Israel expressed concern on Saturday after reports emerged that Syrian president Bashar Assad may be losing control over military assets, including air defense base.
According to Israeli channel 10, concern is mounting in Israel over the possibility that Hizbullah will try to move sophisticated weaponry, including Scud missiles, from Syria to Lebanon to protect them in the event of Assad's downfall.
The channel obtained air footage of the scud missiles transport to unknown whereabouts.
The channel reporter Alon Ben-David said that the video increases the Israeli authorities fear over the possibility of the Syrian arms reaching organizations like Hizbullah.
The scud missiles are shown to be moved from the Syrian capital Damascus as the regime fears that its missile arsenal is being jeopardized.
“With Syria in the midst of an uprising, there is concern that Hizbullah might try to move the missiles into Lebanon to prevent them from being captured by rebels or militias,” the Jerusalem Post newspaper said.
The daily noted that the delivery of Scud missiles to Hizbullah would be a significant increase to the organization’s capabilities.
Syrian Scud Ds have a range of about 700 kilometers and can carry non-conventional warheads.
