What you are about to watch is an actual event. The video was filmed by the Israeli military. It is a fully armored Syrian tank being hit by an Israeli laser-guided, steel-penetrating, phosphorous-filled "hand held" rocket. The rocket is small, very portable and is a tightly controlled weapon; each one is accounted for when they are checked out and back in. There must be no fewer than two soldiers present to verify the use of these rockets, and one witness must be a senior officer with a minimum of 10 years military service. The program and names of those involved are kept secret for obvious reason.
The Syrian tank was headed for one of Israel's settlements. There were four more tanks one mile to the rear of this tank. It would seem that after this one was destroyed, the others decided to scram. You can hear the ammunition inside the tank going off after the initial strike. As would be expected, all crew members were sent to Allah.
This event did not make the news, but it is an everyday event for Israeli forces. Unlike us, Israel does not allow for embed reporters or film crews not associated with the military.
Israel does this for their survival, not for the entertainment of the 24/7 cable news networks.
