During a security briefing in Tel Aviv Lt. General Yuval Halamish from the Military Intelligence said that “Hizbullah has over 10,000 rockets amassed for many years in storage.”
Halamish also spoke about the incident where a navy ship was struck by a missile off the shores of Beirut: “This is an Iranian missile that Hizbullah has, we will investigate and draw conclusions.”
Tel Aviv was put on rocket alert.
Israel’s military Homefront Command on Sunday issued an advisory to residents of Tel Aviv to be vigilant for possible sirens warning of incoming rockets.
While Hezbollah’s barrages have so far been limited to northern Israel, military officials said the advisory was meant to give residents of Tel Aviv a chance to prepared their bomb shelters should the rocket range extend further south.
Israel believes Hezbollah has rockets capable of reaching as far as Beersheba.
