"A tank caught fire around 5 a.m. The soldiers did not manage to put the fire out in time, so we began to move the nearby vehicles because they were with full ammunition. Later the ammunition of the first tank exploded. As a result, few soldiers were wounded. They got burns and concussions while trying to put out the tank. When the first shell exploded, the blast threw them away from the tank," a soldier said.
