Nasrallah won't confirm or deny Scud possession
Army chief: No Scud missiles in Lebanon

The Syrian government has denied that the bases are being used by Hizbullah, claiming they are for Syrian military use only.

In the beginning of April , Kuwait’s Al-Rai newspaper reported that Syria had transferred Scud ballistic missiles to Hizbullah. Israel subsequently issued a stern warning that it would consider attacking both Syrian and Lebanese targets in response to a Scud attack on its territory.

Last month, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein warned that Hizbullah had acquired Scud missiles and improved its missile capabilities.

"There are rockets and missiles in Lebanon in greater quantities and levels of sophistication and this point endangers Israel," Feinstein said to AFP.
