Hezbullah has a missile base in Syria, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told his Italian counterpart Silvio Berlusconi in Italy, Channel 2 news reported Saturday.

Syria agreed to transfer Skud missiles to Hizbullah after intense and repeated efforts by Iran to convince it an Israeli attack in the north was imminent, the report added.

However, the weapons were not transferred out of Syria, but instead Hizbullah was allowed to have a base inside Syria, according to the report.

This reports follows a report by The Times of London on Friday that satellite photos show that Hezbullah terrorists have been living in armed bases stocked with surface-to-surface missiles in Syria.


The Syrian government has denied that the bases are being used by Hezbullah, 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 Hezbullah. 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.
