BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 P.M>)- The jihadist rebels launched a big counter-offensive in southern Aleppo this evening to retake the ground they lost to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) earlier in the day.

Led by the Turkestan Islamic Party (TIP) and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS), the jihadist rebels launched a powerful attack on the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at the recently captured town of Zeitan east of the Aleppo-Damascus Highway (M-5).

According to reports from the front, the jihadist rebels managed to retake the town from the Syrian Arab Army, while also capturing a T-90 tank.

The loss of Zeitan may not be major, but losing the T-90 tank prove problematic as it is another major piece of equipment the Syrian military has lost to the jihadist forces inside Syria.

Earlier in the week, the Turkish-backed forces released a video of their troops firing an anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) at a Syrian Army T-90 tank in southern Aleppo. The missile was seen hitting the tank, but the vehicle itself kept moving as its armor absorbed the projectile.

This shall be reversed. Their days are numbered unless they cut and run. I believe these cowards will make a bee line to the border and kill innocent civilians.

Losing a T-90 Tank? You mean the crew just abandoned and ran away or were killed which is not possible unless you hit the tank with ATGM and neutralize it. If it was hit is it so badly damaged to just pose for a photo or in working condition? Which Division in SAA had this Tank under their command? After the few shells are used up to fire then it is as good as a tractor. Did the Russians fix any GPS devices anywhere where it will give a blip and tell them I am here 🙂 😉
