Turkish-Backed Militants Destroy Several Syrian Battle Tanks With Guided Missiles (Videos)

Donate

On March 2 and 3, the National Front for Liberation (NFL) destroyed several battle tanks and other vehicles of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in Greater Idlib with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs).

The Turkish-backed group released videos showing the destruction of at least six battle tanks of the army. The tanks were destroyed near the towns of Fatterah, Kafr Nabl and Hizareen in the southern Idlib countryside.

NFL militants’ also destroyed a rocket launcher, a heavy machine gun and a vehicle of the SAA in Jurin in northwest Hama, Hizareen in southern Idlib and al-Sheikh ‘Aqil in northern Aleppo.

According to several reports, Turkey supplied its proxies in Greater Idlib with new shipments of ATGMs, including U.S.-made TOWs, during the last few months.

Militant ATGM strikes inflicted notable losses on the SAA in Greater Idlib. However, these losses didn’t affect the army’s defensive and offensive capabilities in a significant manner.

    • Nucu

      a t 55 if priced at 50k$, a t-62 100k. they are not very expensive, i only think for the crews. I am always saddend when I see catastrophic kills with no chance for the crew..

  • shylockracy

    The Turkish-led ISIS/al-Qaeda terrorists will surely get some new shipments of TOW or Javelin ATGMs now that Erdogoon went and begged the Trumpet for whatever kind of help the US terrorists were willing to give. There must be no concessions for US-backed terrorist and Islamist invaders in Moscow tomorrow, Idlib is not Turkey and will hopefully be completely liberated from the invader filth.

    many of them is old footage

    Why SAA is not using ATGM for long . SAA should start using ATGM on all Turkish vehicle and Tank.

    • Codenamed ‘Gordon’

      ATGM munition is expansive and Terrorists do not use tanks therefore the use of this weapon among the ranks of the SAA is limited

  • Boxman

    Actually, it looks more like 5 hits that failed to knock out the tank, and one hit on a car that appears to have killed and injured several people. I see no “destroyed tanks” per the headline.

    With USA’s endless supply of ammunition and weaponry to the turk-isis terrorists, Russia and Iran need to up their game in Syria.
    Iran could help with some of its own made heavy artillery weapons and such.
    And Russia needs to start using its heavy bombers to carpet bomb the sh!te out of those mercenary thugs and send them to meet their 72 Big black Africans.

    • You can call me Al

      I second that motion.

    • Martin

      Heavy bombers are slow and big – an easy prey for Turkish AA.

      • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

        What Turkish AA ? Can they even reach them ? Those bombers fly very high !

    “However, these losses didn’t affect the army’s defensive and offensive capabilities in a significant manner.”

    Not yet perhaps but if the SAA keep losing 6 tanks every 2 days that won’t take long to change, it’s time to change tactics, a tank anywhere closer than 3 km to the front lines is potentially a sitting duck, the sneaky ATGM users just get to a safe 3 km away line up the tank and then kill it, so why don’t they move the tanks to just outside that 3 km range, like to about 3.5 km or a little more, and if they can’t do that just increase the infantry buffer instead.

    Turkey has developed surprisingly capably combat drones. These are indigenous ly made. The munitions are not.

    One thing is becoming very clear: the drone swarm That inflicted such costly damage to Russian airbase a while back, that wasn’t sent by militants. That was sent directly from the Turkish army.
