A cargo truck full of rocket heads, bazookas, missiles, bombs and guns has been seized in the southern province of Adana, which is not far from the Syrian border.

A total of 1,200 rocket warheads were seized, according to Gov. Hüseyin Avni Coş.

Adana police teams discovered the weapons in the early hours of Nov. 7, after pursuing the truck initially on suspicions that it was carrying drugs.

The truck, which had a Konya license plate, was confiscated after it arrived at a metal industrial site, where the police were waiting.

Escorted by bomb disposal specialists, anti-terror teams brought the truck to a police station in the city.

The truck will reportedly be unloaded at the station, before an inventory registry of the weapons is conducted.

The driver of the truck has been detained, and an investigation has been launched.
