Israeli defense officials believe Syria has given scud missiles to the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah.
Lebanese Minister Hussein Haj Hassan acknowledged the group was always arming and preparing itself, but added "what we have is not their business."
Israel has not offered any proof to support the allegations, and Syria's Foreign Ministry strongly denied the charge, saying it believes that Israel aims through these claims to further strain the atmosphere in the region."
Syrian officials added that Israel could be setting the stage for a potential "aggression in order to run away from the requirements of a just and comprehensive peace."
Haj Hassan also told Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV Friday that Israel possessed various weapons, including nuclear warheads.
"It's only natural for Lebanon to have the means to defend itself against an Israeli attack," Haj Hassan said.
Some scud missiles have a range of hundreds of miles. Those missiles would be able to strike anywhere in Israel.
