As Israel marked the ten-year anniversary of its last major war against Hezbollah, its ambassador to the United Nations warned of the Lebanese terror group's ongoing activities. JNS reports that Danny Danon told the U.N. Security Council that Hezbollah continues to stockpile rockets to be used against Israel and her people:
During his speech, Danon presented an aerial photograph to the Security Council of the Lebanese village of Shaqra, which he said has been transformed into a “terrorist stronghold.”
“The village of Shaqra has been turned into a Hezbollah stronghold with one out of three buildings used for terror activities including rocket launchers and arms depots,” Danon said. “Hezbollah has placed these positions next to schools and other public institutions putting innocent civilians in great danger. We demand the removal of Hezbollah terrorists from southern Lebanon.”
According to Danon, Hezbollah was in possession of roughly 7,000 rockets in 2006, and the Lebanese terror group now has more than 120,000 missiles aimed at Israeli cities.
Hezbollah has “more missiles below ground in Lebanon then the European NATO allies have above ground,” Danon said.
