PALMYRA, Syria, May 5. /TASS/. Experts from the Russian Armed Forces' international mine-clearing center have found explosive devices made in the US, Italy, China, Russia, and other countries, the chief of Russia's Corps of Engineers, Gen Yuri Stavitsky told reporters on Thursday.
"The mines [that have been found] are of the American, Italian, Chinese, and Russian old type manufacture or were made in other countries, but all the marks on them have been rubbed out," he said.
Gen Stavitsky pointed out the high level of training of the sappers fighting in the ranks of terrorist groupings.
"The sappers of terrorist organizations demonstrate good training," he said. "They've mastered the production of own explosive devices. We've found eight suicide bombers' belts designed on a new principle of action. That's quite some power."
Experts are currently examining the samples of explosive agents. The latter will be taken to Russia for further scrutiny.
