Since Hizbollah seized two Israeli soldiers earlier this month, the guerrilla group has fired more than 1,500 rockets into northern Israel. Despite Israel’s constant attacks, Hizbollah continues to pose a significant threat. Around 40 rockets landed across the region today, slightly injuring around five people.
Israeli military authorities say the rockets fired were old Syrian-made models – a sign, they say, that Hizbollah is growing weak and running out of weapons. But the group’s leader dismissed such claims.
In a televised address, Sheik Hassan Nasrallah pledged more attacks on central Israeli cities if Israel’s offensive persists.
