MOSCOW, December 28. /TASS/. Russian combat engineers have found ammunition made in the United States, Germany and Bulgaria during their mine clearance operation in the Syrian city of Aleppo, Commander of Russia’s International Mine Action Center Ivan Gromov said on Wednesday.
"Ammunition and large-caliber small arms together with rockets for Grad multiple launch rocket systems are represented there. The shells were produced in Germany, the United States and Bulgaria," he said in an interview with Rossiya-24 TV Channel.
The Russian combat engineers also found 122mm mortar shells, rockets for multiple launch rocket systems, hand grenades, grenade launchers and howitzer projectiles in one of the militants’ headquarters, the commander said, adding this ammunition would suffice for a whole battalion.
Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced on December 23 about the completion of the operation to liberate Aleppo from militants.
Russian combat engineers are currently helping demine buildings in the city. As the Russian Defense Ministry said earlier, representatives of the so-called moderate opposition mined "literally everything," including toys, before leaving Aleppo.
Media outlets numerously reported earlier about the discovery of foreign-ammunition in the Aleppo districts liberated from militants. In particular, the Bulgarian newspaper Trud reported on December 12 that the Syrian government troops had found an arms depot with Bulgaria-made military ammunition in one of the city’s quarters. Overall, according to the newspaper’s article, another eight such depots with Bulgaria-made ammunition abandoned by terrorists were found in Aleppo.
