    Good show.

    Does indicate that Nazi Germany during World War II old weapons are surfacing in hot spots.

    Nice way to get rid of junk and yet pursue the aim to overthrow Assad.

    Could be weapons originally bought by Syria, like their Panzerkampfwagen IVs and their StuG IIIs.

    They are Yugoslav STG44s that were sold off in the 80s to Syria as well as many other ME countries. Good luck finding ammo for that!
