One of the major present military operations in Syria is centered around Idlib. There, rebels backed by the Turks are battling the Syrian regime forces supported by the Russian Federation. And over the past weekend, an act of rebel bravery was caught on tape.
There, near the town of Nerab in the Idlib province, a Syrian Army Russian tank was minding its own business, firing shells at a building complex some distance away. And it probably would have continued to do so, had a rebel armored personnel carrier not come to stop it.
The images from the drone shooting the incident from above shows the APC, likely Turkish-made, coming towards the tank at high speed, off the road. The tank only seems to notice it at the last moment, and as soon as that happens, the two military vehicles start circling one another.
The rebels display an incredible amount of courage, and they even ram the tank as its crew is desperately trying to fix their cannon on the APC. Because of the rage with which the rebels are chasing them, the tank crew fails to do so, and ultimately decides to get the hell out of Dodge.
You can watch the incident in the two videos below.
