Alwaght- Israeli-made ammunition were found among a large trove of weapons gave up by militants in southern Damascus.
According to Syria's official news agency, SANA, militants in the south Damascus towns of Babila, Yelda and Beit Sahem handed over their medium and heavy weapons, including weapons produced by Israeli regime to the Syrian Army on Friday.
The list of relinquished weapons includes machine guns, sniper rifles, mortar launchers, improvised explosives and landmines. Damascus has repeatedly accused Tel Aviv of aiding militants.
As the Syrian army is driving out the last remaining terrorists from the southern outskirts of Damascus, those who refuse to completely lay down their arms and surrender are being evacuated to rebel-controlled parts of northern Syria, mainly Idlib. As part of the deal with the Syrian authorities, militants are leaving behind medium and heavy weapons.
There have been numerous reports of Israeli-made weapons being stockpiled by militants. In February, it was reported that the Syrian army stumbled onto warehouses that were stacked with weapons, some of which were Israeli-made, as they were inspecting the Al Boukamal and Al Mayadin areas in Deir ez-Zor, which was liberated by the Syrian forces from ISIS in the fall of last year.
Since the onset of hostilities in Syria, the Syrian military has repeatedly seized armaments and munitions with inscriptions in Hebrew. In April 2016, Syrian forces pulled over a vehicle packed with Israeli-made mines, mortars, rockets and hand grenades that were bound for an area controlled by ISIS in eastern Syria.
Israeli regime remains largely silent on the apparent weapon supplies. Meanwhile, Haaretz reported in February that at least seven militant groups in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights are being provided weapons and ammunition from Israeli regime. Moreover, the amount of direct military assistance they receive is said to have been on the rise in the recent months.
Syria has previously accused Israeli regime of waging a proxy war through its allied militias, with Syrian President Bashar Assad saying the Tel Aviv's authorities were siding with terrorists "whether logistically, or through direct raids on our army."
