Hizbollah stronger than ever in Lebanon

Thanks to the diligence of the United Nations, Hezbollah now has more rockets than they did before the recent conflict with Israel…

From the Times Online

FOUR months after Israel launched its onslaught against Hezbollah, the Lebanese guerrillas are back in south Lebanon stronger than ever and armed with more rockets than they had before the conflict, according to Israeli intelligence.

During the month-long war, which began on July 12, Hezbollah fired 200 to 250 rockets a day into Israel, killing 43 civilians and terrorising much of the north of the country.

“Since the ceasefire, additional rockets, weapons and military equipment have reached Hezbollah,” said an Israeli intelligence officer. “We assume they now have about 20,000 rockets of all ranges — a bit more than they had before July 12.”

Sounds like Kofi & Company did a bang up job disarming the terrorists.

“Since the ceasefire, additional rockets, weapons and military equipment have reached Hezbollah,” said an Israeli intelligence officer. “We assume they now have about 20,000 rockets of all ranges — a bit more than they had before July 12.”

Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, has confirmed the Israeli estimate. In a recent interview with al-Manar, the Hezbollah television station, he claimed his organisation had restocked its arsenal and now held at least 30,000 rockets, sufficient for five months of war.

So in 3 months time, Hizbollah has restocked its war supplies sufficiently to be able to conduct 5 months of war with Israel.  A very clear indication that this summers conflict with Israel was not an over reaction by Israel but a well planned and coordinated effort by Hizbollah and its Iranian & Syrian masters.
