«Sure, we are rearming. We have even said that we have far more rockets and missiles than we did in 2006», a Hizbullah commander boasted.
Five months after his pro-Western «March 14» coalition won a majority of the 128 seats in the Lebanese parliament, Saad Hariri has finally managed to cobble together a coalition government that in the end will include the armed opposition party Hizbullah.
The two coalitions have rival agendas as the Shi’ite terror militia supports Syrian and Iranian influence in the country, while Hariri’s camp is backed by the US, France and Saudi Arabia. Meanwhile, the Observer (UK) on Sunday quoted Hizbullah officials as claiming the Iran proxy militia has completely rearmed and reequipped after the 2006 Second Lebanon War and is ready and eager for another conflict with Israel.
«Sure, we are rearming, we have even said that we have far more rockets and missiles than we did in 2006», a Hizbullah commander boasted. «We had to blow up or leave some of our bunkers and fighting positions, but we still have plenty of capabilities in the south».
Hizbullah fighters have been busy reinforcing fixed defense positions north of the Litani river, and concentrating its forces and arms caches inside Shi’ite villages in the south.
