1. Additional Information

The author in the OP referred to the Iranian Falaq-2 rocket system. Here's the Wikipedia entry. It has a 10 KM range, and is similar in design.

Here is an image of a Falaq-2 launch system from Iran:



The 333mm-diameter looks right though. Setting about finding additional Iranian-made 333mm rockets, the Falaq-2 looked about the right size.


Iranian-made Falaq-2

Hence, the system fielded in Syria could be an Iranian-made version or a Syrian copy modified for purpose.

The Falaq-2 is an unguided surface-to-surface rocket. It weighs 255 Kgs, including a 120-Kg-warhead. Its maximum range is reported to be about 10 Kms.
