The Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation (NFL) targeted vehicles and positions of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) on May 22 in support for the successful Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) offensive on the town of Kafr Nabudah.
On May 23, the NFL released videos showing its fighters destroying two battle tanks and a BMP-1 Infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) of the army in the outskirt of Kafr Nabudah in northern Hama.
Two other videos show Turkish-backed militants targeting two positions of the SAA with ATGMs. Both missiles appear to have missed their targets.
The NFL heavy fire support allowed terrorists from HTS and other al-Qaeda-affiliated groups to capture Kafr Nabudah from the SAA.
HTS’ recent attacks on the SAA were all backed by the NFL, which is apparently receiving fresh supplies from Turkey. The Turkish-backed coalition use of ATGMs and Grad rockets intensified over the last two weeks.
