Hezbollah Can Hit Tel Aviv with Chinese Rockets
Hezbollah may have more than 30,000 Iranian-made, Chinese-designed rockets capable of hitting Tel Aviv–not 20,000, as reported by Britain’s Sunday Times. Each Fatah-110 rocket has a 500-lb. warhead and a range of 200 kilometers.
Iran probably upgraded the rockets with the help of North Korea.
In addition to the long-range rockets, huge quantities of arms–including Chinese- and Iranian-made short-range rockets and Russian-made antitank missiles, small arms, mines and ammunition–have been smuggled into Lebanon from Syria and Iran.
According to the Times, Iran’s Shiite Islamist proxy has built a network of underground military bunkers that can withstand air strikes. The bunkers were built close to the Israel-Lebanon border, under the noses of United Nations peacekeeping forces in southern Lebanon.
Some bunkers are as much as 300 feet deep and as wide as a football field; others can hold fewer than 10 fighters. All the bunkers are equipped with sophisticated communications equipment. Many bunkers are connected by tunnels, limiting Israel’s ability to destroy them from the air.
