NATO detects new Scud-type missile launches in Syria-source
BRUSSELS Dec 21 (Reuters) - NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen on Friday condemned Syria's firing of short-range missiles after a NATO source said allied surveillance had detected new launches of Scud-type missiles in Syria this week.
The source said there had been multiple launches of the missiles inside Syria on Thursday morning, more than a week after the alliance first detected Scuds being fired during Syria's 21-month-old civil war.
Rasmussen said NATO strongly regretted the missile launches. "I consider (them) acts of a desperate regime approaching collapse," he told reporters at NATO headquarters.
