Video Claims To Show An Impressive Rebel Tank Strike In Syria

Free Syrian Army rebels are laying siege to Assad’s Taftanaz airport, which they claim he uses to mount helibourne assaults on rebel positions.

This video claims to have caught a direct hit from a rebel tank on a Syrian army tank at that airport. The rebel tank looks like it could be a T-54, possibly from one of the bases the FSA raided. There are a couple cuts, but there’s no doubt the video was all taken in the same place.

Clearly visible, next to the stricken tank, is a Russian-made Mi-8 helicopter, a favourite of the Assad regime.
