From Gateway Pundit:From the NY Daily News:Israel issued the threat after the news this week that a chemical weapons explosion in Halab, Syria killed dozens of Iranians and Syrians. The explosion at the Syrian test site spread chemical weapons including sarin gas.
Politicians in Israel said yesterday they were not picking a fight with their neighbor, but pledged to forcefully retaliate if chemical warheads come screaming across its shared border.Syria was arming Scud-C missles with mustard gas?
"We will not attack them first. But if they ever use these weapons against Israel, then we must be clear — it will be the end of this evil and brutal dictatorship," Yuval Steinitz, a right-wing member of the Israeli parliament, told the Daily News yesterday.

Citing Syrian intelligence sources, the report claimed a team of Iranian and Syrian engineers were killed July 26 while trying to arm a Scud-C missile with a mustard gas warhead.
