Syria: Satellite photos show 13 destroyed targets at Army base

(Damascus)  So despite the so called fantastic anti-aircraft missiles systems that Syria has in place, which apparently shot down almost 71 out of 103 US/British and French missiles the other week, on Sunday it was found lacking when somebody decided to strike 3 military targets inside Syria which were:

  • The 47th Brigade base in the southern Hama district.
  • A military facility in north-western Hama.
  • A facility north of the Aleppo International Airport.

At the 47th base at least 13 buildings were struck and destroyed along with 200 newly delivered surface to surface missiles which had just arrived from Iran, analysts presume they would have been used by Iran (or its acolytes) in any future attack on the Jewish state.

The huge ensuring secondary explosion was not only caught on film
But was captured by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre as a minor 2.6 magnitude earthquake.  As mentioned above two other sites were struck . The initial response from Syria was they had been attacked by the US and UK from inside Jordan. However the duty rumour is it was IDF F15i aircraft using the GPS-guided Small Diameter Bomb (SDB) one of the most accurate bombs in the world. It has the same penetration capabilities as a normal 900-kg. bomb, although it has only 22.7 kg. of explosives.  Due to its pop out wings it has a stand off range of around 68 miles. The F15 can carry 20 of them.
