Authorities confiscate weapons bound for terrorists in al-Qalamoun al-Gharbi area

Damascus Countryside, SANA � Authorities on Tuesday confiscated large amounts of weapons and ammunition that were being transported from the Badiya area to Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists in al-Qalamoun al-Gharbi area in Damascus Countryside.

An officer told SANA that a counterterrorism unit from the military intelligence ambushed a truck loaded with large amounts of western-made weapons and ammunition.

The source clarified that the confiscated weapons included tens of thousands of rounds of various ammo types, French-made anti-armor rockets (C57), and U.S.-made CG artillery pieces, in addition to various western machineguns and sniper rifles, a number of binoculars, RPG launchers, and grenades.

The source said that the confiscation of such a large amount of western-made weapons confirm that the states fostering terrorism are still supporting the terrorist organizations in clear violation of international laws and relevant resolutions.
