Israel aggravates situation on Golan Heights

The Israeli army deployed the M270 MLRS launch systems in the Golan Heights on the border with Syria.

To your information:

The M270 Multiple Launch Rocket System (M270 MLRS) is an armored, self-propelled, multiple rocket launcher; a type of rocket artillery. The MLRS has been adopted by several NATO countries. Some 1,300 M270 systems have been manufactured in the United States and in Europe, along with more than 700,000 rockets. The production of the M270 ended in 2003, when a last batch was delivered to the Egyptian Army.

Israel developed its own rockets to be used in the “Menatetz”, an upgraded version of the M270 MLRS. The rockets are developed and manufactured by IMI Systems: Trajectory Corrected Rocket (TCS/RAMAM): In-flight trajectory corrected for enhanced accuracy, Romach: GPS-guided rocket with 35 km (22 mi) range, 20 kg (44 lb) warhead, and accuracy of less than 10 meters, and Ra’am Eithan (“Strong Thunder”): an improved version of the TCS/RAMAM (in-flight trajectory corrected for enhanced accuracy) with significantly decreased percentage of duds.
