This is What US-Made TOW Missile Fragments Found Near Damascus Could Prove
On Saturday, a diplomatic source told Sputnik that officers of the Center for Syrian Reconciliation have collected solid evidence to prove that Syrian militants use foreign-produced weapons and ammunition.
"Russian officers of the Center for Syrian Reconciliation registered on Saturday 48 mortar shelling of the Al-Qabas quarter from the positions of illegal armed formations in Ein Tarma and Jobar. Moreover, they gathered incontestable evidence proving that terrorists use foreign weapons and ammunition — took photos of shatters of the shells produced abroad with serial numbers," the source said.
According to Syrian political expert Sleiman Halil, the TOW fragments found near Damascus prove that Western countries have been supplying weapons to Syrian militant groups, including al-Nusra Front.
Al-Nusra Front militants have used TOW missiles and NATO-standard 81-mm mortar guns nearly during each of the key battles against the Syrian Army and its allies in Aleppo and its neighborhoods. Last year, fragments of Western-manufactured weapons were found by the Syrian military in a Palestinian refugee camp in northern Aleppo.
