Yeap the Syrian army is not in really good state
no fund ---> no modern equipment + conscription (which is seen as a little borring and dangerous by many young syrians .. the "life " in syrian winter outposts in Golan is awful).
but (always a but !) .they learn some lessons from 2006. and from 82'
They know that' they have no chance to challenge Tsahal in an conventional armored battle or in air dominance and they learnt after 73 that an israeli armored blitz could quickly threat Damascus.
For them the only chance to obtain at least a military "Pat" in a confrontation with Israel is to adapt units, strategy, and doctrin for an asymetric warfare as Hizb-i-allah did. So in the next years they will probably adapt their forces with more anti tank squads, and try to obtain more modern light and mobile surface to air launchers (Iranian MANPADS Mishag, chinese, NK and maybe Belarus upgrade).
But for that they need money, but less than they need to buy modern fighters and tanks !
--->It's the only option they have !
IMHO the military situation with israel is frozen....till it's the same gvt in Damascus. The syrian ballistic capabilities could be seen as a low tech deterence.
Btw do you know that wolf in arabic is Ze'b... (definitely so close !!
