Hezbollah Has Fired 3,333 Rockets
Hezbollah passed a symmetrical and staggering number this morning, firing its 3333th rocket at Israeli civilians.
Hezbollah guerrillas fired more 100 rockets at Israeli towns on Wednesday — raising the total since the start of the conflict to 3,333 — including several medium-range missiles that landed near the West Bank town of Jenin and south of the Israeli city of Afula, police said. By mid-afternoon, the guerrillas had fired 132 rockets, but no casualties were immediately reported, said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld
That a terrorist group could amass such an arsenal is stunning. It’s a good reminder that, contrary to conventional wisdom, the era of state-sponsored terrorism is still with us, despite the success of relative independents like al Qaeda.
