Listen: Hezbollah, Lebanon And Iran discussed on John Batchelor
"Iran has predominantly been using the air routes flying primarily into Damascus international airport, and then shipping the munitions that it's delivering to Hezbollah to wherever Hezbollah wants them either in Syria or in Lebanon, and they do both by truck the land route is something they would like for the long haul but primarily stuff's being flown in. We are concerned however about recent reports about direct flights now between Iran and Beirut international airport. Which would mean they wouldn't even have to truck them in wherever they're going. And of course, I'm top of all of that. There is the effort on the part of Iran and Lebanese Hezbollah to build for Hezbollah a domestic that is to say domestic within Lebanon precision procurement program. So that they can put together precision rockets domestically within Lebanon, either building the rockets themselves, right? A minimum behavior to add precision GPS guided kits to rockets that are not otherwise guided rockets and making them much more dangerous. You don't just something that can be shot not just in the general direction of a city, but at a particular building in a particular block, and that's something that the Israelis have exposed recently as well with his building underground bunkers to serve as precision GPS workshops in civilian residential areas. In the southern suburbs of Beirut under a soccer field. A mosque near the airport. And I think that this is a building tension. It's not clear how long Israel can tolerate that type of activity on the one hand Israelis want there to be calm in the northern border on the other hand the longer they wait to take care of this the more rockets as well as able to put together. And so it's it's a delicate balance Matthew Levitt of the Washington Institute. Malcolm Hoenlein, Conference, the presidents Major American Jewish organizations. I'm John Batchelor. Five point nine.
