A Syrian army officer has revealed that dozens of militants of the so - called Free Syrian Army(FSA) dressed in Israeli uniforms are fighting government forces in Syria.
Citing informed sources, the officer told al - Alam on Monday on condition of anonymity that the foreign - backed militants have been seen in different areas including in Jobar, a village on the outskirts of Damascus.
The Syrian army also found dead bodies of militants who wore Israeli uniforms, he said, adding Hebrew words have been printed inside the uniform.
He added that the uniforms also have marked by FSA tags and al - Ghouta brigades.
Using Israeli uniforms by the foreign - backed militants proves their links to the Israeli regime, he added.
Meanwhile, the authorities in Homs governorate seized a Peugeot 404 car loaded with amounts of weapons including Israeli weapons, explosive devices, ammunition and military uniforms in al - Zeer Street in al - Khaldiyeh neighborhood a week ago.
A military source said, the authorities also found an Israeli - made machine gun and hand grenades as well as remote - controlled explosive devices.
The war in Syria started in March 2011, when pro - reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following intervention of western and regional states.
The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.
