Steve, see what you have done! ISIS uses Ipad to launch rockets

A group of Syrian rebels battling President Bashar al-Assad’s forces have been pictured using an Apple iPad device to ensure the firing angle of a rocket launcher is correct.

Militants loyal to the hardline Jaish al-Islam group were photographed using the tablet to test the firing position of crude howitzer artillery pieces during street battles in the capital Damascus.

It is believed that the rebels use maps and intelligence reports to locate the regime troops’ positions, before employing the high-tech device to give a precision reading of the weapon’s firing angle in the hope it will boost the accuracy of the missiles.
