Israel pulls missiles to Syria border

Israel pulls missiles to Syria border


Israel has deployed Iron Dome missiles near its northern border with Syria, Jerusalem Post reports. One of the batteries was moved to the Haifa area.

According to the daily, escalating conflict in Syria forced the Israeli military to take a decisive step amid concerns over the security of Syria’s chemical weapons arsenal which could be leaked to Islamist insurgents.

Israeli Vice Prime Minister Silvan Shalom earlier threatened Syria with missile strikes if it didn’t keep a close watch on its chemical weapons.

He said such a development would be “a crossing of all red lines that would require a different approach, including even preventive operations.”
