Brig.-Gen. Yossi Baidatz, head of Military Intelligence’s Research Directorate, told US officials that Israel had information "suggesting Syria intended to imminently transfer SCUD-D missiles to Hizballah in Lebanon," WikiLeaks cables released Wednesday revealed.

The cable, from February 22, 2010, quoted Baidatz explaining Israel's fear that such a transfer would create "a new level of concern" on the northern border.
