The Islamic State militants in Syria have destroyed two Turkish main battle tanks, killing three soldiers, as reported by the Russian Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies, with reference to the foreign media and an amateur video posted on YouTube.

On September 6, in the north of the province of Aleppo, the Islamists launched a counter-offensive against the Turkish forces.

The video shows the militants firing two successive shots of anti-tank guided missiles (presumably, Russia-made Kornet-E) at the two tanks of the Turkish army (supposedly, modernized M60T Sabra).

Judging from the video, in both cases, one hit by Kornet-E was enough for a complete destruction of the tank, including the burnout or explosion of ammunition.
