The warehouse belonged to a man who swore allegiance to the al-Nusra Front and who acted like a weapons trader.
He opt for selling ammunition and weapons to relatively every terrorist organization living, said As-Safir. Therefore the patrol only found some explosives and a more dangerous instrument was a FlyCam capable of carrying a small explosive.

The most dangerous confession was when he said: “Only if you came yesterday, you would have found six FlyCams equipped with explosive materials,” five of which were sold to al-Nusra he said.
