Earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) showed off a Turkish armored combat vehicle captured during recent clashes at Tadef, a government-held town neighboring Al-Bab in eastern Aleppo.

The captured ACV-15 was presented by none other than Colonel Suheil al-Hassan himself, the commander-in-chief of the SAA’s Tiger Forces.

Sporadic clashes are still occurring between Al-Bab and Tadef; the latter town is strategically important as it lies only one kilometer south of Al-Bab and could be used by government forces as a launching pad to capture the rebel bastion.

On the other hand, if the Euphrates Shield troops were to dislodge the Tiger Forces from Tadef, this would create a much-needed buffer zone around Al-Bab.

Meanwhile, some persistent rumours suggest that Turkish engineers are building a military base at the Aqil Mountain just west of Al-Bab. This could however not be independently confirmed by Al-Masdar News’ sources.

Last winter, the ACV-15 in mention was captured by ISIS militants from the Turkish Army. Subsequently, the SAA captured it back from ISIS:

Excellent news. Any reports from AMN on the casualties of the Tadef clashes? The roaches are claiming over 22 Tiger Forces dead and only 4 turks and FSA mercenaries, although considering they lost the battle this is extremely unlikely. (If they had such little casualties how could they lose?) Hopefully we’ll see some pictures soon

Analizando detalladamente, sin duda el gobierno Turco con esta actitud está ayudando a ISIS, es factor distractivo al ejercito Sirio para que siga avanzando en la ofensiva contra ISIS.
Lo mejor que puede hacer el ejercito Sirio es hacer frente de una ves por todas expulsar al ejercito invasor y sus mercenarios a sueldo de Erdogan.
Erdogan se burló del acuerdo de alto al fuego realizado en Astana, faltando respeto a Rusia e Irán.

Colonel Suheil al-Hassan???
The insignia on his shoulder in the video says that he is a Lieutenant general.
