NATO Friendship: Turkish Proxies Use U.S. Missiles Against U.S. Proxies In Syria (Video)

Support SouthFront

Turkish-backed militants continue to use U.S.-made TOW anti-tank missiles (ATGMs) against the U.S.-allied Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in northeastern Syria.

On December 10, the Hawar News Agency shared a video showing the remains of a TOW ATGM. They were found near the town of Ain Issa in the northern countryside of Raqqa.

The missile was launched by militants of the Turkish-backed Syrian National Army (SNA) at a post of the SDF near the M4 highway, to the north of Ain Issa. The incident took place during the last round of escalation around Ain Issa, which resulted in an agreement to expand Syrian military presence in the town.

Turkish-backed militants have been using TOW ATGMs against the SDF for a while. This type of the ATGM was intensively used by the SNA during Operation Peace Spring in northeastern Syria last year.

Hundreds of TOW ATGMs were supplied by the U.S. as a part of the covert operation, condemned “Timber Sycamore,” to train and equip anti-government groups in Syria. Loads of these advanced missiles ended up in the hands of Turkish-backed groups.

While these missiles were intended to be used against Syrian government forces, many of them found their way to the hands of terrorist groups, including ISIS. The rest are now apparently being used against the U.S. main ally in Syria, the SDF.

    US-made or Russian-made ATGM, there is no difference
    It’s easy to find them in the Middle East if you want to

    1. Toni Liu says:

      Before arab spring its hard to find US made ATGM in the hand of rebel and terrorist but now its easier, for Russian made its more easier because most arab states in the mediteranian use them, make them easy to find especially after iraq war

        Russian made “Kornet” (illegally – without license) produces ex- Warsaw Pact Bulgaria now NATO member. Idiot soviet commies were retarded enough to outsource production to “comrades” and would be “Slavic brothers” Bulgarians.

        1. NITRAM28 says:

          what are you talking about? The Kornet was never made in Bulgaria,Bulgaria ony makes 9K111 ATGM’s and the smaller Konkurs ATGM’s how can the Soviets oursource production of a Russian ATGM? The Kornet’s development started in 1988 and was finished in 1994…the soviet union did not even exist back then…

          1. HiaNd says:

            True! My bad!
            What I wanted to say is “Konkurs” not “Kornet”.

          2. Vox Populi says:

            Kornet is also made in Iran under the name Dehaleveih.

          You post of lot of utter rubbish, are you lonely old man? or a wanna be pretend Russian from some third world dump.

          1. HiaNd says:

            My grand, grandfather on my father side was Russian. And I live in EU (definitely much less “dump” than (Muslim) shit hole, your parents are coming from).

            I am not pretending anything and hiding anything while you do!
            By calling yourself “Vox Populi”(using all the time Latin names moniker (before you were “Lux Veritas”) and trying to hide that you are MUSLIM )
            I have no problems with moderate Shia-Sunni Islam, abut I have problem with scum like you.
            You are most probably somewhere on the West, typical Islamist bot, hating Assad and loving Erdogan.

            He is Zionism = EVIL
            Look at the upvoters of his first comment in this link
            https://southfront.org/suicide-bomber-targets-russian-fsb-office-at-least-six-injured/
            Except 3-4 of them, all are his alt accounts

          3. HiaNd says:

            I do not get it, why is he doing that?
            He used to be supportive of Turkey and Erdogan (apart from supporting Iran, Pakistan), why is he suddenly against Turkey and Erdogan?

            I do not know about “his alt accounts”, I have no way to verify which are false.
            And if he is some kind of sicko in the head (attention seeker), that is his problem.

          4. gypsygreek says:

            He is an attention seeker old man
            Today he supports someone, tomorrow the opposite
            No way to verify those accounts, but when he appears, suddenly those upvoters appear too
            They follow him like a tail
            He either has a huge fan base or they are simply his accounts

          5. HiaNd says:

            OK you have point it does make some sense

          6. Servet Köseoğlu says:

            lmao…do you seriously think that he is the only account with multiple alt-accounts?well..ı dont want to reveal but some accounts periodically changing their alias and has also multiple alt- accounts…freak show…xD

          7. gypsygreek says:

            I know but this zionism troll upvoted Iranian provocateurs with 6-7 upvotes every time and downvoted me with the same amount yesterday
            Always in my enemy list from now on xD

          8. Servet Köseoğlu says:

            ı have a fixed list of accounts that ı am reading, sometimes it varies exceptionally..the other propagandist hard-core russians,junior nasrallahs are not in my list…xD

      2. Vox Populi says:

        Russia is just a tool of the west, an inferior one though.

      3. Great Khan says:

        hahahaha Great Khan buy Kornet with carpet in bazaar, 2 for 1 special, now both in yurt.

    2. Vox Populi says:

      Only the older Soviet models like Saggers, Fagot. The modern Russian ones are not that widely available, even though Armenians surrendered hundreds while fleeing from NK.

    3. Great Khan says:

      hahaha fat American and Jew sell to everyone…kishmish…..

  2. HiaNd says:

    All indications show more than visible that HIDDEN axes Washington-Tel Aviv-Ankara is live and kicking and that Zionost=Jew-Jihad has never stopped, just changed form of manifestation.
    The symptoms like all acute, severe disgusting illness changing form according the situation but not substance of problem…

    Turks PRETEND to be on Russian side (and in dispute with Jew pigs and their servants from US) in Syria and Russians pretend even more that they believe in that Turk bullshit.

  3. Lone Ranger says:

    Friendly fire…
    Turkisis killing CIAisis…oy gevalt…

    1. JIMI JAMES says:

      Good old friendly fire,using their tools against them,oh well.

    2. Vox Populi says:

      Turkey is facing the prospect a larger and more lethal war in Syria post Jan 20, 2021 as Biden administration will take a more nuanced stance on Turkish aggression in the region. Turkish military losses are rising rapidly in both Iraq and Syria and its relations with Iran and Russia are deteriorating rapidly.

      Turkey announces two soldiers killed in northeastern Syria in an ambush by unknown attackers

      1. Nexusfast123 says:

        Biden struggles to link words together in a meaningful way

    Two sound waves collide with one another,eventually cancel one another = silence!
