LEBANON POLITICS: Israel to be ‘Surprised’ if Attacks Lebanon: Hezbollah Official

A senior official with Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement has said that the resistance group will “surprise” Israel in any future war, relying on its enhanced military capabilities.

In an interview with Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV channel on the 11th anniversary of the Second Lebanon War, head of Hezbollah’s Executive Council Sayyed Hashem Safieddine noted that the resistance group has been changing and developing new military capabilities.

Safieddine said that Israeli reports on Hezbollah’s weaponry are “inaccurate as the enemy intelligence agencies can never reach veracious data in this context.”

The Kuwaiti Al-Jarida newspaper reported last March that Hezbollah has set up and operated underground weapons factories which can produce missiles with a range of over 500 kilometers, surface-to- air and antitank missiles as well as unmanned aerial vehicles capable of carrying explosives.

According to a recent report by the French web magazine Intelligence Online, one of the underground facilities is located near Hermel in northeastern Lebanon. The factory manufactures the Fateh- 110 rocket which can carry half-ton warheads and is relatively accurate with a range of 300 kilometers, covering the majority of Israel.

Another underground facility is located near the Mediterranean coast between the cities of Tyre and Sidon in southern Lebanon and produces smaller munitions, the report said.

Last week, Israeli minister for military affairs Avigdor Liberman described Hezbollah’s access to sophisticated weaponry is as a redline for Israel, stressing that Tel Aviv will prevent the resistance group from owning such capabilities.
