Bibi: Israel Prevents Hezbollah from Acquiring "Game-Changing" Weapons

Yesterday, Stand for Israel told you about PM Netanyahu's report that Israeli security has led to a drop in terror attacks. Today, JNS reports that Netanyahu credits the IDF for keeping the terror group Hezbollah from getting its hands on "game-changing" weapons:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday that Israel has prevented the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah from acquiring “game-changing” weaponry as a result of numerous attacks by Israel in Syria.

“We are proud that in the stormy and volatile Middle East, we were able to maintain relative calm and relative safety in Israel. We act when we should act, including here, across the border, in dozens of attacks, to prevent Hezbollah from getting game-changing weaponry,” Netanyahu said during a visit with soldiers in the Israeli Golan Heights.

Netanyahu’s statements are the latest in a war of words between the Jewish state and the Lebanese terror group. Over the past few months, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah has threatened to strike chemical and nuclear sites inside of Israel.

But Germany’s Bild newspaper reported on Saturday that Hezbollah has acquired the Russian-made Buk SA-17 missile battery that had been previously given to the Syrian government. The medium-range surface-to-air missile system is designed to target aircraft, missiles, and unmanned aerial vehicles that could potentially be used by Israel in an attack on the terror group.
