BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – A former general from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) told Sputnik Arabic on Saturday morning that all of Israel is within range of Syria’s guided missiles.

“Syria’s missiles enjoy high capabilities and have been stockpiled in large numbers as a deterrence against a massive war in the Middle-East region,” General Reza Shariqi told Sputnik Arabic.

In a jab at Israel’s air defenses, Sharqi told Sputnik Arabic that Syria’s missiles could overwhelm their Iron Dome system.

“Our strategic missiles can reach any target in the occupied territories,” he continued.

General Shariqi said that Syria has stockpiled its missiles in secret places to remain safe against the Israeli attacks.

The Syrian general’s comments come just days after Syria’s Ambassador to the United Nations Bashar Al-Ja’afari issued a statement that threatened a tit-for-tat attack on the Tel Aviv Airport.

Al-Ja’afari said, “isn’t time now for the UN Security Council to stop the Israeli repeated aggressions on the Syrian Arab Republic territories?”

“Or is it required to draw the attention of the war-makers in this Council by exercising our legitimate right to defend ourselves and respond to the Israeli aggression on Damascus International Civil Airport in the same way on Tel Aviv Airport?” he added.

Bad news : IDF can shoot down anything 2,400km from Israel and has anything it takes to make all non-desert areas in the MENA becoming radioactive parking lots and, if they signed the conventions on chemical weapons, they didn’t when it comes to bio-weapons and how funny, are one of the world leaders in bio-technologies.
Still want to fück with them? Yes? Well, better shoot a bullet in your own head, it’d avoid collateral damages and populations to suffer uselessly because you’re a moron.

Israel is fragile and will crumble in 1 day if Syria decides to launch its missiles at Tel Aviv, Haifa and Ashdod and other big cities. Within 1 hour of a full scale attack the UNSC will be screaming on behalf of Israel for a ceasefire, just like they did when Hezbollah threw a few bottle rockets at Tel Aviv. The Israeli’s should bow down and thank Assad for having the self control to hold back annihilation of Israel.

Assadists do not like hearing the truth. If it gets to a real war, then SAA will be overwhelmed, especially now that most real combat forces are deployed in the north west. Israeli military industries are world class, syria does not evrn has any except maybe for forbidden chemic warfare and the odd ammo factory.
