ISIS terrorists have ambushed a column of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) Tiger Forces near Al-Kashma south of the city of al-Mayadin in the province of Deir Ezzor. According to the photos released by the ISIS-linked media outlet Amaq, ISIS members killed about 10 Syria soldiers and destroyed an alleged T-90 battle tank.

The Tiger Forces are now developing momentum towards al-Bukamal from the al-Mayadin direction. However, they have been not able to reach this strategic city yet.

Meanwhile, the SAA, Hezbollah and Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) have reached al-Bukamal from southwestern direction and are now storming it.

    This tank was destroyed by an US air-raid. ISIS do not possess such weapons.

    • Vidura

      lol US isnt striking syrians our focus is on ISIS dumbass!

      • Samuel Boas

        The US is actually attacking the SAA. They have done in Deir ez-zorr multiple times, in Tal Anf. The US attacks the Syrian Arab Army constantly.

      • Jussi Hark

        US focus is on financing and arming of ISIS.

      • Omega

        Why would the US strike the ISIS it recruited, armed, trained, paid and supports?

        Seems like your the only “dumbass” here.

        • FlorianGeyer

          No one could post the ridiculous spiel that Vidura does without being paid in some way :)

      • Dim

        You’re lying!
        US focus is on marsians and orcs only!

      • Maria Engström

        The US is ISIS.

      • MeMadMax

        Yea, and im santa claus too.

        You drema the american dream.

      • Don Machiavelli

        Yes, that’s why before Russian intervention they were gaining ground.

      • You can call me Al

        Are you for real ?

      • Melotte 22

        you are ISIS, retard.

      • Bob

        US warplanes have made series of sustained strikes against the Syrian Army and NDF forces inside Syria, directly and very heavily at Deir Ezzore in 2016 and Al Tanf in 2017. Likewise a US warplane shot down a SyAAF warplane with air ti air missile over Dier Ezzoe inside Syria in 2017. Under any reading of the UN Charter and UN International Laws these are standing illegal acts of direct war against the Syrian armed forces and state. All of this has been reported in your own MSM if you had even bothered to read it.

        • Jens Holm

          Its fine with me.

          A funny version is like when Damaskus blame SDF not to help at DEZ and they come, The SDF are artillery striked, so their mainplan of cutting ISIS in 2 at that side of the river has to be closed down even they had troops and supply for it.

          They even got blamed for taking oilfields and its almost impossible to come even near DEZ without.

          And I do remember some SyAF attacking SDF groundtroops with no warning was shot down at Tabqa.

          • Bob

            Do you and dutchnational share the same cubicle?

        • dutchnational

          If you had read the earlier SF report on the Al Tanf bombing, you would have read that SAA forces were not bombed but the US dropped a few bombs hundreds of meters in fromt of a SAA columm and the SAA just ran, even evacuating a few borderposts (I think it was 198 to 202)

          • Bob

            Do you and Jens Holms share the same cubicle?

    • wwinsti

      US javelin missile might, just might be able to pull that off.

      • Brad Isherwood

        US Predators Drone, …US Javelin are both possible.
        The tank crew parked stupidly…This is usual for SAA and Iranian Militias.
        I’ve seen ISUS Youtubes where the tank is 80 % behind a dozer burm and gets hit,
        Shilka …other mechanized, …
        The Syrians and Iranian Militias are just stupid in awareness. ..and die because of that.
        ISUS captured 100s of SAA tanks and other mechanized. .which were at garrisons overran
        With moron awareness as probable cause.
        I understand that the Syrian Army had its guts ripped out when Sunni SAA officers defected at war outset…
        The SAA command has been Epic fail. …ISUS could ransack SAA arsenals giving them every
        Weapons you could image .
        The Russians even Epic failed at Palmyra. …shipping containers stocked with those 23mm guns and ammo Takfiri and ISUS junk yard bodge onto Toyota trucks.
        Russians even left expired credit cards lying around which ISUS published online via photo.

        • wwinsti

          Almasdra news is reporting that ISIS faked this attack, going so far as to destroy one of there own tanks to simulate a destroyed Syrian vehicle.

