IAF chief: Those who sleep with rockets are unsafe

Unfortunately for Lebanon, they have been severely infiltrated to the point that they will also come under attack by Israel when the war begins. The fifth column installed with tens of thousands of rockets under terrorist control is something Israel cannot afford to ignore during wartime.

Those who “sleep with rockets and amass large stockpiles of weapons” in southern Lebanon are “in a very unsafe place,” OC Air Force Maj.-Gen. Amir Eshel said on Wednesday.

Two days earlier, an unexplained explosion tore through the southern Lebanese town of Tair Harfa, damaging a suspected Hezbollah arms depot.

“It is not a secret that Hezbollah is prepared in southern Lebanon, in violation of UN resolutions,” Eshel said, adding that Israel has been clear on the “need to dismantle Hezbollah. The international community is not enforcing the UN resolutions [calling for an arms-free zone in southern Lebanon].”
