According to the unconfirmed reports, Assad's troops seized a machinegun, Israeli-made bombs, automatic rifles, various explosive devices, protective vests, night-vision equipment and military uniforms, among other things.
Syrian television showcased the weapons Friday evening and claimed that some of the arms originated in Israel. Some of the weapons featured Hebrew inscriptions, yet it was unclear who was holding the arms and where the images were photographed.
Notably, this was not the first time that images of weapons allegedly produced by Israel emerged during the so-called "Arab Spring." In previous cases, both government forces and rebels used such images to portray their foes as traitors.
Last year, shortly after the beginning of the Libyan uprising against Muammar Gaddafi's rule, rebels presented weapons they claimed originated in Israel and were used by Gaddafi's forces.
