Qatari-manufactured equipment sent to rebels found in Aleppo

CAIRO – 20 February 2020: The Syrian Army was able to seize Qatari-manufactured equipment and medicine that were used by terrorist militias in Aleppo.

This week, the Syrian military continued strikes on the western countryside of the Aleppo this week, targeting the militant stronghold of Daret ‘Izza near the Turkish border.

A statement by the military institution said soldiers were able to find a field hospital for terrorists within Ibn Hayyan Private School, and inside it contained medical and emergency equipment, masks, clothing, filters, a number of beds and Qatari-origin medicines, in addition to a number of cars that the terrorists were using to transport their casualties.

The Syrian Agency pointed out that TOW missiles and a launch base were also found in the field hospital.

During a search on the liberated areas near the city of Aleppo on Thursday, army units found a large workshop for the manufacture of rocket-propelled grenades, handmade cannons, and shells of various calibers and others intended for direct detonation, weighing up to 38 kilograms, which were used by terrorist groups during their attacks on civilians in the city's neighborhoods.

Former Qatari foreign minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani in November 2016 said Qatar will continue to arm Syrian rebels even if Donald Trump ends U.S. backing for the multinational effort, according to Reuters.

“This support is going to continue, we are not going to stop it. It doesn’t mean that if Aleppo falls we will give up on the demands of the Syrian people,” he said.
