Syrria deploys Iranian Missles

Great to see that the terrorists are getting more of the advanced weapons. Now the Israelis will have to bombard the entire coast to knock out the launchers! This will be expensive in both cash and lives. What a waste.


TEL AVIV [MENL] -- Israel's military has assessed that Syria deployed an Iranian-origin cruise missile.

Military sources said Syria has obtained and deployed the Iranian version of the Chinese-origin C-802 anti-ship missile. They said the missile was used successfully by Hizbullah during the war against Israel in mid-2006.

'Syria has ordered scores, if not hundreds, of such missiles,' a military source said. 'The C-802 would keep the Israel Navy away from the Syrian coast in any future war.'

The C-802 employs a small turbojet engine and contains a range of 120 kilometers. The missile could be launched from aircraft, ships, submarines and land-based vehicles."
