On September 27th, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed that Hezbollah had placed three precision missile sites near the Beirut airport during his speech at the UN General Assembly in New York.

“Here’s a picture that’s worth a thousand missiles, here’s Beirut’s international airport,” Netanyahu said, holding up an image with the alleged missile sites marked with big red dots.

“In Lebanon, Iran is directing Hezbollah to build secret sites to convert inaccurate projectiles into precision-guided missiles, missiles that can target deep inside Israel within an accuracy of 10 meters,” he said, using civilians as “human shields.”

He claimed the first site was in the Ouzai neighborhood, “on the water’s edge, a few blocks away from the runway.”

The second site, he said, was under the Camille Chamoun Sports City Stadium, and the third site was “adjacent to the airport itself, right next to it.”

“So I have a message for Hezbollah today, Israel also knows what you’re doing, Israel knows where you’re doing it, and Israel will not let you get away with it.”

Shortly after his speech, Israeli Defense Forces released a video clip and 5 photographs of what Israel said were Hezbollah’s rocket building sites in Lebanon.

The factories, which are meant to convert regular missiles into more accurate precision ones, are not believed to be up and running. The Israel Defense Forces claimed they are currently being constructed with Iranian assistance.

The Times of Israel claimed it has learned from anonymous sources that the target of the Israeli airstrike, due to which the Russian IL-20 was downed last week, was machinery allegedly used in the same production of precision missiles, en route to Hezbollah.

Times of Israel further cited IDF which claimed that Hezbollah had began working on these missiles facilities in 2017. The outlet cited earlier reports, as early as March 2017, claiming that Iran was constructing underground missile conversion factories in Lebanon. Since then, Israeli officials have repeatedly said that Israel would not abide such facilities.

The three sites presented on the satellite images are not the only facilities that the IDF believes are being used by Hezbollah for the manufacturing and storage of precision missiles.

“Israel is monitoring these sites with a variety of capabilities and tools, has significant knowledge of the precision project and is working to fight it with a variety of operational responses, techniques and tools,” the army said, cited by Times of Israel.

In recent years and months, Israel has acknowledged carrying out numerous airstrikes in Syria, with the aim of preventing Iran from establishing a permanent military presence in the country, as well as blocking the transfer of weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon.

The Israeli Air Force has largely abstained from conducting raids inside Lebanon itself, though it has indicated that it was prepared to do so.

As reported by Times of Israel, earlier this year, IAF chief Amiram Norkin showed visiting generals a picture of an Israeli F-35 stealth fighter flying next to Beirut’s airport, in what was seen as a direct message to Hezbollah.

Netanyahu and the IDF revelations followed the announcement of Hezbollah’s leader Hassan Nasrallah who claimed that the group possesses “highly accurate” missiles despite Israel’s attempts to prevent it from acquiring such weaponry.

He also said that Hezbollah fighters will continue to be deployed in Syria, he said, but perhaps in lesser numbers due to reduced fighting there after Syrian government forces regained control of most rebel-held areas. Nasrallah also urged supporters to rally behind Iran, saying it’s facing hard times as more U.S. sanctions are to take effect in November.

    I know if I wanted to hide missiles I’d do so near a soccer field, we all know how soccer fans can be relied upon to be responsible and discreet.

    The world is laughing at this, this walking talking abomination. A deluded and twisted psychopathic criminal.

  • Red Pilled ThoughtCrimes

    i dont think he is very credible

  • Joe

    One thing for certainty, for every known site there would be 10 or more unknowns.

    There is no way Israel can stop these production of precise missiles which surely Hez had every right to build.

    Give whatever excuses, Hez and Lebanon has the right to protect themselves.
    Just wait for the war is over

  • Sinbad2

    So because Israel can’t bomb Syria anymore, they will now bomb Lebanon.
    What a sick people.

    • Getinet Kifle

      Israhell got its nukes in Demonia and more else where.
      They got huge military armaments of their own and the Americans top notch aircrafts of all sort, they brag about their Iron dome etc

      So can someone else isn’t allowed to carry a gun in his own house?
      That is the logic at least.

      But we know the parasite state don’t want any Arab nations in having one, why ?

      the fox wants to guard the sheeps?

    • BMWA1

      S3/400 to Lebanon in future????

      • Sinbad2

        First you have to get a Government in Lebanon that is loyal to Lebanon.
        Currently the Lebanese Government is loyal to Saudi Arabia, which in turn is loyal to Israel and the USA.

    so now Israels attention is focused on Libanon. a very good diplomacy act there…..since they are unable to bomb Syria again (given the Russian threats) they will bomb Libanon.

    Why isn’t this fucker in Spandau Gaol?

    Now we know why Israel does not want to play football or other sports with its own neighbour countries instead of playing cowardly in European leagues … As every
    Palestinian is synonymous with terrorist, every Lebanese stands for a
    rocket man / suicide bomber, who is armed with a football, uh … firecracker and
    precision glasses.

