200,000 Rockets Aimed at Israel

(Gatestone Institute) Yaakov Lappin - One out of every 10 homes in Lebanon now has a rocket launcher or Hizbullah weapons stored in it, Home Front Defense Minister Gilad Erdan said. Civilian homes are constructed in southern Lebanon in a way that allows the roof to open up for the firing of a rocket at Israel. He said the number of rockets and missiles possessed by Hizbullah, Syria, Iran, Hamas and Islamic Jihad add up to 200,000. Giora Eiland, former head of Israel's National Security Council, said, "In 2006, we tried to do something impossible by hitting rocket launchers." "If war does break out, treating Lebanon as an enemy would end the conflict in three days, not three weeks," Eiland predicted. "This entails bombing bridges and other state-affiliated targets."
