Oh looky here, the brigands/bandits are busy at work.
You must be blind because all I see are peaceful protesters! :)
Iran if it continues to support the Syrian government will have to deploy Sepah or Special Takavar Forces, the 23 Air Assault or 55 paratroop divisions or elements of the Qods force to train the Syrians to secure a broader grid perimeter outside of Damascus and hold it. The FSA terrorists and their US/Zionist mentors are now getting desperate and so they are providing SAMs and heavy calibre weapons to target civilian planes. It is a relatively simple operation to establish an airtight defensive perimeter. The US and Russian occupation forces did that Baghram and Kabul in Afghanistan, backed up by at ready gunships and aircover. The Syrians should be asking for KA-50 attack helicopters and SU-25 Frogfoots to deal with this new terror threat. The existing Syrian Mi-24 Hinds if deployed in large numbers with ECMs and flares would do the job too. The US occupation forces established a perimeter around Baghdad and all major Iraqi cities. Russian perimeter at Kabul, Baghram and later at Grozny was very effective despite the rebels having SAMs and heavy Dshk 12.7 mm AA guns. Syrian military is getting better and learning on the job from all the video evidence available.The Syrians will have to establish mobile forces and call-up reserves. The distance to Damascus airport is around 30 kms and mostly densely populated neighborhoods. Sniper teams on high rise apartments would be sufficient as well. The FSA terrorists are civilian murdering cowards and would not stand a chance if there is a professional security corridor. Iran must protect its civilian assets.
'Practice makes perfect'. It seems nothing dangerous here and its all training of course.
LOL! They shouldn't be there in the first place!
Shows the nature of these people who claim to be rebels. Clearly a civilian plan and they are shooting at it...what kind of Muslims are they? Their own prophet would scold them for their behavior.
The aircraft is an Iranian Air Force Boeing 747 transport plane. IRIAF has half a dozen of the 747s in transport and tanker configurations.
Mark, the fact that these guys are firing at all, shows their lack of military training. The bullets are falling laughably close, probably on the heads of civilians. What the Iranian 747 crew needs to be worried about is Syrian rebel access to MANPADS, as well as any ZSU-23's in the area, and people who know how to use them. Even a skilled RPG gunner would be worrisome. A 7.62x39 slug won't do much of anything to a massive 747 on final approach, extreme luck aside. An engine suddenly failing catastrophically would. Especially if the plan is fully packed with arms and personnel, which I am sure it is.
LoL! Yeah right, beats the official term, 'Harmless activists'! I can't figure out why they would want to perform this sort of Brigand tactics on their own country (that is, if they are native Syrians) or (if they are from another Arab country) then why do this to a fellow Arab country. Why don't they stand infront of the White House and pull this crap, alternatively opt to bother the 1 percent in the US that has imposed the concept of debt slavery on the US nation and the rest of the world by ways of the IMF.
No military markings are visible on the aeroplane in the video. It could be an airliner.
It's military. The Iranians don't really paint they're 747/707 transport/tankers in a military fashion. http://www.iiaf.net/aircraft/tankerstranspt/images/747tanker_jpg.jpg
