Cassette "Tochka-U" in Syria covered another oil depot of pro-Turkish militants


On Sunday March 14, an "unidentified party" attacked trucks carrying crude and refined oil in Al-Humraan, in the pro-Turkish-controlled Aleppo province of Syria.


An oil refinery complex of combat groups controlled by Ankara in the area of ​​the Tarkhin settlement was also attacked. Apparently, the Tochka-U tactical missile system with a 9N123K-1 cluster warhead was used.

There is also evidence that the fire was fired from the Kuweiris airfield area. Turkish artillery fired back at the Syrians.



These are not the first attacks on oil targets by pro-Turkish forces. So, on March 5, missile strikes were destroyed two hundred trucks with stolen Syrian oil. Through this settlement, fuel is transported by combat groups to northeastern Syria near the Syrian-Turkish border.

According to Middle East security analyst Seth Franzman, the purpose of such actions by Russia is to demonstrate that Moscow and Damascus are closely watching Turkish-backed militants in Syrian territory, as well as the Turkish army itself in Aleppo.

    The occupied lands have already begun to be exploited, and it finally dawned on the Syrians that the aggressor must be destroyed. Oh, and slow-witted. No wonder they say: "With whom you will lead, from that you will gain."

    The name "Cluster" Tochka-U "" means "9N123K - a cluster warhead as part of 9M79K (9M79-1K) missiles, containing 50 9N24 fragmentation warheads (weighing 7,45 kg each, mass of A-IX-20 type explosives - 1,45, 316 kg, 482 fragments). The mass of the warhead is 15,8 kg, the number of fragments is 20 thousand. And nothing that the Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM) is an international treaty that prohibits the use, transfer and accumulation of cluster munitions, that is, munitions that scatter multiple explosive submunitions ("bomblets"), each weighing no more than XNUMX kg. It turns out that we violated this convention twice by transferring (selling) this ammunition to Syria and allowed (or ourselves) to use it.

      The Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM) is an international treaty that prohibits the use, transfer and accumulation of cluster munitions, that is, munitions that disperse multiple explosive submunitions ("bomblets"), each weighing less than 20 kg ... The convention was prepared on May 30, 2008 year in Dublin, its signing began on December 3, 2008 in Oslo. Entered into force on August 1, 2010, 6 months after it was ratified by 30 countries. As of September 2013, 113 countries signed the agreement, 84 ratified it.

      The first "Points" were delivered to Syria in the mid-80s. The first modern "Points" went to the troops of the USSR in 89g. How many complexes and ammunition for them were delivered to Syria by the USSR and Russia is unknown!
      So what's the problem then?

        This is not known to mere mortals. Everything is in the archives of the USSR Ministry of Defense and the Russian Federation.

          the Tochka-U complexes are being removed from the armament of the Russian army and replaced by Iskander missiles, and instead of disposing of missiles of this type, it is easier to use them for their intended purpose and usefully in Syria.

          It is logical

      And nothing.
      Cluster munitions are calmly used by the United States and its allies.
      If we violated something belatedly, it was only that which we violated many times before. repeat

      The US deputy secretary of defense added that replacing cluster bombs with other types of munitions could "take too long."
