On May 23, pro-government sources released photos showing two Panthera F9 armored personnel carriers (APCs), which were destroyed by the Tiger Forces during the recent battle in the town of Kafr Nabudah.

The sources also released a short video showing Syrian soldiers targeting one of the vehicles with an anti-tank guided missile (ATGM).

Both APCs belong to the National Front for Liberation (NFL). The Turkish-backed coalition released photos of three such vehicles back when the attack on Kafr Nabudah began.

This is not the first time this type of APCs is seen with Turkey’s proxies in Syria. A year earlier, Faylaq al-Sham used two Panthera F9 in an attack on SAA positions in northern Hama. The attack failed and the SAA captured both vehicles back then. One of them was displayed in Russia recently.

These vehicles prove that Turkey backed the militants’ recent attack in northern Hama, which allowed Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) to impose control of Kafr Nabudah.

    Driving around in vehicles as big as a bus in a hot war zone is never really a good idea when ones opponent has ATGM’s, aircraft and artillery :)

    • Kell McBanned

      Good for moving quickly and dropping a heap of blokes in the rear of a town to cut it off when employed by knobheads eager to be blown up things like this could be utilised in a pretty daring manor with good effect it seems this time.

    • dutchnational

      Sadly that works two ways as reports indicate SAA lost as many as up to two dozen tanks and armoured cars in that town. Likely not the most advanced tanks, but still…

      • FlorianGeyer

        The Houthis have also proved how vulnerable high sided APC’s are as well.

        The concept worked well in South Africa where the natives were mostly armed with bladed weapons and stones though.

        • dutchnational

          Top bad for SAA that does not work within Syria.

      • Daniel Miller

        Not so mutch as tanks but APC’s yes.

  • Kell McBanned

    Good stuff, they bagged a couple at least.
    Turk involvement is a given at this point.

  • WinstonSmith

    Russia will make sure to “deescalate tensions” so its NATO/Turkey partners can resupply their ISIS/al-Qaeda mercenaries.

  • Taz T

    Russia has given Turkey a free hand to occupy Syrian lands so it can sell its weapons to Turkey. On the other side it allow Israel to occupy and attack Syria to keep Isreal’s 1.5 million Russian Jews happy.

    great work SAA!!! keep SHOOTING, SHOOTING, AND SHOOTING!!!!!!! :)))

  • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

    Assad must cut a deal with the Kurds, give them the lands east of Euphrates and concentrate all his forces in anihilating the Turkish army and its proxies in Idlib.
    He could send hesbolah south to the Jordanian border to kill or capture the Americans that have no right being there in the first place.
    Finaly a peace-deal will be made including the USA-ISRAEL-RUSSIA-IRAN.
    Any attack on Syria would mean an attack on Iran and / or Russia. Just as we know any attack on Israel is de facto an attack on Trump’s America.

    • Xoli Xoli

      Just kill all the HTS and send their heads to Guteres and tell him to get the rest from USA NATO Raqqa and Euphrates operation.Re supply PKK in Iraq and Turkey with anti warship aircraft missiles.Start creating own terrorist to lay bombs on USA NATO shipping line.

      • Mustafa Mehmet

        Not bad idea. RE you are very clever idiot you know that

  • Xoli Xoli

    Syrian special forces must sabotage and destroy s-400 on delivery.

  • Xoli Xoli

    I know CIA and M16 will support s-400 destruction. Jam Erdogan plane to make a crush landing in SDF or PKK area.Surely SDF=ISIS will repair his brain cells as a gesture of honor for a brave terrorists leader.LNA of Libya are also waiting for him.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    What a team Erdogan and Putin make, Putin enables Erdogan, and Erdogan in turn enables the rebels, and then the rebels use Erdogan’s support to not only attack the SAA unhindered, but also attack Russian airbases putting Russian lives at risk, what a sordid relationship they must really have. Geopolitical interests is becoming a dirty word in my book.

  • goingbrokes

    Turkish built APCs doesn’t mean that Erdo supplied them for free. Given the state of Turkish economy I very much doubt it. His reply’d probably be “It’s nothing personal, it’s just business.”
    Still, it’s supplying the jihadists which is not good.
    Idlib has the best trained jihadists of all. The West and Turkey have prepared and trained them for this for years, and SAA really need to pull it together to defeat them. I have no doubt that they will defeat them in the end. But it’s not going to be a walk in the park. It will be full of death traps.
    Godspeed SAA, go and liberate Idlib. It will be done.

