The event reportedly took place in Maarat al-Numan. Although anti tank guided missiles (ATGM) are usually minimally effective against infantry troops, as they are designed to pierce heavy armor, at least one soldier in this video may be hit directly by the munition while the others seek cover on the other side of the wall, directly in line with the missile’s path. The SAA likely took multiple severe casualties in this instance.