    • Don Machiavelli

      Yeah, damage is just crazy here.

  • Deo Cass

    I add, the level of destruction of this tank reveals that it was destroyed by a depleted uranium shell fired by an aircraft of the likes of the USAF A10.

    • John Whitehot

      you don’t know a tank from a trawler ship, lest alone you could conceive what hit it

    • testera

      You must be joking, right?

    • Lumen

      you sound like an expert, but you aint one.:)

      guess for yourself, what your comment, driven by mental illness, is worth.

  • Looks like the Daeshtards came across some destroyed tank and tried to spin it as a propaganda event. Why no picture of the attack, or at least the immediate aftermath? That hulk may have been resting there for six years.

    • Deo Cass

      It couldn’t. 6 years ago the Syrian goverment forces did not have T90’s. This tank instead has been recently taken out, and not by some Tow anti tank missile launcher, but by an aircraft launched depleted Uranium shell. The charred remains of the tank and the blown off turret are a clear evidence of this. The US has come into the fray and is directly giving air support to its ISIS front line terror group against the Syrian government forces.

      • John Whitehot

        how can you be so ignorant?

        aircraft launched depleted uranium shell? do you even have a clue of what you’re talking about?

        go back at commenting vogue articles, the A-10 cannon is a 30mm and shoots rounds able to destroy APC at most. Also if it that was the case, the terrain around would be all messed up.

        • as

          DU round can do that. Javelin missile relying on line of sight of it’s command units to acquire target for top attack. It can use fire and forget but those would need the missile to switch into IR guidance which easily dazzled by Sthora. If the missile also have inertia guidance then it is possible but javelins with inertia guidance probably the newer kinds and quite impossible to be possessed by ISIS.
          It isn’t impossible for an ambush to succeed in doing that but that would required a multiple ATGM team unless the tanks advancing without recon units and soldiers accompanying.
          Looking at the less damaged hull and blown turrets then it’s taken out most probably by hit from top detonating the ammunition storage.

      • testera

        Seems to me that you have never seen DU ammo.

        • Politolog Externista

          you think du ammo is magic. Better armor stops that. And this is T-72B3 not T-90. If ammo explodes, usually a tank is torn to pieces or turret flies off to manage the pressure.

  • xam

    A real civil war In israHELL against zionists , not a staged proxy foreigners-terrorists’s from overseas abroad civil war as seen here in this article infographic map , a real civil war against zionists in israHELL to liberate arab Palestine from occupation is immenent underway ! !

    • Störtebembel

      This war had already been fought in the long long ago days of 1967 and 3 arab armies had lost it.
      Sorry folk, just stay at home and cry a little more.
      ;-) מזל טוב ,-)

      • wwinsti

        Next time some Saudi royal shows up in the land of the Chosenites, be sure to go down on both knees, you’ll get more blood money that way.

      • alejoeisabel

        Oh yeah, the Six Day War of Zionist Aggression. Until all Israeli occupied lands are returned to Syria and Lebanon and Israel returns the established 1967 borders, its just an armistice. Soon, Syria and Lebanon will be able to recover its stolen land.

        • Lumen

          Be sure that israel soldiers are ready to die to keep golan hights .. but guess what? they wont die. instead, anyone touching israel will die.

          • Vitex

            Jewish boys aren’t usually sent to die in wars. Everyone else does their fighting for them.

          • Jens Holm

            Its because Jews do not reat their own as spendables.

            If Assads would like to be friends with Israels, they could take 450.000 arabs form the west bank to fill in the gabs in Syria.

            Better then russians giving free parkingspoace in Siberia.

          • Attrition47

            Like in 2006?

          • dutchnational

            Well, if one reads the info about Hezbollah and Israel 2006, it seems Hezbollah had some 600 casualties and Israel a bit over a hundred. Does not sound like an Israeli loss to me.

          • Jens Holm

            They willnever leave Golan. That would be madness having Syrian artillery there again pumping artillery grenades free at most of their northern parts.

        • Jens Holm

          Its was an agression by 3(4) big armíes lined up for attack at them. Here its true Israel did not wait for being knocked out.

      • John Whitehot

        you could as well brought out that the egyptian army was washed away by the sea when they were pursuing those running jews.

