Syria: Just how accurate that US strike was

(Damascus)  Shayrat Airbase home to the Syrian Air Force 50th Air Brigade located in Homs. It has two runways and around 40 hardened aircraft shelters. It was also one of the targets of the US strike carried out last month. The latest satellite photos show exactly how accurate that strike was, by revealing that the US took out out the radars for the Syrian air defence system prior to the full attack, which kind of rubbishes the Russian and Syrian claims that they shot down 71 out of the 103 missiles launched.

The straight flush radar is the eyes for the SA-6 Gainful batteries which inflicted a heavy toll on Israeli aircraft during the Yom Kippur War.

The accuracy of the missile strikes against the radar vehicles  (As seen above)  will give the Russians (As well as the Syrians and Iranians) pause to thought.
