The ISIS-linked Amaq news agency released a video on October 24 that depicts a destruction of the US-made Abrams M1 main battle tank near the group’s Iraqi main stronghold, Mosul. The battle tank was reportedly blown up with the Kornet ATGM (anti-tank guided missile).
The event took place at the Qarayyah crossroa, south of Mosul.
