Wednesday, 14 Apr 2010 11:41 AM

JERUSALEM - United States officials have confirmed Israeli allegations that Syria supplied Hezbollah with ballistic missiles capable of inflicting heavy damage on Israel's cities, according to reports in the United States Wednesday.

U.S. officials briefed on the intelligence told the Wall Street Journal that they believe Syria transferred Scud missiles built with either North Korean or Russian technology to the Lebanese militant group.

The American confirmation comes after Israel on Tuesday publicly accused Syria over the missiles.

"Syria claims that it wants peace, while simultaneously delivering Scud missiles to Hezbollah, which is constantly threatening the security of the state of Israel," President Shimon Peres told Israel Radio.

Later the same day, he said: "Syria is playing a double game. On the one hand it talks peace, yet at the same time it hands over accurate Scud missiles to Hezbollah so that it can threaten Israel."
