Syrian will retaliate with launcing Scud missiles against Israeli military objects if the Israeli military continues to deliver airstrikes on Syrian territory, the Russian state-run news agency “Sputnik” reported, citing a message delivered via “Russian mediators.”
“According to the message, delivered via Russian mediators, attacks on Syrian military objects will be met with Scud missiles launched at Israeli military (IDF) bases. If Israel attacks civilian infrastructure, Syrian missiles will be fired at Israel’s Haifa port and petrochemical plant. The missiles will be launched without any prior notice, the statement said,” Sputnik’s article reads.
The Syrian statement followed a series of Israeli aerial attack against targets inside Syria earlier this month which led to growing diplomatic and military tensions in the region.
