Hizballah Seeks Chemical Arsenal

(Jerusalem Post) Herb Keinon - Syria is trying to fit medium-range rockets with chemical warheads, and there are some indications Hizballah is involved in these tests, Head of Military Intelligence Maj.-Gen. Aharon Ze'evi told the cabinet Sunday. Hizballah's arsenal in southern Lebanon includes 13,000 short-range rockets, 500 medium-range rockets, and a few dozen long-range rockets with a range of between 115 and 215 km. Ze'evi said Hizballah has infrastructure in some 40 countries around the world. Ze'evi also said, "If there is one country in the region where I believe there is a real danger [of being overthrown], it is Saudi Arabia." Ze'evi said he would not be surprised if there are "deep changes" in Saudi Arabia within the coming year.