    • χρηστος

      may i remind you that when the Russian aircraft was shot down, Russia initiated an air bombing campaign against 100s of trucks transporting stolen Syrian oil to Turkey were they sold it to one of the Sultains sons for a few $. with that the bought medical treatment ,shelter ,military supplies etc. That brought Turkey to its knees…..begging for forgiveness and the rest is history.

      • goingbrokes

        Yes, bombing the oil convoys was a real blow to Turkish economy. Russia also stopped tourism to Turkey and stopped buying their vegetables etc. which put more screws on. About 9Billion worth of screws I believe.

        • Brother Ma

          Yes but Russia doesnt do it now does it? So it is helping Turkey! Russia could have cleaned up the Turks if it WANTED!

          Putin should be telling Erdogan,shut up and get out quick. It is enough i saved your skin from the Yanks and that i run a pipeline through your stinking country”!

          • goingbrokes

            I agree with your sentiment, but practically speaking it just can’t be done. It is vital to avoid a shooting war with Turkey at this point, even though Turkey is being annoying by engaging in passive anti-Assad activity, that is supplying the jihadists. The Kurds occupy a huge swathe of Syria at present time, and it will be an advantage to Syria to have Erdogan even half on their side, rather than having both Kurds and Turks against them. The endgame with SDF will require Turkey in a position to be co-operative rather than belligerent if Syria is to prevail. It will be only too easy for Erdo to allow Syria to deal with his enemies the Kurds, whilst he saves his troops and expense of doing anything about it. It is best to keep Turkey on side, or at the very least not actively against Syria. It’s not easy.

      • Brother Ma

        Yes but they are pals now. Please see my response to goingbrokes.

    • Jc Plancarte

      Turkish built? I think Turkey bought them from the UAE where they are built using a Toyota truck chassis.

      • goingbrokes

        Ok, I don’t know where they were built, only that they came from the Turks. Thanks.

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 P.M.) – Several reconciled rebel fighters attacked a Syrian military intelligence base in the western countryside of the Dara’a Governorate on Thursday.
    According to a source in Daraa, the reconciled rebels attacked the Syrian military intelligence base in the town of Jillin. These former Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters then took over the entire base and took the officers inside hostage

    The source said the reconciled rebels demanded the release of the former Free Syrian Army commander, Haytham Al-Hariri, who was arrested by the Syrian military intelligence..

    • dutchnational

      Like I said on AMN, if an intelligence base is as dysfunctional as this one, the rebels did SAA a favour by shutting it down.

    Breaking RT News…

    Ankara stopped buying oil from Iran at the beginning of May out of ‘respect’ for US sanctions despite disagreeing with them, AFP quoted a Turkish official as saying on Wednesday.
    “As a strategic ally” of the US, “we respect” the sanctions, said the official, during Turkish Deputy Foreign Minister Yavuz Selim Kiran’s visit to Washington.
    Turkey was among eight countries, also including China, India and Japan, that were initially exempt from the sanctions and allowed to continue importing Iranian crude. The exemption ended May 2 and has not been renewed.
    Ankara initially appeared unwilling to comply, but according to the anonymous official, Turkey did stop importing Iranian oil after May 2.

    lololol…….i was Right alllllll along……….

    must be clear for anybody with Brains…that Russia/Turkey are playing a double game in regards to syria or Iran…….

    • Brother Ma

      Turkey always was and always will be Murica’s bitch ,whicg is why the Europeans (primarilyRussia),Syria and Iran need to break her back and split the country into Bantistans like Gaza and Westbank to teach her a lesson for getting too uppitty! It will also remove a key US ally bitch from the area.The world will thank us for it.

      • verner

        it’s more important that the squatters on palestinian land are removed asap. by force and given leave to go to moronistan (aka usa – home of neo-nazi morons and under-educated rednecks/hillbilly types no future) only, no where else.

        • Brother Ma

          Sure, but Turkey must be broken or it will go back to Israel and America. So you must break Turkey first so they can’t come to America or Israel’s aid or hit you in the rear when you break israel.
