Turkish-Backed Militants Target Syrian Army Vehicles & Positions With ATGMs (Videos)

Donate

The National Front for Liberation (NFL) targeted on August 19 and 20 several vehicles and a position of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs).

Two videos shared by the Turkish-backed group show the targeting of a battle tank and a truck-mounted 57mm cannon north the town of Khan Shaykhun in southern Idlib. Both strikes took place at night. This means that the militants used ATGM launchers equipped with thermal sights.

A third video shows NFL militants targeting a fortified position of the SAA near the town of al-Karakat in northwestern Hama.

Despite the intense use of ATGMs, likely supplied by Turkey, the militants failed to hold onto their positions in northern Hama and southern Idlib. The SAA is now a few kilometers away from besieging key militants’ strongholds in the two regions.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    The Turkeys and their terrorists will get even more desperate as the end nears. Russia and SyAAF should bomb any of these vermin before they move.

    Tigers, 4th AD and RuAF employ night vision/thermal optics to great effect in latest rodent eradication efforts (among other subtle changes in tactics and strategy). Turkey and NFL head-choppers pissed since they stockpiled ATGMs at the southern end of their safe zone to defend against frontal attack by SAA.

    So in a massive and well-thought-out counter-propaganda effort, NFL chokes out a couple vids of a TOW-2 launch (judging by launch motor/flare) somewhere, sometime that might have hit something. Awesome! Then a courageous daytime ATGM shot at a SAA guard post (tent and rocks) a few thousand meters away. This will surely crush the will of the SAA and demoralize the Tigers. “RETREAT!”

    • EveryoneIsBiased

      Yeah, the night hunting tactic of the Tigers is pretty damn great.
      To those who have not seen the video, check out the lastest report by ANNA News. They cover it in more than 20 minutes in great detail.

        You need to give a link to that video. I finding that ANNA News and nothing came up.

          ANNA YouTube list, newest first:

          https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGib-bLlq8HTRp2YaEESxeg/videos?view=0&sort=dd&flow=grid

          ANNA YouTube titles in Russian so English-only viewers need something like a browser translator plug-in to understand. Videos marked CC mean they’re close captioned in Russian, not English. YouTube’s settings will auto-translate captions to English – barely – but you can get some idea what they’re talking about.

          ANNA YouTube videos longer than a minute or two may be compilations of highlighted reports from their morning or evening news. You can only tell by opening a video – the full title is only shown on the individual video’s page. There is nothing like a list of the individual reports in the compilation, but Syria updates are often first and will be used as the compilation’s title.

          A few YouTube channels will properly translate ANNA videos and either use voice-over (like SouthFront reports) or will close caption in English.
