'Syria helped Hezbollah amass some 40,000 missiles'
[link to www.haaretz.com]


Hezbolah, Lebanon's Iran- and Syria-backed guerilla organization that became a key player in the Beirut govermnent, has amassed some 40,000 missiles, the French daily Le Figaro reported Monday, saying that Damascus had a major role in replenishing the group's arsenal after its 2006 war with Israel.

The report also shed new light on the structure of Hezbollah's military wing.

The United States has been closely observing that alliance since last January, when its radar spotted 26 missiles M-6002 in the area between Damascus and Syria's border with Lebanon.

According to Le Figaro, Hezbollah has to date more than 10,000 fighters, and that its weapons transport system is divided into three units: Unit 108 is responsible for transferring weapons and ammunition from Damascus to Hezbollah bases on the Lebanon border and near the Syrian airport; next comes Unit 112, which transports the weapons from those bases into Lebanon; third is Unit 100, which deals with deployment and training.

Satellite photos taken in March of last year and caught earlier this month show that the Syrian army has a Scud missile base near Damascus. While the images also suggest that Hezbollah activists are being trained in the Scuds' use at the base, Syria denies reports that it has supplied the militant group with those weapons. .....

If we know the targets, stop wasting time and sandbaggin and take them out before they are used against civilians, I hate politics, it detracts from the things that have to be done.

Israel took ALL of their missiles away in 2006, killed a couple thousand, left twice as many wounded and only lost 119 guys.

Hezbollah must really want a thrashing or they are setting a PR trap for Israel
