The elite Tiger Forces of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) have reclaimed an important village to the north of the Kuwaires Airbase after it was briefly seized by the ISIS terrorist group.

In response to the heavy attack on Rasm Al-Sarhan by ISIS late on Wednesday night (February 1), the Tiger Forces units operating in the area conducted a tactical withdrawal from the village only to, within a matter of hours, launch a counter-attack.

The counter-attack proved successful as the Tiger Forces restored full control over Rasm Al-Sarhan. The operation resulted in the death 20 ISIS terrorists, including the local commander (first image below; man on the left) who had planned the attack on the village.

At this time it is worth mentioning that during the initial phase of the engagement leading up to Daesh’s seizure of Rasm Al-Sarhan, the Tiger Forces noted they came under attack by a Turkish-built “Cobra” armoured vehicle (second image below; stock photo) which was commandeered by ISIS fighters.

The presence of these vehicles in the armoury of ISIS is most likely a result of the battles around al-Bab where the Turkish Land Forces and Turkish-backed Islamist militias have suffered considerable materiel losses, including tanks and armoured vehicles (both destroyed and abandoned).

Puedo atreverme a decir o suponer que el ejercito Turco proporcionó este vehículo al propósito a ISIS, muchos Turcos simpatizan con ISIS.
