It is in the interests of both Syria and Israel to avoid war between the two countries. The fact that Syria is arming itself with gound to ground rockets is alarming. It shows that Syria is preparing for a missile war against Israel. Syria must be reminded that firing missiles into population centers is a war crime. Since Israel is very tiny, she cannot be expected to absorb any serious missile attacks on her soil. A response to a missile attack would have to be decisive and unhesitating. It is up to the regime in Syria to worry about its survival. The regime definitely has a much better chance to survive if it refrains from war.
