Lebanon’s Al-Manar news station aired a segment recently in which it outlined the claimed capabilities of Hezbollah’s rocket arsenal. The station, which is closely affiliated with Hezbollah, has been labeled a terrorist “entity” by countries such as the United States and France.

Israel’s Channel 2 published the video which illustrated the capabilities exhibited by terrorists in Gaza in the recent conflict between Israel and Hamas. Rockets were able to reach Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, but the segment claims that Hezbollah would change the equation, as it is able to reach Eilat, several hundred miles south of the border between the two countries.

The segment, which was accompanied by many graphic descriptions, illustrated the claimed range capability of the organization’s rocket arsenal. “Hezbollah has the following capabilities: the destruction of buildings in Tel Aviv; damage to ports and ships  in the Mediterranean and the Red Sea and capability to hit specific targets with missiles on the residents and resources of Israel,” it said according to a translation.

It was also asserted in the segment that the success of any future conflict with Israel is dependent on intelligence gathering, for which Hezbollah says it has been able to successfully carry out drone missions. In October Israel shot down a drone that had infiltrated the country’s airspace. It was later determined that the drone had come from Lebanon.

On Sunday Hezbollah terror chief Hassan Nasrrallah addressed a crowd of supporters in Beirut marking the end of the Shiite Muslim Ashura festival, saying, “”Israel, which was jolted by Fajr-5 missiles – how will it be able to endure thousands of missiles falling on Tel Aviv and other cities if it attacks Lebanon? Our campaign against Israel is from Kiryat Shmona to Eilat.”
