Syrian officials and locals have confiscated a vehicle loaded with Israeli-manufactured weapons in the Arab country’s southern province of Suwayda.
An unidentified local source said that the authorities ambushed a car full of weapons and ammunition bound for the Daesh Takfiri terrorists on Wednesday morning, Syria’s official news agency, SANA, reported.
The vehicle, which was coming from the eastern countryside of Dara’a Province, was heading to the eastern Badiya desert, the source added.
Anti-personnel landmines, RPG launcher and rounds, B9 shells, 120 mm, 80 mm and 60 mm mortars, grenades and 23 mm machine-gun rounds were among the confiscated weapons.
The car’s driver was also killed in the operation, the source further said.
Recently, Suwayda officials also impounded a large amount of medicines that were bound for terrorists operating in the eastern countryside of Dara’a Province.
Last week, popular defense groups in Suwayda also seized a car packed with RPG rounds and other shells on its way to the Badiya desert.
Damascus says the Tel Aviv regime and its Western and regional allies are aiding the Takfiri militant groups fighting against the Syrian government.
Israel has spent millions of dollars for the treatment of terrorists injured in fighting with Syrian government forces, documents from Israeli hospitals show.
Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. Damascus says Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar are the main supporters of the militants fighting the government forces.
According to Staffan de Mistura, the United Nations special envoy for Syria, some 400,000 people have lost their lives as a result of over five years of conflict in Syria.