  • Deo Cass

    After a close examination of the photo, I would say that this is an Iranian Karar tank rather than the T90. One can clearly see that the cannon in the turret has a metal fodder on its front, much like on the Iranian Karar in adoption by the Iranian Republican guard.

    • Blucross

      thanks for the heads up

    • Derapage
    • Kolarov

      That’s not a Karrar, the Karrar is not on service yet, not even in the Iranian army.

    • Politolog Externista

      T-72B3 without any doubt. That close examination didnt help much…

  • Allen Flick

    The era bricks do not look like t-90s, judging by how burnt out it is it looks far more like it was bombed or mined by IED. Even with it’s ammo rack being hit. That does not cause the turret to be burnt and smashed.

    • Derapage

      It’s T72B3

      • Siegfried Mueller

        But the turret looks like an T-90. The turret from the T-72B3 is more globular.

        • Politolog Externista

          it is t-72B3. T-90 is upgrade from T-72B. Turrets under ERA arent all too different. T-90 is a newer generation of the design. There are pictures of older T-72s with gun turn/broken off at gun mantlet, probably after airstrike. I remember one such from 2nd palmyra takeover. T-90 turret, what you normally see is the bricks. Similar ones are on the 72B3, but cheaper to make the obsolete mass tank battle worthy. if you cant tell difference in hull ERA … good luck.

          • Siegfried Mueller

            It is an T-90. Compare the chassis from the T-90 and T-72B3 you will find an difference in the layout of the heavy ERA bricks on the front. Yeah, the old T-90 is an overhauled T-72B, but the T-90A has an new armour package implemented.

          • Politolog Externista

            so you say it is 90, there is visual proof this is 72B3. T-90 and T-90A are also not the same. I compared hull chassis with B3 chassis and it matches. Nothing more to add.

          • Siegfried Mueller

            Wtf!? I sayed nothing about that T-90 and T-90A are the same tanks… The destroyed tank on this pictures is the T-90 without A. Ps. Are you blind???

    • testera

      Turret flying off is caused by internal explosion. Maybe it got hit from the sides/back and ammo rack detonated, or maybe it was intentionaly demolished (so as not to fall into the hands of enemy). Maybe even ISIS demolished captured tank because it was not usefull to them for some reason.

  • John Whitehot

    this is probably a sign that the battle in al-mayadin is going bad for isis.

  • Rob

    SAA and Allies should have to secure the road between Abu Kamal and Maadine first and join Tiger forces in Maadine then they should go across Euphrati river from Iraqi side and surround Abu Kamal.

    • Jens Holm

      They dont have forces for that at all. How can You even propose that. Its not a russian videogame.

      • John Whitehot

        would you publish the order of battle then.

  • Tudor Miron
  • Sinbad2

    Go for the head of the evil beast, nuke New York.

  • John Whitehot

    it appears that it’s another lie from amaq

    edit: i see tudor already had found this link

  • gustavo

    Russia knows whether or not USA was involved in the destruction of this tank.

  • gustavo

    Really, ISIS ambushed Tiger Forces ?….hummm, is there any evidence besides this photo ? Imeans, who really did this ?

  • Solomon Krupacek

    weaker then merkava

    • John Whitehot
      • Tudor Miron

        You are hurting Solomons feelings.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        5% of merkacvas were damaged, 3% destroyed. how many % of t-90was destroyed in syria???

        • John Whitehot

          % of what?

          • Solomon Krupacek

            t-90

          • John Whitehot

            lmao, what percentage of t-90? of all the t-90 produced?

          • Solomon Krupacek

            go and licjk your fathers as, idiot!

          • John Whitehot

            u mad? i was trying to ascertain what you had in mind because it wasn’t clear. evidently you can’t post three times without expressing hidden homoincest fantasies xD

    • Politolog Externista

      Křupáčku, tis T-72B3. while it shouldnt fall into terrorist hands, it looks in the end that isilaks needed some empty tank destruction and stage some moar lies.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        no, t-90 was destroxed. independent upon picture

  • slayern2

    Tigers are trying to advance rapidly, and that’s risky.
