Israel Prepares For Hizballah’s South Lebanon Military Fortress

Throughout its deep involvement in Syria’s civil war, Hizballah did not neglect its ‘second’ and primary front – its south Lebanese border with Israel, which today lies quiet, but could ignite into conflict at any time.

Hizballah has converted an estimated 200 mostly Shi’ite Lebanese villages and towns into military bases. It has packed residential buildings and underground bunkers with surface-to-surface rockets and missiles, and pointed them directly at Israeli cities.

These bases, deliberately embedded in the heart of Lebanese civilian areas, are protected by rings of heavily armed Hizballah cells, trained to engage the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) in ambush-style, urban warfare.

Altogether, Hizballah has amassed an arsenal of 120,000 projectiles, representing a level of firepower that is larger than most NATO states. These weapons are produced by Iranian and Syrian regime arms factories, and smuggled into Lebanon via a trafficking network run by Iran’s Quds Force.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