    Actually, they want to say that
    it is legitimate to shoot at civilian targets, because you can never
    know whether a school, hospital or football field, is a place where some weapon factory
    or depot is hidden underground. The killing of
    goyim, call it animals, is legitimate because also in Europe and the West
    millions of animals are being killed every day to be eaten. So why should Israel deny that right, … ?

  • Really?
    And isn’t Hezbollah the govt now?
    It’s Lebanon’s business where they put their missiles inside Lebanon – NOT Israels or ours.

  • Blaine

    Is it even possible to upgrade older missiles to be “more accurate”?

    I realize there are multiple versions of Scud, but am not clear on how one might turn a Scud ‘A’ into a Scud ‘D’, wouldn’t it be safer and cheaper to build an improved variant from scratch.

    Besides, where are the Lebanese (Google Earth) pics of Diamona etc as proof of illegal nuclear program “we know where you are!”

  • Freespirit

    How EVIL of the Lebanese HEZBOLLAH to create a Missile Defense system .

    Imagine, they actually want to DEFEND themselves, on their own land

    What will they think of next – maybe even FIGHTING back against Israeli unlawful aggression ? :-)

  • Tommy Jensen

    This is not the only thing Hezbollah and Nasrallah have been doing. To the left on the photo is another white house roof, there Hezbollah has WMD´s.

  • Empire’s Frontiers

    It seems most likely Ben is pointing at a random rooftop from a google screenshot.

    No one but history will miss an unremarkable liar.

    • Smaug

      This is laughable!!! Hezbollah was literally just bragging about how many accurate missiles they have and all you neo-Nazis praise them for it but now Israel acknowledges just that and you all call him a liar!
      Ok, now I know for sure half of you don’t actually read the articles or keep track of what’s going on…

      • Empire’s Frontiers

        Acknowledging it, and making up outright lies along with pretending to display sensitive military intelligence on television are two different things.

        My remark is to do with Ben’s dramatic performance and visual embellishment, not the presence of new weapons in Lebanon.

        Also, it is highly unlikely any national socialist workers party members are among us, whatever the point of your remark was.

      • DaBoiiiii

        Just because Hezbollag has missiles, doesn’t mean they are where Nutty Yahoo says they are.

        Hezbollah does not use human shields, nor would they put their weapons somewhere where there are lots of government officials. If hezbollah have missiles in airport, no way Lebanese government doesn’t know about it, and hezbollah does not trust elements within the government.

        • Smaug

          Dude, face it, your just a sycophant. You cheer on your proverbial football team and don’t even keep track of what’s going on much less know people’s MO.

          • DaBoiiiii

            You clearly don’t know what a sycophant is. And I never said I know where they are, I said Netanyahoo is full of shit when he said that he knows where they are, and I gave my reasoning as to why Hezbollah would not hide missiles in the airport.

            Your comprehension is very poor. Your understanding of how Hezbollah behaves and operates comes from Western and Israeli media, known liars.

  • John Mason

    Hezbollah should counter israel and show a photo of terrorist training compound at the proposed US embassy in Jerusalem.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      and that will achieve what exactly?

      • John Mason

        Thought you were capable of deciphering the comment, put simply it becomes a target for Hezbollah.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          somewhere within, you still believe, that there is justice, fair game and need for justification to do the right thing what ever it is that, according to the individual, or a group of people. That is commendable.

          Hezbollah is the main target that keeps israelis on their toes as well give them nightmares.

          And Hezbollah’s main target it is also israel, targeted with thousands of missiles that are able to penetrate what ever defences the israelis have and are unstoppable.

          This is the reality on the ground and both adversaries know that.And believe me none of the two need an excuse to attack the other, or care much what the rest of the world will think about.

          Every one of the participants along side with the Syrians know the final battle plan hence the reason are patient and have not fallen to the traps set to them and provocations accepting to adopt the policy of the russians to chose when and where. This is the reason when israel killed few hundred palestinians and maimed more than that they did not react.

          It will only be one more battle between israel and Hez and I assure you israel after that will cease to be a problem and none can save it and it will end in few hours.

  • Promitheas Apollonious

    I am 100% Hezbollah and the syrians to tell the ones, who protect and get in their way to defend themselves, against this defective dna to take a walk and answer the attacks against them in kind. lets see whose going to cry uncle first.

      Hezbollah threaten Israel saying they had lots of accurate missiles just last week. Do you copy & paste that trash talk to every article that has Netanyahu in the headline?

      • Sinbad2

        Russia has lots of accurate missiles, did Russia threaten Israel?
        The USA has lots of semi accurate missiles, did the USA threaten Israel?
        Hezbollah(Lebanon) has never invaded Israel, but Israel has invaded Lebanon a few times, and bombs Lebanon on a regular basis. Also Israel steals water from Lebanon every day.

        If an armed thief broke into your house, and you asked them to leave, with a gun in your hand, would you be the bad guy?

        You have a strange way of interpreting facts.

    Just a load of BLLSHIT,to get the americans involed in killing and getting killed,while those satanic zionist scumbags sit and watch the fun.

    F35 crash in Carolinas…note there aren’t very many flights of this type of this design (probably two orders of magnitude or less vis a vis F1)…this suggests low reliability…shock).
