Syria’s ‘Dirty Dozen’: The Sakr

In a major new investigation, AOAV shines a spotlight on twelve of the worst explosive weapons in Syria, investigating some of the biggest and most dangerous bombs, shells, and rockets. Weapons whose wide-area effect are tearing civilians’ lives apart.

The Sakr rockets used in Syria are designed like the Grad rockets but with cluster munition warheads containing as many as 98 DPICM sub-munitions (based on the assumption that this is the Type 36 Sakr).
