long warned of plans by imperialist countries, including Britain, France and the US, to remove President Bashar al-Assad and his government from power.
Russian military sources have joined Mr Assad in accusing pseudo-humanitarian group the White Helmets of staging fake chemical attacks to pave the way for intervention and regime change in Syria by imperialist forces.
Recent US bombing raids in northern Syria led to accusations on the use of banned white phosphorus, which were denied by Washington.
Syrian Army forces have found large stocks of US, British, French and Israeli-supplied weapons as they clear out jihadist groups across the country.
