Scud Missiles Being Fired Against Syrian Rebels

The New York Times reports that Al Assad’s forces have fired Scud missiles at Syrian Rebels. NYT can account for up to six missiles fired on targets in the North of Syria.

The Scud missile is generally used against large military formations. It is quite possible that Al Assad’s forces are shaking out those systems in preparation for a chemical attack. This is without question a very serious escalation of aggression.
