Al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies used Turkish-made weapons in their recent large-scale attack on the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in southeast Idlib.

The attack was launched on November 30 by a coalition of HTS, Turkish-backed groups and al-Qaeda factions. Within a few hours, the terrorists captured the towns of Sarjah, Ejaz, Rasm al-Ward and Istablat.

Photos released by HTS’ news network, Iba’a, show the terrorist group’s militants shelling SAA positions in southeast Idlib with a Turkish-made HY-12 mortar.

The HY-12 is a licensed copy of the French MO-120-RT [Mortier de 120mm Rayé Tracté Modèle F1] manufactured by Turkey’s MKEK. The 120mm mortar has a range of more than 8km and can fire 6-10 rounds per minute.

In other photos, HTS’ militants and their comrades from the Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation (NFL) can be seen armed with the Turkish-made HAR-66 anti-tank weapon. The HAR-66 is a copy of the U.S. M72 LAW.

Besides using Turkish-made weapons, the terrorist groups launched their attack in the area located a few kilometers away from a Turkish observation point in southeast Idlib.

The SAA is now carrying out a counter-attack to recapture the towns it lost. Intense Syrian and Russian airstrikes are targeting terrorist groups’ equipment and personnel in southeast Idlib.
