Syrian Army Discovers Caches of Israeli-Made Bombs in Daraa Province - Reports
According to the agency, citing an unnamed field commander, Syrian army forces conducting clean-up operations in the towns of Babbila and Yalda have also found a number of anti-personnel mines, rocket-propelled grenade launchers and their rockets, machineguns, automatic rifles, chemical substances used to make bombs as well as telecommunication devices.
In the country’s southwestern Daraa province, government troops have recaptured the town of al-Shajara regaining full control of the Yarmouk basin.
The military offensive in the regions, partially controlled by various militant groups, was launched by Damascus in June after its capital and several other cities had been shelled by local militants despite an ongoing ceasefire reached with the help of the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria.
The Syrian government aims to regain control of its border with Jordan and with the disputed territories of the Golan Heights, occupied by Israel.
