Kurdish forces have destroyed a Turkish battle tank with an anti-tank guided missile in the Bulbil district in the Syrian area of Afrin, the media wing of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) said on February 5.
According to the released video, the YPG targeted a M60 battle tank [or M60 Sabra]. The Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) actively use M60 and Leopard 2M2 battle tanks to provide a fire cover for units of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) involved in the Turksih operation against Kurdush YPG/YPJ forces in the Afrin area.
On the same day, the TAF and the FSA reportedly captured the village of Sourkeh, Al-Amod and Dekmet Tash as well as Sarghaya Hill from the YPG. However, these gains still have to be secured because the YPG already launched a series of coutner-attacks there.
