    Syrian government forces have previously found medicaments and sophisticated equipment for the production of chemical weapons made in the West in abandoned terrorist bases.

    Syrian government forces have found communications equipment made in the US and France, which were left behind by Daesh* fighters in al-Sukhneh Badia in the province of Homs, Syria's SANA news agency reported.

    The Syrian Arab Army has been conducting operations in Badia, clearing it of remnants of the Daesh terrorist group and preparing the region for civilians to return.
