Al Mayadin was a logistics center with a well-organized system of warehouses and workshops. After its liberation, the Syrian military’s trophies included small arms and anti-tank weapons, artillery pieces and shells, homemade mines, as well as tanks and armored personnel carriers previously seized by terrorists from the Iraqi army.

The Syrian military also showed journalists radar equipment, medical devices and a workshop for the production of drones with dozens of ready-made drones used by militants for reconnaissance and targeted bombing, all of which was captured on the Al Mayadin satellite communications system. The bulk of the terrorist arsenal consists of weapons from NATO countries. In particular, a 155-mm howitzer manufactured in Britain was found in the Daesh storehouses.

NATO Reaction

Sputnik has spoken with a NATO official about the issue. He has refuted the claims about the NATO weapons in terrorists’ hands, calling them ‘misleading’.

“NATO does not sell or possess any weapons. So the phrase ‘NATO weapons’ is misleading. NATO is part of the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS. We contribute to the Coalition with AWACS surveillance flights as well as with training for Iraqi forces. NATO is not present or directly involved in Syria, but several Allies are actively fighting ISIS there with significant results. The crisis in Syria continues to be a humanitarian catastrophe, and a major destabilizing factor in the region and beyond,” the official said.

A UK Ministry of Defense official has also commented on the Syrian general’s statement, telling Sputnik that the claims “sound like speculation.”
