Israeli accusations that Syria provided Scud missiles to Hizbullah has increased tension in the region, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stated in a report on Friday quoted by Reuters.

"Such tensions once again illustrate the importance of control by Lebanon over its borders and of the respect by all member states for the prohibition against transferring arms [in violation of Security Council resolution 1701]," said the report.

Ban also wrote that the UN did not find any evidence that could verify the transfer of Scud missiles to Hizbullah.
