Syrian engineers in the country’s southern province of Idlib destroyed Tuesday a cave, that had long served as a shelter for terrorists, ammunition storage facility and drone assembling site.
“In this area, we have found a lot of caves that were used by militants of the Jabhat al-Nusra extremist group [banned in Russia]. This cave is 150 meters long, it has a lot of tunnels and branches, so it is difficult to even guess how many terrorists could hide here. But it is clear that they were here for a long time and settled thoroughly. We found a lot of mines, so it is safer to blow up this cave than to clear it,” Sputnik quoted a commander of an engineer unit as saying.
According to the commander, the cave was also used for producing drones. Moreover, many NATO-made weapons were found in the site.
