A “Scud Crisis” is threatening to ignite an all-out war between Israel and Hizbullah, the Kuwaiti al-Rai newspaper reported.
The daily said that Syria has delivered to Hizbullah Scud missiles, sparking a behind-the-scenes crisis after Israel informed Washington that “it will take steps if the U.S. didn’t find a solution to what the Jewish state considers a threat to its security.”
Following the Israeli warning, the U.S. State Department summoned Syrian ambassador Imad Mustafa and asked him “to inform his government about the level of danger if the missiles crossed the border,” al-Rai said.
Washington also reportedly told Mustafa that the U.S. and other parties are keen to achieve a peaceful solution to the crisis to avoid war.
The daily quoted U.S. sources as saying that Israel has sent indirect warnings to Syria through Turkey and Qatar that it would “bomb Lebanese and Syrian targets in case the missiles crossed the border … and reached Hizbullah.”
