Syrian Army seizes large cache of weapons from jihadist rebels in rural Damascus
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) foiled a large weapons transfer by militants loyal to Hay'at Tahrir Al-Sham, Sunday, the military's high command reported.
According to a military communique, the Syrian Arab Army busted members of Hay'at Tahrir Al-Sham that were attempting to smuggle weapons from southern Damascus to the East Ghouta region.
Among the many weapons seized by the Syrian military, Sunday, were several cases of ammunition, tank shells, mortar launchers, and heavy machine guns.
Due to their recent shortage of weapons in the East Ghouta, the jihadist rebels of Hay'at Tahrir Al-Sham have attempted to move their munitions from southern Damascus in order to help their comrades fighting the Syrian government forces.
