At least 1000 tanks, armored vehicles destroyed in 7 years: military source
 (Zaman Al Wasl)- At least 1000 tanks and armored vehicles were destroyed by rebels in the seven-year-old war, a military source told Zaman al-Wasl Saturday.

The source has also supplied Zaman al-Wasl with Satellite images showing part of the destroyed tanks and armored which gathered in '623 Tanks Factory' near Qatina Lake, 22 km (13 miles) southwest of Homs city.

The images were taken on March 28. 

The base, which also known as the 'Vehicles Cemetery', was a detention and torture center, according to the source.

Several offensives on the northern countryside of Hama province were launched from the Tanks base.

More than 119,000 pro-regime forces have been killed, including 62,000 troops, tens of thousands of loyalist militiamen, and 1,556 fighters from Hezbollah, according to an estimate by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The Alawites-dominated areas are still the main manpower supply for Bashar al-Assad's regime. The mourning posters and statements have been sweeping the streets and social media pages.

More than 470,000 people have been killed and 12 millions have been driven from their homes since Syria's revolution erupted in 2011.
