Syrian Rebels use TOW missiles

I don't usually lead with a video, but this time it just had to happen!https://youtu.be/tyWKuKwcmqk


The TOW missile is in use in Syria by rebel fighters, and it looks like they are pretty good with them. The rebels have been using TOW's since early 2014 and have recently seen a large influx of rounds coming into the country. Business Insider has the full story:The Syrian government's massive offensive in northern Hama has suffered an initial setback after multiple armored vehicles were destroyed in a melee of anti-tank guided-missile fire that activist media dubbed a "tank massacre."


The Syrian Observatory of Human Rights reported that rebel fighters in the north Hama region had met the joint Russian-Syrian assault by targeting the attacking regime forces on the ground "with US-made TOW missiles … [and] other guided rockets, which caused the destruction … of over 15 armored cars, vehicles, and tanks."The Syrian regime on Wednesday launched an offensive backed by intense Russian airstrikes along four axes of attacks starting from a line of government-controlled positions approximately 25 kilometers north of Hama.The offensive aims to push back a rebel salient dipping toward Hama, with government forces aiming to seize the town of Lataminah in the southernmost section of the rebel lines.See the full story and videos at Business Insider.First video: Masasneh checkpointhttps://youtu.be/CD_VIYWGDsgSecond video: Sayyad frontlinehttps://youtu.be/mGY9UzCSpWs
