IDF: Hizbullah Has Capability to Strike Israel's Offshore Gas Platforms

(Ha'aretz) Yaniv Kubovich - Hizbullah has the capability to attack Israel's offshore natural gas platforms with missiles, senior Israel Defense Forces officers said Monday.

The IDF says Hamas is also trying to acquire the capability to hit the gas platforms, one of which is 40 km. from Gaza.
