Syrian forces seize US-made TOW missiles in terrorist redoubts

Syria’s official news agency SANA on Monday reported that Syrian army troops discovered and sized terrorists’ weapons, including hundreds of thousands of machine gun rounds, some of which Israeli-made, machine guns of 12.7 mm, 14.5 mm and 23 mm. It added that Syrian soldiers also discovered a number of anti-tank missiles, including US-made TOW (Tube-launched, Optically tracked, Wire-guided) missiles. The report also said that among the seized weapons there was a drone capable of carrying about 20 kg of explosive materials. SANA added that government troops also managed to discover and seize anti-tank missiles, RPGs, ammunition, machine guns rounds and hand grenades left behind by terror groups in northern parts of the central province of Homs. On Saturday, SANA reported that army troops found four tons of C-4 explosives in the Yarmouk Basin area of Homs, saying that explosives had been stashed ahead of the Takfiris’ defeat in the province last year. Composition C-4 can be detonated only by a shockwave, for example when a detonator inserted into it is fired. Once detonated, C-4 quickly decomposes to discharge nitrogen, water and carbon oxides as well as other gases. The detonation proceeds at an explosive velocity of 8,092 meters per second. Back on May 26, Syrian forces found a large amount of munitions left behind by Takfiri militants in Kirkat village of the western province of Hama. Foreign-backed militancy, supported by the United States and many of its Western and regional allies, erupted in Syria in 2011. Militants and Takfiri terrorists overran large swathes of Syria’s territory before government forces retook almost all of them with help from Damascus’ allies, including Russia.
