Netanyahu Acknowledges Israeli Attacks on Arms Shipments to Hezbollah

Israel has attacked “dozens” of arms shipments on their way to the terrorist group Hezbollah, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledged.

Netanyahu made the statement Monday during a visit to an Israeli military exercise in the Golan Heights, according to Israeli news reports.

“We act when we need to act, including here, across the border, in dozens of strikes, to prevent Hezbollah from obtaining game-changing weaponry,” ” he said in an address to the soldiers. “We are also working on other fronts, near and far, but we are doing it intelligently.

“If we have to go to battle — and that possibility lies before us, and that’s why you’re here – it will be because we could not prevent the dangers to Israel in any other way.”

Israel has neither confirmed nor denied reports in the Arab media alleging several Israeli airstrikes on weapons convoys in Syria and Lebanon bound for Hezbollah.
