BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – Islamic State (ISIS) militants showed off their new military hardware in east Aleppo yesterday, as they attacked the Syrian Arab Army with recently captured Turkish armored vehicles.
The terrorist group’s official media, Al-‘Amaq, posted footage, yesterday, of their forces using Turkish Kobra vehicles to attack the Syrian Arab Army south of Al-Bab.
Using Turkish armored vehicles, the Islamic State recaptured the village of Rasm Surhan after launching a counter-offensive against the Syrian Arab Army.
These armored vehicles were captured by the Islamic State forces during the Turkish Army’s failed offensives east of Al-Bab.
A senior officer from the Syrian Arab Army told Al-Masdar last week that they believe the Turkish Army purposely leaves their equipment in east Al-Bab so that the Islamic State can reuse it against the government forces later.
