In the Syrian Homs destroyed refugee accommodation center

Head of the General Staff of the Syrian Armed Forces Ali Abdullah Ayub told RIA journalist "News"that militants fired mortars at Homs suburb, destroying the refugee accommodation center.

“During an intensive mortar shelling of the Teir-Maal district in the suburbs of Homs, the militants of the Ahrar-Ash-Sham terrorist group destroyed the refugee accommodation center. There are victims, their number is specified. At least six improvised high-explosive mines fired from mortars were hit, ”he said.

Ayub noted that it was not the first time when terrorists opened fire on positions of government troops and at the same time “shoot at random and cover peaceful objects”.

“More than 100 improvised mines, such as those that destroyed the refugee accommodation center, were discovered by our units in a cache with ammunition in the vicinity of Dar El-Kibir. Nine improvised mortar barrels made from sawn out malfunctioning 100 mm guns from tank T-55, ”he said.

According to Ayub, the militants of the “Dzhebhat en-Nusra” and “Ahrar-Ash-Sham” groups use home-made mortars and mines due to the insufficient number of short-barreled artillery pieces.

“The high degree of barrel wear and the absence of even the simplest fire control devices make it impossible for the ISIL militants to use the artillery and mortars precisely,” he added.

    Запугивание и "бомбежек" мирного населения -это черта терроризма.

          Look at the shelling of the Donetsk and Lugansk republics, the technique is the same, and Afghanistan and Libya are all like a star-striped carbon copy.

    Another question is why is the refugee center located on the line of operations? Shelling is part, and if the provocation is like a Lebanese one?

    Террористов обучает США, так что все закономерно: "Запугивание и бомбежки мирного населения -это черта терроризма."
    Если в мире найдутся террористы, которые действуют хотя бы немного иначе, то знайте - они не спонсируются США. А так... "show must go on"

    Yes, a mortar from a tank barrel is very mobile. The wall thickness is 20 times greater than the normal factory. Safety margin from rupture of the barrel, of course crazy. And it’s difficult to quickly wash off.
    Soon they will pour guns and shoot cores. And gunpowder is old-fashioned: sulfur, coal, ... To extract saltpeter from urine. Because they have a lot of urine from bombing.

    Not only terrorists. Remember the Nazi Nazis and their henchmen, see what is happening in the Donbass, how the civilian population is suffering from ukrovoyak and pravosekov

    .. the absence of even the simplest fire control devices makes impossible the targeted use of artillery and mortars by ISIS fighters ..

    Sell ​​them, through Afghan mujahideen, a batch of artillery sights with built-in radio beacons.
