More Unexploded Cluster Submunitions in Syria.

PTAB 2.5M’s and their associated RBK-250 dispenser. In Marea, which was hit again after the December 12 strike. Fortunately for the town’s residents the pilot’s release timing for the second strike was not quite right, and most of the submunitions landed in a wheat field beside the town. 

Each and every item in the photographs above was made in Russia during the late Soviet period. President Bashar al-Assad’s government has steadfastly denied using cluster munitions, and the Kremlin has denied providing cluster munitions to Syria.
