This tank was hit back in Friday not yesterday as #ISIS said, it was operated by Al Fatemeyoon militia.
The tank got deeper into #ISIS territory with Shtora off expecting not to face anything but a 23MM gun.
The crew got surprised by an ATGM hit the upper turret section and knocked out many vision sights and the machine gun and set it on fire, another ATGM was fired into the side of the tank and injured the driver.
Then the commander and the gunner abandoned the tank without the diver. He was rescued after one hour.
After several hours and due to the opened hatch the fire reached the ammo inside the tank and exploded.
But the turret didn't went airborne. If the crew extinguished the fire up in the turret, the tank would've survived.
