The North Korean missile exploded in the center of the small town of Manbij north of Aleppo near the Turkish border. The missile badly damaged the market town, and killed at least 20 people were killed, injuring another 60.
A new DEBKAfile’s military sources report exposes that in May several new missiles were flown from North Korea and Iran to the Damascus military airfield and thence to Syria’s southeastern missile-testing site at Jebel Druze near the small town of Salakhand.
But during the Iranian, Syrian and North Korean secretly test-launch something went terribly wrong. One of the missiles strayed 350-400 km west of its projected course, indicating a problem with its guidance system. It exploded in the center of the small town of Manbij north of Aleppo near the Turkish border, killing at least 20 people, injuring 60 and badly damaging the market town.
The second missile exploded in mid-course in the South, over the north of the town of Abu Kamal and 200 kilometers from its launching site. Syrian military authorities closed the area around the stricken town of Manbij for more than a month, attributing the disaster to a gas explosion.
DEBKAfile’s military sources suggest it was a short-range ballistic missile (SRBM) propelled by solid fuel with a range of 800-1,000 kilometers and fitted with a warhead containing between 800 kilos and one ton of explosives. This would be an improvement on most of the three nations’ short-range missiles which are powered with liquid fuel.

Interesting stuff. The US President Barack Hussein Obama has a lot to explain God of the Bible in regards to his chosen «peace partners». And if they ever get it right, you can be sure of one thing.
The rockets aimed at Tel Aviv with a North Korean or Iranian nuclear war head will be stopped in mid air.
