The video was titled "The Tank Cemetery" and said it was recorded in Afrin, referring to the armored vehicles are Turkish and destroyed by People's Protection Units-YPG dominated by Democratic Union Party-PYD.

Verify-Sy platform draws the attention to the fact that the recording referred to above is old and not in Afrin.
