(Worthy News) - Hezbollah has more than 10,000 fighters in southern Syria ready to confront Israel, a commander for the Iranian-backed Lebanese terror group has said.

“Hezbollah has over 10,000 fighters deployed in southern Syria. Hezbollah is an army of infantry, rockets, tanks, elite forces,” the Hezbollah official told the Middle East Eye this week, amid tensions surrounding the shooting down by the Israeli Air Force on Tuesday of an Iranian-built drone launched by the group as it attempted to cross into airspace.

The commander said the fighters were based in areas surrounding the Golan Heights and that tunnels and military bases were being built for a possible confrontation with Israel. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]

  1. But right now, Hezbollah is still trying to rid Syria of ISIS.
    But Israel should go ahead and start pre-emptive strikes against Hezbollah because Israel knows that it's going to have to fight it sooner or later. Kind of like the Pentagon's thinking about China.............remember what General McCarthur said, 'we're going to have fight them eventually, let's do it now while our military's here.'
    Good solid military thinking!
