On November 18, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) uncovered a large ammo depot during a search operation in the town of Yadudah in the northwestern Daraa countryside, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

The ammo depot contained two US-made TOW anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) along with their launcher, an Iranian-made Raad ATGM, several rounds for the Czechoslovakian-made RPG-75 anti-tank weapon, a Russian RPO-A thermobaric rocket launcher, a US M72 LAW anti-tank rocket-propelled grenade, a Russian RPG-22 anti-tank rocket-propelled grenade and several night vision devices.

While some of these weapons were captured from the ammo depots of the SAA, the vast majority of them, including the TOW ATGMs, had been supplied by the U.S. and its allies to the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in southern Syria back in 2014.

The FSA was supposed to hand over all of these weapons to the SAA under the reconciliation agreement, which was reached few months ago. However, some radical elements hid some weapons in order to sell them or use them in terrorist attacks in the future.

      Russia has no interest in supporting the Taliban.

    These weapons are the United States property and should immediately be delivered back to the nearest American Embassy.
    Anyone in possession of these weapons will be brought to court and/or imposed sanctions on until they are back on US territory and VAT and fee paid.

    Its completely up to China and yourselves.

      That would be a great photo op!
      Open truck full of US weapons sitting in front of a US Embassy or consulate.
      All of them fixed to misfire of course. :)

    Poetic justice would be to donate the seized weapons to the Palestinians in Gaza.
