Netanyahu: Missiles produced here can reach any point in the region

Binyamin Netanyahu, prime minister and defense minister, commented during a tour of Israel’s Aerospace Industries on Monday, that the missiles produced there can reach any target at any point in the region. “This is Israel’s assault force and it is important for every arena,” he said. “Here is where we develop weapons systems with special capabilities that no one else possesses.” He cited a micro-satellite that was launched into space and noted that space was a vast field for Israeli venture. The PM was accompanied by Aerospace Industries Chairman Harel Locker and CEO Nimrod Shefer.

    Question is if IAI produced enough missiles, to give a swift and strong answer to a multi front attack from Gaza, Lebanon and Syria.
    Be prepared as the enemy can upgrade ballistic rockets to guided rockets using kits provided by Iran. Keep this in mind when calculating trajectory.

      Only a tiny fraction of Hezbollah’s rockets are suitable for upgrades. If they could produce 100,000 guided long-range rockets on their budget, they would have been contracted to make ’em for China too.

        With only Beirut and Tripoli having real sea ports, any serious flow of materials for upgrades could be easily cut with a maritime blockade to keep in place until Lebanon government presents excuses for the tunnels and promises in UNGA disarming the border under IDF inspection watch.

        Let us say they show in the beginning they smirk, or even worst, refuse! In this case, with only 2-3 large ships sunk at the piers the traffic greatly slows down, and will help them making the right decision much faster.

        For the other small ports Chekka, Jounieh, Selaata, and Sidon, a submarines blockade on the Ro-ros going there suffices. If sinking becomes acutely necessary, torpedoes should also hit some at piers, but only after unloading.

        I sincerely wish the Lebanon makes the right decision. Hey, it is simple, fix your shitty errors while it is still time!

          For the RoRo check the markings on the hull through the periscope, and launch when the hull is all the way up, it means unloading has just ended.

      Any missile fired on ISrael by hezbullah should result in an immediate missile fired on Tehran. Iran has thus far been spared. Iran is the paymaster and weapons dealer for hisbullah they need to be put on notice.

    It is always wise to act prudently.

    I was curious about this a few months ago. If you look at the Spike page on wikipedia, you’ll see that Israel has sold 10,000+ to other countries. Assuming they kept one for every one they sold, they have plenty. And that’s just one kind, not counting “flying bomb missiles” like the Spice series. Or the guided missiles fired as artillery shells. Assume Israel can destroy, with near perfect precision, the 25,000 most important buildings in Syria and Lebanon in a few days if they are attacked. Every terrorist and military structure, sure, but also every water purification and distribution system, all parts of the electrical grid, every bridge, port, airport, and tunnel. The U.N. and EU are, as usual, turning a blind eye to the attacks on Israel. You’d think they would be concerned about coping with another 20,000,000 refugees from the region.

      UNFIL (UNITED NATIONS INTERIM FORCE IN LEBANON) has been since Day One, an enabler force for terrorism, looking the other way while tunnels are being built and missile caches built up by Hezbollah.

      One need not wonder why President Trump has dismissed the UN as a worthless organization. In actual fact, it is worse than “useless.” It is an agent of evil purposefully designed to facilitate the hegemony of despotic nations under the pretext of protecting small, vulnerable nations and enabling them to direct donations from wealthy nations to build their offensive capabilities to wage war.

      The sooner the United Nations – the agent of nihilistic globalism and fascistic enablement – is disposed of, the better the world will be!
