Syrian President Bashar Assad's army fired half of the country's missile arsenal, including Scud missiles, at rebels, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said on Sunday.

He noted that Syria has so far destroyed its chemical weapons manufacturing and mixing apparatus, as well as related munitions.

"We said we wouldn't let advanced [Syrian] arms reach hostile forces and, 'according to foreign sources,' we kept our word," he added.
