BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 A.M.) – Amid ongoing clashes in the southern countryside of Idlib province between the Syrian Arab Army and the jihadist-led militias, two anti-tank guided missile teams from opposite sides of the line have directly faced off.
On Tuesday, a tank hunter team of the Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly called Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of Al-Qaeda) militant group found itself of the receiving end of anti-tank missile strike by the Syrian Arab Army.
In is not know under what conditions the Syrian Army anti-tank team spotted their jihadist equivalents first, however, what is known (having been video documented) is that end result was bad for the militant tank hunters.
In the event, the spotter of the jihadist tank hunter team was killed outright due to the missile strike whilst the gunner (seen above) sustained major injuries including what appears to be the loss of his right hand.
