According to the broadcast report, at least 110 Fajr missiles and more than 300 Fateh missiles, all equipped with warheads containing toxic thionyl chloride, were delivered to Al Qusayr nearly two weeks ago from the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center (SSRC) in Masyaf, Syria.

4 Killed in Reported Israeli Attack on Iranian Targets in Syria

The above report might account for the repeated Israeli air strikes on military targets in Masyaf.

This past weekend, four Syrian soldiers were killed and a fifth was injured in a reported attack on Masyaf as well as the Shayrat Air Base and the Jabal area near Latakia. The attacks were aimed at weapons and ammunition caches as well as at an air defense battery.
