Syria regime firing Scud-type missiles at rebels: NATO
AFP, Friday 21 Dec 2012


The Syrian regime has fired Scud-type missiles against rebel forces in what NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen on Friday said was an act of desperation.

"I can confirm that we have detected the launch of Scud-type missiles; we strongly regret that act," Rasmussen said. "I consider it an act of a desperate regime approaching collapse." A source close to NATO said the latest launches were detected on Thursday.
