The Syrian regime is building a new, large-scale army which will surpass its previous strength and dimensions, Israel’s Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said on Tuesday while on a visit in the north of the country.

“We see the Syrian army, which is not satisfied with taking control of all the Syrian territory, is clearly building a new, large-scale land army that will return to its previous dimensions and beyond,” Liberman said during a visit to the armored corps in the Golan Heights along with IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot and the Head of the Northern Command.
