JNS.org – Hezbollah has a stock of advanced sea-to-sea missiles which it intends to impose a maritime siege on Israel if the two sides enter another war, Lebanese media outlets reported on Monday.

According to the reports, Hezbollah apparently has an arsenal of sophisticated Russian-made Yakhont sea-to-sea missiles, which were recently transferred from Russia to Syria as part of an arms deal between the two countries. Moscow has also allegedly transferred more advanced S-300 anti-aircraft batteries to Syria. It is possible that some of these have been transferred to Hezbollah.

    In that case, the Lebanese better hope they produce enough of their own food (what with all the Syrian refugees flooding the country), as Israel can surely destroy not only the Lebanese airports but the seaports as well. Do the Lebanese want a setback to their economy like in the last war?
