Syria has built a huge underground compound that includes 30 steel reinforced concrete bunkers, production facilities, development labs and command posts. This new “rocket city” has missiles that can cover the entire area of Israel. In contrast to mobile deployment systems that are easy prey to air attacks, the bunker system is designed to enable Syria to launch many missiles against Israel before the IAF can take them out.
Syria has some 200 Scud B, 60 Scud C and an unknown quantity of North Korean made 700 kilometer range Scud D’s. Syria recently received 100 C802 Chinese anti-ship cruise missiles from Iran.
