Quotes

As redditor 'TroubleEntendre' points out , the cannon rests on pneumatic tires, which have some give. Presumably "the recoil pushes them back and down, and then they bounce the whole contraption back up into the air a split second later."
"When we sat in the ambulance together, I thought he was going to live so I felt a bit better."
"We are working on the front-lines and fighting Assad's forces while we are fasting. We become tired, hungry, and thirsty but we remain steadfast against all odds and continue our fasting" an FSA fighter said
"We had a big window. I looked through it and saw it coming towards us. It dropped the barrel and was gone. "
