Syrian Army’s engineering units continued their demining operation in the Eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo, discovering another depot of arms and ammunition that belonged to Jeish al-Fatah terrorists, a military source said.
The source said that terrorists had turned people’s houses in Bostan al-Qasr (Bustan al-Kaser) into arms depots and after forcing them out.
The depot in Bostan al-Qasr was reportedly also used as a workshop for building weapons and munitions.
Russian sappers are also defusing bombs and mines planted by terrorists in Aleppo’s neighborhoods.
Commander of Russia’s International Mine Action Center Ivan Gromov disclosed in late December that a large volume of weapons, manufactured in the US, Germany and Bulgari, were discovered as Russian sappers were on a mine clearance mission in Eastern Aleppo.
“Ammunition and large-caliber arms together with rockets for Grad multiple launch systems have been found there. The shells have been produced in Germany, the United States and Bulgaria,” Gromov said.
The Russian combat engineers also found 122mm mortar shells, rockets for multiple launch rocket systems, hand grenades, grenade launchers and howitzer projectiles in one of the militants’ headquarters, the commander said, adding that the ammunition discovered there were in such a large quantity that they would be enough for a battalion.
