Syria’s official news agency SANA reported that army soldiers found the 20-meter deep and 50-meter long tunnel on Sunday as they were combing Qalaat al-Madiq town of hidden ordnance and remnants of terror groups.
The tunnel incorporated a detention facility with several rooms, where extremists apparently used to hold civilians in captivity and torment them. Command centers for high-ranking militants were found inside the tunnel as well.
Syrian government forces could recover various kinds of munitions in addition to improvised cannon from the site.
