The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) suffered from heavy losses on August 15 while repelling the militants’ attack on the town of Sukayk and its hilltop in southeastern Idlib, videos released by the National Front for Liberation (NFL) revealed.
The videos show the Turkish-backed coalition’s fighters destroying a battle tank, a BMP-1 infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) and a vehicle-mounted 23mm cannon of the army with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs).
NFL fighters usually use US-made TOW, Russian-made Kornet and Bulgarian-made Fagot and Konkurs ATGMs. All of these missiles are believed to be supplied by Turkey.
Despite suffering some losses, the SAA managed to hold onto its positions in Sukayk and its hilltop. Recent reports indicate that the army has resumed its advance in the region.
