Syria - Force 175 of the Assad army using katyusha rockets to pound towns near Daraa (16/11/12)
 Part of channel(s): Syria (current event)

Leaked cellphone footage from the SAA Force 175 using Katyusha/Grad or similar MRLS to pound the towns around Daraa. We all know rockets are far less accurate and more deadly than artillery, so what's wrong here? Did Assad run out of Artillery and mortar bombs?

Please, someone who supports Assad, please try and explain this.

  • Poor little Rasengan, he though SAA had run out of weapons and ammunition, while all the time we were holding them back.
    Now your little terrorists will dance to the music of Stalin's orgue.
    Tell us Rasagen why are you not posting videos about Palestine? Especially that Hamas are salafi muslims like you. Are you a coward?

  • Did Assad run out of Artillery and mortar bombs? The answer is No! But it's time to increase the heat on the rebels. Btw many weapons in the Syrian army's arsenal are not being used yet.

      Double standards. Bought western media will never say how many civilians died in attacks made by Israel. Yet they'll always talk about how Assad is killing civilians.

      There are tons of videos/pictures on Bestgore where anyone can see that FSA are the actual terrorists and executioners of innocent civilians, rapists of women and kids.

      Realy? Then tell me how would you react if Israel used BM-21s against Hamas? BM-21 used the same "Grad" rockets as Hamas shoots at them (and Israel has them as Syrians and Egyptians left them to Israelis when they found it more traditional to flee on foot). Would you say "ofcourse it's not that accurate but thats a war!". Or would you scream like a girl about "indiscriminate attacks"?

      Double standards indeed. Least around here in Finland press keeps constand score on casualties caused by IAF air attacks.

      Double standard exist in what is considered "indiscriminate". If Israel hits some Hamas leader and kills him along with his family. That is usualy called "Indiscriminate" as "innocent civilians" died. If Assad uses BM-21s on some town then it is "just war" and you ignore casualties as terrorists.

    • @Sjumppanen Assad is not fighting with Civillians but with Rebels from Afghanistan, Libya, Qatar Saudi etc etc! They are fighting from the inside of cities so That's why Assad can't use The huge weapons Otherways All cities and all civillians would be hit harder, the only things Assad's army can use know are jets , tanks and Infantry, but no Surface tosurface rockets.. Assad is the good guy if you compare him with the rest of the presidents.

    • @stillstand keeping civilian deaths to a minimal should be one of the highest priorities to any Army while on operations. If they want to keep the people on the their side that is. The Syrian army has gone past the point of caring if they kill FSA or civilians. That is far worse than 'shit happens'.

    • @jaxkf101 you said it: "should be". It is not the highest prioritiy to no army. In the end the highest priority is the successful mission - to wipe out the enemy. Morality can be a hindrance.

  • Explain this?

    You mean explain why you claim they are shelling towns?

    Simple. It's because you are a lying propagandist!

    Assuming this is even in Syria (a big assume) And assuming this is in any way current (another big assume) then most likely they are interdicting enemy force concentrations and supply lines.

    There is no military value in shelling towns.

      Every nation on earth controls its votes. The systems may look and behave differently, and sure richer nations may appear to offer a superior democracy, but only appear to do so with all the money they pour into the advertising, money which could be spent on the people and needy in their own nations is instead spent to forward their own political careers.

  • Rockets are an area weapon but used in a military context are very accurate to attack areas defined in hundreds of metres radius.

    They are also expensive, so only used if there is credible intelligence that there is a concentration of terrorist forces in a specific location.

    This contrasts totally with the terrorist use of rockets where individual rockets are fired off after being propped up on a rock, or at best fired off some rickety pick-up. The target is literally city sized, so it's only More..

      You do realise that MRLS is a specific system. If you are referring to weapon systems of that general type them use the acronym MRL (multiple rocket launcher).

      Also, MRL:s have been around a bit longer than anyone has considered shooting down those rockets.

      Or if you were referring to M270 witch is also known as MLRS then you should know that there is no reason to believe that Iron Dome or Patriot would have any difficulties in shooting those rockets down. It just is that you m More..

  • I'll explain. It's simple really. There is something going on in Syria called a war. In this war certain towns are infested by scum. And what do you do with hostile scum? You kill it. Most civilians leave such places of intense combat. Best of luck to the FAA.

    First Assad is no Angel but he is a much better option than the FSA
    because
    The FSA is filled with Iranian, Pakistani, Iraqi, Saudi and others as part of an Al Quaida scheme to overthrow any progressive arab governments.
    These people are backed by the Taliban who will rule under Sharia code after the Downfall.
    These are the same sects that took over Libya and they are trying to repeat their success there.
    The only difference is that the western world is waking up and no longer More..

  • this is just training, i saw them using much large weapons.

    And by the way this kind of rockets are used to destroy the enemy air defense systems like the Russian S-300 or the U.S. Patriot Air and Missile Defense System.

    you know that the war is on the edge between Turkey and Syria
    and they may need to destroy their air defense systems ,so they can use the Syrian mig fighter jet over Turkey
