Syrian security forces reportedly seize yet another cache of weapons, bearing traces of Israel's contribution to unrest inside the country.
The shipment had been smuggled into the country for anti-government armed groups.
According to authorities, it included bombs manufactured by Israel.
The cargo is not the first one containing Israel-made weaponry meant for armed saboteurs fighting the central government in Damascus.
On October 16, the Syrian ambassador to the Arab League told a meeting of the regional grouping in the Egyptian capital Cairo that Syrian security forces had seized Israel-manufactured weapons trafficked into the country through Lebanon's soil.
Youssef Ahmad said, "They are Israeli made automatic weapons,” which are used by the “armed opposition to kill the sons of our nation.”
Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March, with demonstrations being held both against and in favor of President Bashar al-Assad's government.
Hundreds of people, including many members of the Syrian security forces, have been killed during the unrest.
The Syrian government says outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists are the driving factor behind the turmoil and deadly violence, while the opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings.
Damascus also says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country and that the security forces have been given clear instructions not to harm civilians.
