Syrian army troops have confiscated some Israeli-made missiles in the possession of foreign backed militants in the southern city of Dara’a.

A military source told SANA news agency that an army unit seized a car for militants loaded with large quantities of weapons and ammunition in Mahjjeh town, including four Lao Israeli-made missiles, 36 mortar rounds of 60 mm and a variety of ammunition.

The source added that militants' gatherings and weapons were destroyed in the villages and towns and Nawa, Inkhel, al-Naemeh, Atman, Edwan, al-Za'roura, Ein al-Basha, al-Hairan, Ghadeer al-Bustan.

The source pointed out that army units chased an armed rebel group trying to attack the old customs checkpoint, leaving most of the group members killed and wounded.

Syrian media outlets have also reported earlier that security forces seized huge quantities of weapons used by militants across the country, including Israeli-made arms.

Syrian television showcased the weapons earlier and confirmed that some of the arms originated in Israel. Some of the weapons featured Hebrew inscriptions.

Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since March 2011.

A very large number of the militants operating inside Syria are reportedly foreign nationals.

According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies, especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey, are supporting the militants operating inside Syria and are providing them with required military equipment.
