Stash of US-Made Heavy Weapons Found in Terrorist-Held Aleppo’s Bani Zaid


Footage emerged online showing mortars, anti-tank missiles and grenades being uncovered along with a quantity of western [mostly US]-made weapons and ammunition in territories abandoned by terrorists in Syrian Aleppo.

The video appeared online on Thursday and purported to show the discovery of a large cache of western arms and ammunition in a house in Aleppo’s eastern Bani Zaid district.

The majority of the weapons appear to be of US origin and include US-made anti-tank missiles system [TOW 2A], American UN0181 missiles, as well as US-made 81mm mortars and ammunition. Some of the boxes containing weapons are labeled with the letters ‘USA’.

Among other weapons that can be seen in the video are a 57mm infantry mortar of a type produced in Germany as well as a rocket propelled grenade [RPG] made by the Czech Republic.

The territory in which the weapons were found was recently abandoned by fighters from the terrorist Jabhat Fateh al-Sham [formerly al-Nusra Front].

In October last year a Pentagon-trained group of Syrian militants known as Division 30, handed over their US delivered weapons to al-Sham terrorists, the western media widely reported citing US military sources.
