Syrian Army scores new advance, captures US-made weapons from terrorists
The Syrian Army liberated Gharaz area to the southeast of Daraa completely and captured a large cache of weapons from terrorists provided by US.
Syrian Army units liberated the area of grain silos and the central prison in Gharaz and took control of the area completely after fierce battles with terrorist groups.
A number of terrorists were killed or injured during the battels while the rest of them fled to neighboring areas.
Syrian forces also discovered a vast array of weapons and ammunition, including a tank, TOW US-made missiles, mortar rounds, rocket shells, tank shells, RPG, IEDs, goggles and US-made communication devices.
Earlier this week, Syrian Army seized another huge cache of weapons and ammunition, including US-made TOW anti-tank missile systems, chemical warfare, mines weeping and communications equipment and even armored vehicles in the towns of Ghaliyeh, al-Gharbiyeh, Sora, Alma and Mlaihet al-Atash.
The terrorist groups operating in southern Syria received a large quantity of US-manufactured weapons and munitions, including anti-tank TOW missiles.
The Syrian Army intensified its activities in the country’s terrorist-held southwest areas.
The government's offensive so far has focused on Dara’a province, which borders Jordan, but not Quneitra province abutting the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
Over the past few months, foreign-backed terrorists have lost much of the territory they once held in Syria amid sweeping gains by government forces on the ground.
The army's offensive follows the capitulation of militant enclaves near Homs and Damascus, including Eastern Ghouta.
Meanwhile, Syria calls on Syrian citizens forced by war and terrorist attacks to leave the country to return to their homeland after the liberation of the majority of areas which were under terrorists’ control.
In 2016, from an estimated pre-war population of 22 million. the United Nations identified 13.5 million Syrians requiring humanitarian assistance, of which more than 6 million are internally displaced within Syria, and around 5 million are refugees outside of Syria.
