The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) seized a large weapons cache from the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) inside the terrorist group’s former capital, Al-Mayadeen, this week.

According to a report from the Syrian military, the Islamic State left a large stockpile of weapons, including hundreds of machine guns, before they abandoned the city early last week.

The Syrian Army released photos of the weapons cache they uncovered in Al-Mayadeen on Thursday; however, the images only showed 25 percent of the weapons they seized from the Islamic State.

The Syrian Army liberated Al-Mayadeen last week after a short operation in the Euphrates River Valley.
