Yesterday, during the onset of the Syrian Arab Army in the north of Aleppo, the rebels were not only able to repel the attack, but also captured a recently delivered Russian T-90 tank.
The news about the capture of a tank has been published in social media by fighters of Harakat Nour al-Din al-Zenki, the Islamist group that is active in Aleppo. Sources from the government forces confirmed the loss of one of the T-90 during yesterday’s battle.
According to the Syrian military, the war machine was damaged during the fight with rebels. The crew tried to repair the T-90, but had to leave the machine under heavy fire from rebel positions. The failure of the tank played a key role in the failure of yesterday’s attack, forcing the government forces to withdraw to their previous positions.
