(CS Monitor / Worthy News)– Israel's top military officer warned today that Hezbollah is more powerful than most of the world's armies and that a confrontation between Israel and the Lebanese Shiite militant organization was a near certainty.
In the past eight years, the Iran-backed group is believed to have acquired GPS-guided Syrian-manufactured missiles fitted with 1,100-pound warheads with ranges of at least 150 miles. That puts Tel Aviv within range of the Lebanese border. It also has drones that can carry dozens of pounds of explosive. In October 2012, a drone operated by Hezbollah penetrated Israeli airspace in the south before being detected and shot down by Israeli jets.
