IDF Unveils Photos of Secret Hezbollah Missile Facilities in Lebanon, Near Beirut Airport
JNS.org – The Israel Defense Forces released images on Thursday of Hezbollah facilities in the heart of Lebanon’s capital, saying they proved the Shi’ite terrorist group is trying to build weapon-production sites near the Lebanese capital’s airport.
This development occurred shortly after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said to the UN General Assembly that Israel had evidence Iran was assisting Hezbollah with improving its missiles through precision guidance systems.
“In Lebanon, Iran is directing Hezbollah to build secret sites to convert inaccurate projectiles into precision-guided missiles—missiles that can target deep inside Israel within an accuracy of 10 meters [30 feet],” he said.
The deployment of the facilities near Beirut-Rafic Hariri International Airport was “knowingly jeopardizing the Lebanese civilian population,” according to the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit.
