BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 P.M.) – The militant forces in northern Hama recently carried out a missile strike on a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) T-72 tank in the town of Shizar.

The missile, which was likely fired from a distance of 5 kilometers or more, managed to hit its intended target, which was parked inside the Hama Governorate town.

According to a Syrian military source in Damascus, the anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) that was fired in the video is likely part of the new generation of ATGMs that they received from Turkey.

The source added that the previous ATGMs used by the militants did not travel these lengths when fired.

No you are wrong. Russians are just too smart, they just gave a huge 100 Ton Anchor to ErDOG & Turki in the middle of the sea. They are just gonna sink with that S-400 just wait & watch. SAF will not go towards the border with Turki to be shot and Russians will ensure that. Turki will never dare to use the S400 on any Russians Aircraft. Russians will never forget that Russian fighter jet which was brought down by Turki in 2015 and Russian Airforce personnel were martyred. Putin was furious and did not retaliate against Turki as… Read more »

Luka : it’s an export version of S-400, what Russians call “Monkey Models”…
Moreover, it’s just 2 batteries and I wouldn’t bet Russia has no backdoor to de-activate these…

“probablemente sea parte de la nueva generación de ATGM que recibieron de Turquía”.
Si ingresa convoy Turcos con cargamento en sus narices de los Rusos, aquí no hay probabilidades, es un echo que la hermandad musulmana está detrás de todo esto.

Nobody is surprised about his. Everybody knew that Russia-Turkey agreement was excellent for terrorists to get better weapons, better trained, and free hospitalization from….Turkey (NATO member). In addition, Syria also has helped a lot with their stupid selft ceasefire.

A NATO “member” on paper which sees itself refused critical weapons systems, threatens to invade/provokes other NATO members (2000-3000 violations of Greek airspace a year, Greeks even have shot down Turkish F-16), murders or attempts to murder people in “ally” countries (France, Germany, maybe others too), has started very dubious relations with terrorists doing attacks in… NATO countries…
From another NATO country POV, even if not said publicly, two words come to mind :
TRAITOR
ENEMY

Are you talking about ErDOG? Just wait for few months when these rabid dogs from Hama & Idlib will come running into into Turki & establish their CalipHATE-2 fter their first CalipHATE-1 collapsed in Iraq & Syria. Even the mighty Daesh was defeated by Syrian Arab Army and defeating the NLF, Jaish & HTS is not going to be so difficult. These Terrorists have started to become desperate. Syrian Arab Army now just has to concentrate in getting rid of these terrorirts from Hama, Jisr Al Shughur & Idlib. Local people are sick & tired of war and life under… Read more »

But Captagon is OK, it makes good brainwashed psychopathic mujahideen…
BTW, Erdog’s AKP = Muslim Brotherhood…
So the end goal is global CalipHATE.
In fact, with how this creep is looking for trouble, he’s likely to have both NATO and Russia going after him…

Eventually things will go to worst in Turki. They are playing with fire by lighting their neighbours house on fire and enjoying it today and it will eventually burn them very badly and common public in Turki doesn’t realize the consequences of what will happen in years to come. This looks exactly similar to what a Military dictator did in Pakistan 30 years ago by promoting Islamization and today that whole country is radicalized and has zero tolerance. It has more number of Jihadi groups operating in its country than you will find OLA cars in your neighbourhood. In fact… Read more »
