Syria has one of the largest chemical weapons stockpiles in the world, and its rocket can strike any area in Israel, IDF Deputy Chief of Staff Yair Naveh said on Sunday night.

Speaking in Jerusalem's Old City at a ceremony in memory of IDF soldiers that died in the First Lebanon War, Naveh added his voice to a growing chorus of Israeli anti-Syria rhetoric. If he could, Naveh said, Assad would do to Israeli civilians what he is currently doing to Syrian civilians.
