BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – Russia has supplied the Syrian military with their most modern anti-tank missiles (ATGM) after years of combatting militants inside of their country.

According to a military report, the Syrian Army has already begun using the most modern version of the Kornet-D against the rebel forces in several parts of the country.

The military report added that the Syrian Army was firing their anti-tank missiles from a distance of up to 8km, hitting several rebel targets in the distance of northern Hama.

In the past, the Syrian Army’s Russian supplied Kornet’s only travelled a distance of 5.5km.

Guess rather needed for Idlib. The push up to the Israeli border is more of a political challenge.

Spot on! Zionist puppet Putin will never supply Syria with the air defense system it needs to defend itself from repeated Zionist tyranny aggressions. Even today the Zionist tyranny launched another unprovoked aggression on a Syrian Air Base in Hama while Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was in Moscow with Putin.

Ridiculous, Israeli have no intention to invade Syria unless Syria asks for it by acting stupid. Good luck even at trying to hit a Merkava-IV : Kornet is laser-guided, Merkava-IV has automaic smokescreen put on if a laser is locked on, moreover, the Trophy system can intercept any incoming missile or shell… If Israel wanted to invade Syria, they could have made it for very long, same as if they wanted the shithadists to win! Pfff, they can totally demolish SAA within a week… Kornet can only attack a very low flying chopper, same for mostly all modern ATGMs. If… Read more »

A minor addition to I 1.) Additionally the Arab League back-stabbed Syria. The same to I. 6.) the Arabs did not steal the Golan. It has an Arab majority like Trans-Jordania of old. The UK drawn borders were not legitimate without local consent. The locals in the Golan can be even asked now. The same to I 10. international specialists not Israel excel in deep sea oil and gas exploration. The same to II. 6.) Those that want Sharia must emigrate to the Bani Saud or Bani Thani or change their opinion and ways – if they are not allowed… Read more »

Silly the Israeli tanks are on the other side of the demarcation line. They do not intend to invade further into Syria and must not be fired at – else they will react to the provocation.

Because the next round will be Idlib where the SAA may encounter better tanks.

p.s. With the Turks looming at the horizon. Even the obsolete Turkish Leopard 2A4 (production end 1987) are redoubtable adversaries if used properly.
