Deputy IDF Chief of Staff Maj.-Gen. Yair Naveh said on Tuesday that despite the ongoing upheaval in Syria, President Bashar Assad is still in control of Syria's advanced weaponry, including its chemical weapons arsenal. According to Naveh Syria has spent $3 billion in recent years on advanced Russian surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems and the proliferation of these system needs to concern not just Israel, says Naveh, but also the entire world. Naveh also said that today Hezbollah has 60000 rockets and missiles, including a number of M600s that have superior range and a high level of accuracy.
