’Israeli’ Army Afraid: Hizbullah could Bring Our Ports to A Halt
After US dailies confirmed that Hizbullah has obtained high-tech missiles, "Israeli" Navy warned that Hizbullah's possession of components of the Yakhont advanced guided-missile systems poses danger to the Zionist entity.
"Yakhonts are hard to detect by radar," "Israeli" sources said, and cautioned that "If used, missiles could bring Israeli ports to a halt."
According to Ynet daily, Hizbullah's possession of components of the Yakhont advanced guided-missile systems raised concerns among the "Israeli" naval forces, which estimated that such systems in the hands of Hizbullah could bring both the Haifa and the Ashdod ports to a halt.
"Hizbullah and Syria are continually fortifying, and once a week a Russian ship unloads weapons in Syrian ports," an "Israeli" official with the Navy said.
A Wall Street Journal report on Friday stated that US officials believe members of Hizbullah are smuggling the missile systems piece by piece to evade a secretive "Israeli" air campaign designed to stop them.
According to US intelligence, as many as 12 anti-ship guided-missile systems may now be in Hizbullah's possession inside Syria, the WSJ noted.
The "Israeli" army, according to "Israeli" sources, has yet to develop a missile system that can intercept the Russian advanced missile, which maintains low altitude flight paths for hundreds of kilometers. The missile is therefore hard to detect in radars.
The sources further estimated that Hizbullah has managed to smuggle into Lebanon parts of the Yakhont.
War Minister Moshe Ya'alon stressed the missile system was a "red line" as far as weapon transfer from Syria to Lebanon is concerned.
