US officials: Syria utilizing Iranian missiles

The Syrian military in recent days has fired at least four Iranian-made ballistic missiles at rebel positions, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday, raising concerns the Assad regime may be resorting to more lethal weaponry to maintain power.
According to the report, the Syrian military has increased its utilization of Iranian-made Fateh-110s missiles, suggesting the Islamic Republic is stepping up its support for Syrian President BasharAssad.
"It certainly shows more aggressive action by the Syrian regime, aided by the Iranians," a senior US official was quoted by the Journal as saying.
"It could be a sign of new tactics or desperation," he said.
