What you are about to watch is an actual event.
The Israeli Armed Forces filmed this in real time. What you’ll see is a fully armoured Syrian tank being hit by an Israeli laser-guided, steel-penetrating, phosphorous-filled “hand held” rocket. The rocket is small, very portable and is a tightly controlled weapon. There must be no fewer than 2 soldiers present to verify the use, one must be a senior officer with a minimum of 10 years military service.
This tank was headed for one of Israel ‘s settlements. There were four more tanks one mile to the rear of this tank. They turned around before getting to this area after learning what had happened to the lead tank. You can hear the ammunition going off after the initial strike. No Syrian tank crew member survived this event and it did not make the news. (H/T Susan K)
