Does Hezbollah have Scuds? Reuters asks Syria, not Hezbollah

In the continuing intrigue related to the question of whether Hezbollah has obtained Scud missiles, Reuters fastidiously parrots Syria's denials:
Israeli President Shimon Peres has accused Syria of sending Scuds to Hezbollah. Syria denies the charge and says Israel may be using the accusation as a pretext for a military strike.
But nowhere in Arshad Mohammed's story is the query put to Hezbollah which, according to the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai (cited by the Jerusalem Post), has confirmed receiving the missiles -- with the qualification that they were "old and unusable".

Yes, we're sure Hezbollah is planning on using them as paperweights.
