The artillery weapons and ammunition included AK-47 rifles, rocket grenade launchers, anti-aircraft guns and mortar, and a large quantity of ammunition.

A ten-member Chinese team also provided technical training to military officers to help enhance defensive capabilities of RSLAF to perform its mission and tasks, according to Awoko News.
