According to SANA, the weapons consisted of large amounts of ammunition, rockets, artillery and mortar shells, assault rifles, and missiles as well as a significant number of US-made anti-tank TOW missiles and toxic substances that had been provided to militants in southern and northern Syria.
These missiles would later play an imperative role in the militant offensives against the Syrian Army, as they were able to take out several tanks and military positions in provinces of Idlib and Hama.
Under a deal reached following a meeting between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in September, all militants should have withdrawn from the demilitarization zone by October 15.
However, al-Qaeda-linked Takfiri terrorists said they refuse to either leave the buffer zone or hand over their weapons.
