Israel says it's threatened by Syrian chemical weapons
Israel's deputy military chief has warned that Syria's large chemical weapons stocks could be trained on Israel.
In remarks delivered Sunday night at a memorial for fallen soldiers in Jerusalem, Major General Yair Naveh said Syria has the largest arsenal of chemical weapons in the world and if they had the chance would "treat us the same way they treat their own people.''
Syria has not declared its chemical weapons stocks so their exact size is not known. Among other things, Israel is worried that such weapons could fall into the hands of its enemies should the Syrian regime crumble.
