The Turkish-backed Syrian Front for Liberation (NFL) violated the temporary ceasefire around Idlib and carried out a series of anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) attacks on the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) on May 18.
NFL fighters destroyed a battle tank, a truck and an MT-LB armored tracked vehicle of the SAA in the northwestern part of Hama.
In another attack, the Turkish-backed militants targeted a group of Syrian soldiers near the town of al-Hwaiz. However, the ATGM missed its target.
The NFL used Russian-made Kornet and US-made TOW ATGMs in its attacks. These missiles were likely supplied by Turkey. The Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) is known to be operating both systems.
Despite these attacks, the situation in northern Hama remains calm, with no response from the SAA. However, this situation could change in the upcoming few hours.
