A T-72 tank was likely destroyed today as insurgents in the northern Hama countryside fired an anti-tank missile upon a gathering of Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops.
The rebel forces targeted a SAA trench near the village of Qomhana with a BGM-71 TOW wire-guided missile, causing the tank crew to bail out upon impact.

Meanwhile, the frontline situation in northern Hama has been deadlocked ever since government forces retook the town of Souran last October.
The SAA is heavily occupied with its offensives in Palmyra, Damascus and Aleppo while Islamist factions are busy attacking one another in the Idlib governorate; effectively, neither side is able to mobilize for a large-scale offensive.
