The Islamic State released a video Thursday purportedly showing its fighters firing antitank guided missiles at Turkish positions, possibly destroying what appears to be two self-propelled artillery pieces and a tank.
According to the video description, the attack occurred on the Turkey-Syria border. Once a conduit for foreign fighters, Turkey has since tried to limit the illegal traffic of people and equipment flowing into the region after facing pressure from the United States and other Western countries.
The missile fired in the footage is Russian-made Metis-M ATGM.
Whoever supports the ISIS is '' controversial'', but whose weapons the ISIS is using is obvious.
