Foreign experts: Syria secretly built 30 underground bunkers to enable rocket attack before IAF can destroy them

Foreign experts: Syria secretly built 30 underground bunkers to enable
rocket attack before IAF can destroy them
Dr. Aaron Lerner Date: 30 April, 2007

Yediot Ahronot correspondent Arieh Egozi reports in today's edition [page 9]
that foreign experts say 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. According to Egozi last February Israeli
surveillance noted a Syrian launching of an improved Scud that is more
accurate, can cause greater damage and is more difficult to intercept,
terming it "a reason for great concern."

According to foreign experts, the chemical weapons heads for the rockets are
stored in another location.

According to Israeli sources, Egozi reports, Syria recently received 100
C802 Chinese anti-ship cruise missiles from Iran.
