Damascus: Washington's reaction to Scud reports regrettable

A week after allegations surfaced that Syria had transferred ballistic Scud missiles to Hizbullah, the foreign ministry in Damascus denied the reports, expressing surprise at Washington's easy acceptance of "Israeli claims."
Syrian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Bushra Kanafani said warned on Tuesday that the American reaction was "regrettable and could deepen the gap between Damascus and Washington."
She adding that Israel was trying to shuffle the cards in the region because of its foreign relations "dilemma" over its settlement policies in Palestinian territories.
