The Syrian army has killed all members of a terrorist group affiliated with al-Nusra Front, confiscating Turkish-constructed ammunition and medicines from the militants.

An unnamed Syrian military source told the official SANA news agency on Saturday that the incident took place on a road to the Qantara village in the southern countryside of the western province of Hama.

The source said the terrorists were slain during a special operation conducted by a unit of the Syrian army.

In a video released by Russia's RT television network on Friday, Syrian intelligence forces said they have captured a haul of medical supplies near Aleppo City that came from Turkey and was destined for Daesh elements in the Iraqi city of Mosul.

A staunch opponent of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, the Turkish government has long been providing support to Takfiri terror groups operating to topple the government in Damascus.

Reports say Turkey actively trains and arms the Takfiri terrorists operating in Syria and facilitates their safe passage into the war-torn Arab country.

In May 2015, the Turkish daily Cumhuriyet posted a video on its website that purportedly showed trucks belonging to Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization, also known as the MIT, carrying weapons to the terror groups in Syria.
