article imageDoes Hezbollah control Syria’s chemical weapons?

By Eliot Elwar     Sep 10, 2012 in World
Today, Hezbollah is currently aiming 60 to 70 thousand rockets at Israel, while Syria transferred its chemical weapons to a port city last month, raising concerns about Hezbollah’s control of Syria’s weapons. Israel may take preemptive action.
From the Jerusalem Post: Hezbollah has between 60 and 70 thousand rockets aimed at Israel, Defense Ministry Diplomatic-Security chief Amos Gilad said on Monday.
Speaking at the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism's World Summit, Gilad said the Lebanese terrorist organization has stockpiled rockets of various types, and its arsenal is far more robust than the one it had prior to the Second Lebanon War. "The next war will be aimed against the home front," Gilad warned. Gilad also blamed Hezbollah for a number of successful and unsuccessful terrorist attacks abroad. While admitting that the threat from Lebanon is growing, Gilad was largely optimistic about Israel's security situation, citing positive developments in Syria, Egypt and the Gaza Strip.
From the Times of Israel News: The Syrian regime transferred chemical weapons from a storage base near Damascus to the port city of Tartus during August, sparking American and European concerns that the weapons could fall into the hands of Hezbollah in Lebanon or other militant organizations operating in Syria.
