Israel signals it will keep attacking Hizballah’s advanced weapons

Four developments on Thursday are seen as a clear Israeli signal to Hizballah that the IDF, especially its air force and navy, will not hesitate to act against the terrorist organization's infrastructure, facilities, and its weaponry defined by the Israeli defense establishment as advanced weapons, both now and in the near future, even though Hizballah is seemingly being protected by Moscow.  
The four developments were Russian President Vladimir Putin's unusually long personal conversation with new Israeli ambassador to Moscow Zvi Hefetz immediately after the envoy's presentation of credentials; a statement by senior Israeli Air Force officers that Israel will not ask Russia for permission to fly in Syrian airspace; a report on an Israeli military exercise in which warplanes and attack helicopers carried out hundreds of sorties simultaneously; and the successful test of the Barak-8 missile.
