Syrian authorities have reportedly found US weapons and munitions, including TOW anti-tank missiles, while searching former terrorist positions in the country's southern region, the SANA news agency reported Thursday.
While the exact location of the discovery hasn't been disclosed, As-Suwaida province, where Syrian forces recently eliminated one of the few remaining Daesh strongholds, is a likely candidate.
From #Syria to the #American taxpayer: If you want to know where your dollars go, look at these TOW rockets and other weapons found by the #Syrian Army in the dens of the defeated terrorists south of #Syria.#FromSyria🇸🇾 pic.twitter.com/I1wtftseRE— Ahmad Al-Issa (@ahmadalissa) 28 марта 2019 г.
TOW (tube-launched, optically-tracked, wire-guided) missiles are the main US anti-tank weaponry. The system consists of either a tripod or vehicle-mounted tube, which launches a wire-missile to a distance of more than 3 kilometers.
This is not the first time US-made weapons have been discovered in terrorist hideouts. In February, a stash of US and Israeli-made weapons was discovered near Damascus. Earlier in January, US and Israeli-made weapons were found at former terrorist positions in Dara'a province, PressTV reported. One month before that, American arms and Israeli medicine were discovered in Dara'a and Quneitra provinces.
