An unnamed military source told Syria’s official news agency SANA that Syrian soldiers launched operations in the outskirts of the provincial capital city of Quneitra on Saturday to clear the area of hidden explosive devices and ordnance left behind by the militants.

The source added that the weapons included machine guns, anti-tank rocket-propelled grenade launchers, telecommunication devices and binoculars.


Stocks of Israeli-made medicine and medical equipment for surgical operations were found at the site as well.
Separately, Syrian army units have carried out intense strikes on militant positions in the southern countryside of the country’s northwestern province of Idlib.
 

Earlier in the day, nearly a dozen people sustained injuries when a car rigged with explosives went off in the southern al-Zahera neighborhood of the capital Damascus.

A police source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the explosion struck at about 4 a.m. local time (0100 GMT) as worshipers were leaving the Umayyad Mosque after morning prayers.
