BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) targeted a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) tank that was traveling through the Albukamal countryside in Deir Ezzor this week.
According to a military source in Deir Ezzor, Daesh fired an anti-tank guided missile towards a Syrian Army tank that was moving through the town of Ashayer in the Albukamal countryside.
The source said that the Daesh ATGM missile managed to its intended target, resulting in the destruction of the Syrian Arab Army tank.
Daesh has recently switched to carrying out hit-and-run attacks against the Syrian Arab Army, rather than attempt to capture and hold territory in Deir Ezzor.
The terrorist group is outnumbered and outgunned, so attempting to capture territory is more costly for Daesh.
