Videos of three attacks on the Turkish Leopard 2A4 tanks for the past two days near the Syrian town of al-Bab were published online by the Islamic state (IS) terrorist group. The first tank was hit with TOW-2 antitank missile system on December 12 – Turkey officially admitted the fact that the tank was damaged and all four members of the crew were wounded.

Two other Leopard 2A4, placed on one and the same position, were hit to the west of al-Bab on December 13. Supposedly, missiles from the Konkurs anti-tank missile system were used against the both of tanks. The first tank was severely damaged by the explosion of the anti-tank missile system, but did not catch on fire. The second tank was destroyed. However, there are no official information from the Turkish side about the losses.

Military experts believe that militants use Soviet antitank weapons systems: the Fagot and Kornet that were captured by them from arsenals of the government forces in Syria and Iraq.
