Another Turkish Sabra tank has been destroyed due to clashes with ISIS and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) near Al-Bab in Syria.

The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) reportedly destroyed Turkish Sabra tank (Turkish-Israeli modification of the American M60) and Cobra armoured vehicle near Al-Bab in Syria.

The Sabra is an extensively upgraded M60 Patton tank developed by Israel Military Industries. MkII version of this upgrade package was used in one of Turkish Army’s modernization programs. The Sabra is known as the M60T in Turkish service.

Recently ISIS propagandists have released pictures of the strikes on Turkish Leopard-2 main battle tanks in Syria.
