Report: Hezbollah has completely rearmed


Hezbollah has restored its military capabilities to their prewar levels.

In an assessment to Israel Radio, a senior Israeli defense official said that Syria is transferring weapons to Hezbollah with the full awareness of Lebanon’s army but behind the back of UNIFIL, the U.N. force in Lebanon.

The official said Hezbollah prefers things to remain calm for now, so it can continue to build its military capabilities and restore the sites from which rockets were fired at Israel during last summer’s war.


A preliminary report issued in April by the Israeli commission investigating the government’s performance during the war pointed out that the government’s main wartime goals were not prosecuted successfully, including delivering a crippling blow to Hezbollah and recovering the two Israeli soldiers abducted by the Lebanese militia.
