US not certain whether Syria sells Scuds to Hezbollah

The United States has not reached a judgment on whether or not Syria has transferred Scud missiles to Lebanon's Hezbollah, U.S. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said on Tuesday.

"We are still looking into it. We haven't (made) any particular judgment at this point as to whether any transfer has taken place but ... this is something that we have great concern about," spokesman P.J. Crowley told reporters.

The United States summoned the senior Syrian diplomat in Washington on Monday to address what it called "provocative behavior" regarding the potential transfer of Scud missiles to Hizbollah, which it said could be threaten Lebanon and Israel.

The U.S. statement on Monday stopped short of confirming the alleged transfer of long-range Scud missiles to Lebanese Hizbollah guerrillas.
