From what I've been able to find, Syria has submodels of the SA-5b but not the SA-5c which is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead. However, any SA-5 that could potentially follow a ballistic arc toward you should probably be shot down just on the off chance that things are not as they seem. The remote chance is worth the cost of shooting it down.
