Lebanon: Syria has not supplied Scud missiles to Hezbollah

Israeli claims that Syria has enabled Hezbollah to further destabilise the region angrily denied by Lebanese government
The Lebanese government today angrily denounced Israeli claims that Syria has supplied Hezbollah militia with Scud ballistic missiles, comparing it with the misinformation about weapons of mass destruction in the leadup to the Iraq war.

The prime minister, Saad Hariri, was speaking after the US state department gave credence to the Israeli allegations by summoning a senior Syrian diplomat late on Monday to explain what it called "provocative behaviour".
