Report: Hezbollah Mobilizing Missiles From Syria to South Lebanon
JNS.org – Hezbollah has begun mobilizing missiles from Syria to southern Lebanon in a bid to counter a potential Israeli airstrike, rebel-affiliated media outlets in Syria reported on Thursday.
The Shi’ite terrorist group is reportedly concerned that the Israeli operation to neutralize its cross-border terror tunnels is the opening move to a wider military campaign, the reports said.
Syrian opposition officials said that Hezbollah was moving OTR-21 Tochka missile batteries to southern Lebanon.
The OTR-21 is a Soviet-made tactical ballistic-missile system ranging between 15 kilometers and 185 kilometers (nine miles to to 115 miles).
Other reports said that Hezbollah was also deploying short-range, Iranian-made projectiles in southern Lebanon, adding that the group has blocked dozens of roads in the area to allow the convoy smooth transport.
