U.N. told Hezbollah arsenal has tripled
by UPI

JERUSALEM -- Israel has informed the United Nations the arsenal of Hezbollah guerrillas' land-to-sea missiles in Lebanon has tripled, Haaretz reported Wednesday.

The intelligence came to light Tuesday in a report by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon following up on the second Israel-Hezbollah war in July 2006.

Ban's report for the Security Council said Israel had provided "a great deal" of information claiming Hezbollah militants had rehabilitated its military strength north of the Litani River, where "most of the new missiles include (Iranian-made) Zelzal and Fajr missiles that have a range of more than 150 miles and are capable of hitting areas south of Tel Aviv."

However, Ban was critical of Israel for failing to provide complete information on the location of cluster bombs fired during the war and Israel's continued use of military flights into Lebanese airspace, Haaretz said.

The newspaper report didn't provide specific numbers of missiles and arms Israel alleges Hezbollah has.
