Israel has accused Syria of handing off Scud missiles to Hezbollah. The fear alone puts the volatile region even more on edge. Israel may be much more likely to strike at the first sign of danger to try and hit the scuds on the ground before they can be launched into Tel Aviv.
"Israeli officials say that Syria has delivered accurate long-distance Scud missiles to the Lebanese group Hezbollah, placing cities deep in Israel’s heartland, including Tel Aviv, within range.
The officials added that the delivery of the missiles — strongly denied by Syria and yet to be confirmed by sources outside of Israel — would change the strategic balance in the area and increase the risk of war."
