Syrian army finds German equipment in White Helmets' field hospital

Syrian army soldiers have uncovered a considerable amount of medical supplies, some of them German-made, in a field hospital belonging to members of the so-called civil defense group White Helmets in the country’s western-central province of Hama.

Local sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Syria’s official news agency SANA that army soldiers made the discovery in the town of Qal'at al-Madiq on Monday as they were combing the area for hidden ordinance and improvised explosive devices, which Takfiri militants had planted there, Presstv Reported.

The report added that medical equipment, gas masks and their filters, chemical protective clothing and equipment, automated external defibrillators as well as surgical instruments, some of which were made in Germany, were recovered from the field hospital of the Western-backed group, which has been repeatedly accused of cooperating with Takfiri terrorists and staging false-flag gas attacks.

Back in September 2018, Syrian government forces also found a large amount of Israeli-made medicine and medical supplies in a field hospital belonging to foreign-sponsored Takfiri militants in the country’s strategic southwestern province of Quneitra.

SANA then reported that army soldiers made the discovery in the village of Bariqa.

The report added that the hospital had modern CT scan, X-ray medical imaging machines, laboratory equipment and a pharmacy containing various types of antibiotics, vaccines and painkillers.

A brand-new and modern British ambulance in addition to a number of cars was also parked in the hospital courtyard, which militants apparently used to transfer their injured fellows to the site.

Separately on Monday, Syrian government forces also discovered a long tunnel once used by Takfiri terrorists during a clean-up operation in Qal'at al-Madiq town.

The 20-meter deep and 50-meter long tunnel incorporated a detention facility with several rooms, where extremists apparently used to hold civilians and torment them. Command centers for high-ranking militants were found inside the tunnel as well.

Syrian government forces managed to recover various kinds of munitions in addition to improvised cannon from the site.

Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. The Syrian government says the Israeli regime and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri terrorist groups that are wreaking havoc in the country.
