A YPG tank becomes a rolling inferno after taking a direct hit by an Islamic State anti tank guided missile. The effects of the strike were not immediately clear, but soon the surviving crew members bail as the vehicle continues forward. Then, repeated fiery explosions occur as the stored ammunition begins to cook off inside the vehicle. According to various tweets, this was reported to be the YPG’s last remaining main battle tank in the Afrin fight.
