Iran is manufacturing arms inside Lebanon according to Chagai Tzuriel, director- general of the Israeli Intelligence Ministry. If true, it would mean the Iranians and Hezbollah are trying to get around the difficulty of transferring arms over land through Syria to Lebanon by manufacturing them locally instead. Israel reportedly, on a number of occasions, has attacked convoys moving potentially “game-changing” armaments over land through Syria.
Someone ought to remind Hezbollah that sitting targets are easier to hit than moving ones. Under President Trump, the United States is more likely to release its gigantic bunker busting bombs to Israel, so not even Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah’s subterranean abode will be safe. If he does eventually get incinerated below ground, it will be a double whammy. Those promised 72 virgins are apparently only available in heaven, which traditionally tends to be above ground. Any which way, his demise is sure to go down a bomb (British for ‘well received’).
