    those rockets have done serious damage to the war effort of SAA. they must be found and destoyed at last. their mobility is a problem but its vital to the war.

      I remember the scenes of Grad-shelling in Donbass. The launchers change positions very fast , just when the missile leaves the tube , the launcher drives away.

      • testera

        Exactly. Mobile launchers tend to be mobile. There are a lot of them too, because trucks with tubes aren’t really expensive.

  • kraaiiii

    it was quite peaceful after SAA outflanked FSA and left at tanf plan to rest, and now the FSA are looking for conflict. Clearly a attempt to draw the SAA into conflict and thus bombing by the US again

  • Daniel Castro

    Russia should just carpet bomb this FSA territory and tell USA to fk off.

    • Justin Ryan

    The US with their US based PMCs acting as the rebels again with their bogus FSA group (Southern Front) . Thi is all brought to you by the Coalition of Resource Thieves ,trying to destabilize the Middle East since 1949 .

    Since FSA is in a hit and run mode, why is the front line inverted towards the airfield that was attacked? Grad rockets have a range of 20 Kms, the front line should be 30-40 kms from the airfield, otherwise do not make your equipment succeptible to easy attacks.

    HIMARS?

    Amazing how much freedom of operation the pentagon has given itself in syria without a legal declaration of war.

    Russia must locate this missile launching points and destroy their have the capacity to do that.This is definitely himars USA missiles launch by USA and Russia is aware.WW3 of not attack is it only Russians who should avoid WW3.Fire to fire We don’t have respect for Jesus the God but only for mankind who doesn’t have a everlasting life.Suppress USA goals Russia and the USA=satan will depart and peace will come to Syria for Syrians not ISIS or FSA.

    One day, those launchers will disappear. It will come at a time of choosing, not one driven by reaction. The fact that they used them for the first time to my knowledge to an, eh… so what effect, tells a lot. Now everybody knows they are out there and will be looking for them. A good day to all.
