Iranian, Iraqi Forces Are Manufacturing Rocket Launchers In Syria’s Deir Ezzor – Report

Forces affiliated with the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) were manufacturing single barrel rocket launchers in the eastern Syrian governorate of Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on June 4.

According to the London-based group, the launchers are being manufactured in a military base located in the outskirts of the government-held town of al-Mayadin in southern Deir Ezzor. Iranian military experts are present there.

“The manufacturing process started a few days ago, dozens of rocket launchers for Iranian-made surface-to-surface rockets have been made already,” the SOHR’s report reads.

IRGC-affiliated forces and PMU factions maintain a strong presence in the southern countryside of Deir Ezzor in order to counter ISIS and guard the Syrian-Iraqi border.

Last month, a large Iranian weapons shipment arrived in the region coming from Iraq. The shipment contained “short-range” rockets, machine guns as well as ammunition.

The ongoing military buildup in southern Deir Ezzor is most likely directed against ISIS. The terrorist group’s cells launch attacks on western and southern Deir Ezzor on a regular basis. The terrorists also move along the Syrian-Iraqi border.

These missiles need guidance and better target selection

I’m familiar with a report that states both groups are producing missiles near Kilis, Turkey. Has Erdogan changed sides?

Si bien es importante que las IRGC y las PMU fabriquen lanzacohetes para poder contrarrestar a las células de ISIS, también deberían utilizar municiones merodeadores y drones suicidas que IRAN fácilmente les podría proporcionar.

The fact is CIA supplies Arab dictatorships with Chinese-made novelty toys popular in the Mormon community to enhance their Sheiks’ enjoyment of r-pe and torture of their citizens. Somehow this pertains to me, how?
