LEBANON - 28 New Hezbollah Missile Launch Sites

Arno Froese

There are at least 28 missile launching sites belonging to Hezbollah in civilian areas in the Lebanese capital of Beirut, a report by ALMA Research and Education Center has found.

According to the report, Hezbollah has an estimated 600 Fateh 110/M600 missiles, which have a range of up to 300 km., while improved models called “D’ Al-Ficar” have a range of up to 700 km.

“Almost all of the sites are in southern Beirut, an area controlled by Hezbollah, and are located in civilian neighborhoods, inside private houses, medical centers, churches, industrial sites, public offices, fast food chains, as well as in open spaces nearby, hence activating the “human shield” tactic,” the report read.

And according to the report, “Based on our insight into Hezbollah’s action patterns these sites are available for immediate operational use.”

The group has expanded its arsenal with more than 130,000 rockets and missiles of all sorts of ranges and payloads.

Israel has reiterated several times that the transfer of any advanced weapons to Hezbollah is a redline for the Jewish state and that it will work to prevent any such movement.

Arno's commentary

Hezbollah is a Shiite Muslim, militant group in Lebanon, with a security system, political organization, and social services. It is considered “a state within a state.” Hezbollah has supported the Syrian government and has gained decades of experience in warfare. The Hezbollah organization was founded in the early 1980s, as part of an Iranian effort to secure Syria and Lebanon for its purposes. Hezbollah is designated as a terrorist entity by France, Spain, Germany, the USA, and other nations. 

It is of interest that the missile launch sites are primarily located in civilian areas: medical centers, even churches and public offices. Hamas operates in Gaza on similar principles. But Israel knows the locations and will act accordingly when necessary. That’s one of Israel’s great advantages: being able to communicate in many different languages around the world. They know the plans of their enemies.

This is a great lesson for us Christians. We may read, hear, and see reports by various news media outlets; but when reading the prophetic Word, we know the purpose and the target of these things. Therefore, we too must be alert 24/7 for attacks of the enemy in the invisible world. But, the good news is that we believe in Jesus Christ and trust in Him, of whom Colossians 2:15 states: “And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.”
