Worthy Christian News » Israel Air Force Continues to Build Its Firepower

(Free Beacon / Worthy News)– The firepower of the Israel Air Force (IAF) will be four times greater by year's end than it was two years ago, according to its commander, Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel, enabling Israel to bring another round of fighting with Hezbollah to a swift end.

"We can destroy [Hezbollah's] military capabilities and the infrastructure that supports its activities on a scale that would take decades to rebuild," he told a conference on national security, "an unimaginable scale".

The vast number of rockets in the hands of the Lebanese militia–reportedly as many as 100,000–makes it imperative for Israel to shorten the next round of fighting. Hezbollah can only fire a limited number of rockets each day. In the three-week war with Israel in 2006 it fired 4,000 rockets.
