“Hezbollah Became Much Stronger Over the Past few Years” – Israel

Israeli website Rotter.net published a report, claiming that the Lebanese movement Hezbollah greatly improved itself in terms of combating, namely as a result of the ongoing war in Syria.

As an example, the report points to the recent triumph of Hezbollah against Hay’at Tahrir Al Sham (Al Nusra Front) terrorists in the eastern Lebanese region of Arsal, where all of the terrorists got exiled from the area.

The report on the  Israeli website added that Hezbollah is continuing its efforts to train and prepare its fighters for a possible war against Israel in an optimal manner, pointing out that recently Hezbollah launched its combat simulating device, focusing on fight with Israel.

The report further claims the device was designed by a group of engineers in Hezbollah.

The training ground reportedly occupies the size of 200 square meters and allows fighters to train on many weapons.

The Israeli reactions were likely triggered due to the recent opening of a new virtual shooting range at the Mleeta tourist center in southern Lebanon on Saturday, with a ceremony sponsored by Hezbollah’s top political figures and some other Lebanese ones.

The range is a closed hall of 200 square meters, which is now being used by Hezbollah, in addition to having a sophisticated combat simulation system that has been programmed very specifically for the needs of Hezbollah. 

The project was designed and supervised by a large number of Hezbollah’s own engineers and technicians and is the first of its kind in Lebanon.
