In light of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s warnings about Iran’s entrenchment in Syria and Lebanon, an intelligence assessment released today (Wednesday) by Israel’s defense establishment revealed that the Islamic Republic of Iran is delivering about 10 supply planes to Syria and Hezbollah every month. According to the information provided by sources, Israel also recognizes that Iran is developing a new series of precision missiles called Raed.
Israel also believes that Iran wants to establish a permanent military division in Syria that will bring together all the elements and organizations already serving there. Hezbollah is already changing its perspective: it wants to move towards a short and intensive war and is very concerned about an Israeli ground maneuver in Lebanon. The same sources also reported that Israel has thwarted dozens of terrorist attacks around the world, not only against Israeli targets.
The sources added that Hamas in the Gaza Strip is currently investing most of its efforts in digging tunnels inside the Gaza Strip and not necessarily on tunnels passing under the fence, likely a measure of preparation in case the IDF operates inside the Gaza Strip.
