The Syrian Armed Forces have discovered a large cache of military arsenal from Western countries, particularly from the United States, left behind by the Islamic State group as its forces fled the city of al-Mayadin in the east of the country, according to Sputnik.

“We have encountered a huge arsenal of advanced U.S., British and Belgian weaponry,” said Hasan Suhel, the Syrian general who led the military operation to liberate al-Mayadin.

The arsenal included rifles, anti-tank weaponry, projectiles, artillery, armored vehicles, tanks, satellite communication systems, radars, medical equipment and a garage with several functional drones. Syrian forces also found a 115 mm howitzer manufactured in the U.K., according to Sexenio, with a large portion of the armament constituting weapons and weapon systems used by NATO.

    Again, US arms being used by opposing sides in war. The merchants of death cry crocodile tears all the way to the bank.

  2. Thanks for commenting, Rick. It’s also very convenient, isn’t it, the way Al Qaeda and ISIS activities serve US foreign policy interests by justifying continued US occupation of the Middle East?
