Israeli media have reported that Syria test-launched a series of surface-to-surface missiles in the past few months.
According to Israeli newspapers, the test launch was detected by Israel's radar systems, including the Oren Yarok and Oren Adir radars.
The report added that Syria is believed to have some 1,000 models of Scud missiles with a range of 300 to 700 kilometers.
The country also possesses SS-21 missiles with a range of 80 kilometers but with a much higher precision than the Scuds, it said.
