Syria: Scud Missile Use Continuing, NATO Chief Says

The Syrian government has been launching Scud missiles within the past few days, NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said at a Dec. 21 news conference, Xinhua reported. Rasmussen said he considered it an act of a desperate regime approaching collapse. The missiles have not hit Turkey, he said, but the threat posed by their launch is why NATO allies have decided to deploy Patriot missiles in Turkey for defensive purposes. Syria has denied using Scud missiles, but the regime indeed possesses a variety of missiles, some of which could be used to deliver chemical weapons.
