WASHINGTON, April 22 (UPI) -- A top U.S. official said Syria may face repercussions if claims that it supplied missiles to Hezbollah are accurate.
"If these reports turn out to be true, we're going to have to review the whole range of tools that are available for us in order to make Syria reverse what would be an incendiary, provocative action," U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Jeffrey Feltman told the House Foreign Affairs Committee. "I expect that all options are going to be on the table looking at this."
Washington is looking into Israeli allegations that Syria supplied Hezbollah with long-range Scud missiles but hasn't confirmed that the deal occured.
"We haven't reached a particular judgment at this point as to whether a transfer has taken place," State Department spokesman Philip Crowley said.
Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri likened allegations that Syria supplied Scud missiles to Hezbollah to the claim, which turned out to be wrong, that Saddam Hussein's Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.
