The machines were stored in a destroyed brick factory located on the Latakia-Aleppo M-4 highway, 10 kilometers south of the city of Idlib. The activists were able to reveal the location of the base from photographs that were published by the jihadists themselves.
As a result, during the fighting, the Syrian military repelled one T-90A from the terrorists. The second was destroyed by a shot of the T-72 tank.
The area is still controlled by the militants, so it can be used as a base for storing and repairing equipment. The brick factory is located in a very convenient place, as it allows you to quickly send armored vehicles both to the east and to the south of the province.
At the same time, information was received that the militants of the Islamic State * launched an attack on the city of Deir-ez-Zor, which reflected the death of General Khalil Mahfouz, the chief of staff of the 67 armored brigade.
