Video: Rockets from a Mosque

June 17, 2011

First, the video posted by the UK Telegraph on their Youtube account - NATO-released aerial footage of "Pro-Gaddafi forces us[ing] mosque to launch missiles." Says it's in Zlitan, western Libya (i.e. government control, except to some extent, lately)

I agree that seems to be a mosque, there are people out front, and there are missiles/rrockets flying out of it, and blowing up targets a mile or so away down the road. What's not clear is who's in there, what they're shooting at, and why.

I invite comments until I can add more.

  1. It's a thermal image. All it shows is something hot being fired. It could be a mortar, which would fit in with the relatively short range of the shot
