According to a report by Lebanese media, Syria has issued a very serious warning to Israel – bomb Syria again and SCUD missiles will rain down on Israel.
According to the report by al-Diyar, the message was delivered via Russian officials. It quite clearly stated that, if Israel attacks Syria again, Syria will respond with deadly force, including the use of SCUD missiles against Israeli targets.
The report stated that Syria’s position is, if Israel bombs Syrian military targets, Israeli military targets will be the recipient of Syrian SCUD missiles. If Israel attacks civilian targets, Syria will target Haifa’s port and petrochemical plant.
Al-Diyar reports that Syria has a cache over around 800 SCUD missiles and that it has prepared four of them for launch in retaliation for any further Israeli incursion.
For its part, Israel, bolstered by the fact that the United States has traditionally been satisfied to treat the Zionist settler state as its own 51st, have dismissed the threats as a bluff. The fact that Israel is always ready to fight and die to the last American is the main reason it has been able to provoke, murder, and commit genocide for the last several decades with virtually no consequences. However, if the reports can be believed, the Syrians may very well be serious this time around.
Indeed, some have even pointed out that SCUD missiles are largely antiquated weaponry and, while they may not be able to penetrate Israel’s Arrow or Iron Dome systems, the SCUDs themselves may be a cover for some type of more advanced weaponry that Israel is not expecting.
Because of its ability to bully and provoke and then run to its protector America whenever anyone retaliates, Israel is actually quite likely to test Syrian resolve in the future. This time, however, we certainly hope the Trump administration holds true to “America First” and lets Israel fight its own battle.
