Dirt cheap ISIS airpower. Probably a DJI Phantom 4 dropping modified rifle grenades.

What a lethal looking thing. Must be on the verge of a stall to hold behind that transport? Looks like the canards are fully deflected and the elevator is moving like a tweaker.

"The anti-tank missile recovered from ISIS in February 2016. It had been shipped to the US Army in December 2015."

Update anyone?

It seems like Assad is making gains and the "moderate jihadists" are now taking some severe beatings. There was some offensive, and a rebel counteroffensive that petered out in hours...

SAA push into Idlib will probably end as a Syrian version of Lam Son 719. Turkey and America are backing the tens of thousands of al Qaeda fighters, having long forgotten 9/11 and rehabilitated al Qaeda as 'moderates', Isreal is already reported to be hitting Iranian logistics. Hundreds of IRG cadre staff leading a few thousand Shia askaris, backed by a few dozen Rusian aircraft will have their work cut out trying to defeat an al Qaeda army with its back up against the Turk border and supplied and backed by Turkey and America. The vids of al qaeda affiliate TOW missile hits are already flowing like its 2015 again.

Really.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday said Ankara was "seriously saddened" by footage showing US military vehicles operating close to the border with Syrian Kurdish fighters, threatening further military action against a group Turkey sees as "terrorists".
His comments came amid rising tensions over the weekend along the border, with both Ankara and Washington moving armoured vehicles to the area.


Syria's war: Kurdish forces advance in Tabqa

Turkish forces last week carried out deadly air strikes on military positions belonging to the Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG), angering the US and sparking days of border clashes with the Kurdish fighters.

The US sent military vehicles with American flags to the Syrian side of the frontier accompanied by YPG fighters to carry out patrols, in an apparent bid to prevent further fighting.
Turkey views the YPG as a "terrorist" organisation and an extension of the Kurdish PKK group that has waged a three-decade insurgency against Turkey for greater independence.
But Washington views YPG as its most effective ground partner in the fight against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in Syria.
Pictures posted by pro-Kurdish activists on Twitter show military convoys flying US and YPG flags passing through the mostly Kurdish-controlled city of Qamishli.

Please note, I think it's much more complex than we are told.

Cut to 4:27. Those vehicles are Turkish in the hands of TIP affiliates of al Qaeda.
