Final Warning, Israel Threatens to Destroy Hezbollah’s Munitions Factories

Israel has apparently sent a final warning to the Lebanese government that it will seek to destroy Iranian proxy, Hezbollah’s munitions factories, unless they are promptly shut down.

Iran is known to have recently supplied Hezbollah with precision-guided munitions, enabling a much greater number of their vast arsenal – thought to be in the region of 120,000 – 150,000 rockets – with an ability to strike within a 10-meter radius of an intended target. The prospect of Israel having to contend with such a large number of unguided rockets is causing concern, but the threat of high-precision weapons significantly ramps up the threat.

Similar to the set-up in which Hamas and Islamic Jihad manufacture their missiles in the Gaza Strip, Hezbollah’s precision-guided factories are thought to be located in small workshops. They are scattered across Lebanon making them harder to locate and target by air or missile – and they are frequently placed among civilian populations.

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.
