Damascus, Syria (1:23 A.M.) – Syrian forces intercepted a smuggling car loaded with armament destined for the deignated terrorist group Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Nusra Front) in Dara’a countryside.
The shipment consisted of five US-manufactured TOW missiles, 30 grenade launcher rounds, dozens of RPG missiles, and a large amount of rifle ammunition. According to a Syrian Army source, the military received information about this shipment and its designated destination through an anonymous rebel source (likely a rival faction).
Noticeably, there has been a spike in weapon smuggling in Damascus’s vicinity as the SAA managed to halt a series of TOW missile shipments last of which was in Barzeh district of Damascus. It is not unlikely that a foreign sponsor is invested in initiating a major battle in the capital where rebels find themselves increasingly isolated and choked with every passing day.
