BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:10 P.M.) – Video footage (below) has emerged showing the Syrian Army deploying a new never before seen weapon system against Islamic State forces in southern Damascus.

The weapon system (shown at time 1:29 onwards) in question appears to be a DIY-modified UR-77 explosive line charge thrower mounted on the back of truck. Its official designation is not known to Al-Masdar News.

Rebel forces operating in Daraa province have been seen deploying a very similar weapon system against the Syrian Army.

Since the beginning of the Syrian conflict, government forces have developed unique artillery systems – such as the Goulan series of IRAM launchers – that greatly increase the firepower available to brigade-level formations.

Deuteronomy 7:2 and when the LORD your God has delivered them over to you and you have defeated them, then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy.

Too much fake news continues to spread in the Middle East thanks to Zionist
interference. Death to the Jews.
