The Arabic website of Sputnik news agency quoted Jamal al-Za'abi as saying on Thursday that "the NATO countries have equipped the terrorists militarily and supported them logistically directly or indirectly since the start of the war in Syria with the help of the neighboring countries which were prepared for plots against Syria".
He added that all NATO members have directly engaged in Syria war through what is called as "the international coalition to fight against terrorism" led by the US and Israel.
Al-Za'abi said that the Syrian army forces have discovered a large number of weapons and equipment produced by the NATO members and Israel in the recently-liberated areas, adding that the militants are still being fully supported by Tel Aviv.
In a relevant development earlier this month, the Syrian army troops continued their mop-up operation in the newly-freed Yalda, Bebeila and Beit Saham regions in the Southern part of Damascus province and discovered a large depot of terrorists' arms and ammunition, including Israeli weapons.
The army men continued mop-up operation in Yalda, Bebeila and Beit Saham, seizing a large cache of weapons in terrorists' positions.
The Israeli-manufactured mines, bombs, ammunition, rockets, RPG, machineguns and artillery and mortar shells were discovered among the weapons and munitions seized from the terrorists.
The army units also seized several vehicles, carrying military equipment, chemical, ammonium nitrate and gunpowder in the depot used by terrorists to make bombs and handmade mortar shells.
