Syria test-launched a Scud D missile in the past few weeks, Channel 2 revealed on Monday. The Scud D missile has a splitting warhead, a design geared at 'confusing' the Israeli Arrow missile defense system that would have difficulty targeting the destructive piece of the warhead and not the decoys. Meanwhile, Channel 10 reported that Washington reiterated to Syria that the country must cease hosting terror groups and purge itself of Hamas elements currently enjoying refuge in the country.
