DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:00 A.M.) – In a remarkable series of photos, ISIS militants watch close by as an entire convoy of the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) tanks roll along the M45-highway in southeastern Hama.

The photos were released by Amaq Agency overnight and show the SAA convoy being targeted by gunfire, mortar shells and rockets. Two tanks are even shown completely burned out, suggesting them to have been knocked out in battle.

ISIS insurgents also notably deployed a T-55 tank of their own and captured some light weaponry from government forces:

A couple graphic images showing two dead SAA soldiers were also published by Amaq Agency in the same batch of pictures; Al-Masdar News has however chosen not to release these photos out of respect for the families of the fallen soldiers.

Despite ISIS’ propaganda wing hinting the contrary, the SAA is advancing rapidly in central Syria while it appears to be only a matter of time before the Islamic State’s pocket in eastern Homs/Hama is liquidated.

As well as supplying state-of-the-art weaponry to Daesh, the US and it’s cronies also supply them with satellite and other intelligence. When the Syrian and Russians tell the US and Coalition forces where they are going to attack (so as they don’t clash with each other), I’m sure that info goes directly to the Daesh, so they can either vacate the area or hunker down in shelters; but also so that they can ambush ground forces or be prepared to try to shoot down aircraft and helicopters.
