Ya'alon: No sign Syria might use WMDs against Israel

There is no sign that the Syrian regime might use chemical weapons against Israel, Vice Prime Minister Moshe Ya'alon said Sunday in an interview with Israel Radio.
"Over the past decades Syria has armed itself with missiles and chemical weapons," Ya'alon said, adding that due to the state's effective deterrence, the Syrians have thus far not used their weapons against Israel.
Ya'alon declined to comment on a Sunday Times report that special IDF units are operating in Syria to locate the chemical weapons stockpiles.
