Israel Says Hizbullah Closed Precision Missile Plants in Lebanon after Israel Exposed Them

(Reuters) Hizbullah shut down plants to develop precision-guided missiles after Israel exposed them, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday. In a Sept. 7 speech to the UN, Netanyahu named three locations where Hizbullah was turning "inaccurate projectiles" into precision-guided missiles. "Those sites near the Beirut airport, the underground sites for precision conversion of missiles, which (Israeli) military intelligence gave me to expose, those sites were closed," he said. "They are trying to open other sites, but through these measures we are denying them precision arms." Hizbullah had hoped to obtain "thousands of precision-guided missiles (but) they have, at most, a few dozen."
