Video: ISIS ATGM strikes Iraqi Abrams tank

Over the past couple days some dramatic footage of ISIS forces firing an ATGM at an Iraqi Army M1 Abrams tank near Mosul has been circulating the internet.  The footage appears to show the missile striking the rear of the turret, setting off a catastrophic explosion.  Little other information is available at this point concerning the incident.
