A technical, with its crew fully exposed on top, gets slammed by a TOW missile, while driving down a road south of Aleppo, Syria.
Members of the 13th Coastal Division are famous for taking TOW shots at any target of opportunity that presents itself. A regime truck, kitted out to launch missiles, driving down the road with its crew fully exposed, makes itself an easy target. Before they ever hear or see the missile, they find themselves turned into human pop-tarts, as they are launched from the impact of the missile strike.
The 13th Coastal Division is a unit within the Free Syrian Army. Consisting of 10 different groups, they were founded in 2013. It is also worth noting that they were one of the first groups vetted by the CIA to receive the BGM-71 TOW missile.
