The Kurdish Asayish police force in the Afrin district, in Syria’s northwester Aleppo province, captured a car loaded with two ATGM missiles coming from the rebel-held Idlib city on the road to Azaz.

The missiles were discovered after the Asayish inspected a car.

The missiles were reportedly destined for Turkey-backed rebels.

Asayish forces arrested the driver and transferred him to “the competent authorities to conduct the necessary investigations,” local sources told ARA News on Saturday.
