31-Mar-11: Uncovering a southern Lebanese empire of destruction and death
Yesterday, the Washington Post published a report, including detailed maps (original online here), of what Israeli intelligence officials describe as "roughly 1,000 underground bunkers and hidden weapons storage facilities and monitoring sites built by Hezbollah in south Lebanon". The Post's article refers to Hezbollah having set up some 550 bunkers, 300 monitoring sites and 100 weapons storage facilities. The terrorists managed to fire off some 4,000 rockets into northern Israel during the most recent war launched by them in 2006. The concern here in Israel is that Hezbollah has a far larger stockpile today and that it is even more firmly embedded in the villages of South Lebanon.
