On 3 July 2018, the Syrian Arab Army exposed to the press the reserve stocks of arms seized from the fighters in the region of Deraa (see the video below).

Western Press characterizes these fighters as “rebels” fighting for democracy. In contrast, the Syrians do not romanticize them. Even though some of these fighters claim to have recently joined the “Free Syria Army, the Syrians see them as jihadist members of Al Qaeda and Isis (also known as Daesh and the Islamic Emirate). In any event, these individuals have laid down al Sharia as the law governing the regions under their control.

We can observe the high quality and abundance of the equipment of these fighters.
