Hezbollah’s Vast Missile And Drone Arsenal Poses Major Threat to Israel, Analysts Warn

As Hezbollah continues to launch near-daily attacks on northern Israel, concerns are growing about the terror group’s vast weapons arsenal and its potential to inflict significant damage on Israel in a full-scale war. According to a report by the Washington Post, Hezbollah has stockpiled an estimated 130,000 to 150,000 rockets and missiles, including low-grade unguided munitions and precision-guided missiles.

While the majority of Hezbollah’s weapons are considered low-grade, they could still overwhelm Israel’s aerial defenses if launched in large enough quantities.

“How many [Iron Dome interceptors] do they have left?” asked Fabian Hinz, a defense and military analyst at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, referencing Israel’s already-depleted stockpile.

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah has also claimed that the group possesses precision-guided missiles, although they have never been publicly revealed. Additionally, the group’s short-range “Fatah” ballistic missile, which can travel 155 to 186 miles and contains 992 to 1,1012 pounds of explosives, poses a significant threat to Israel’s air defense capabilities.

Shaan Shaikh, a fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and deputy director of its Missile Defense Project, expressed concerns about Israel’s ability to defend against Fatah missiles and others like it. “How effective are David’s Sling and Arrow interceptors against these missiles?” he asked. “Can the IDF detect, track, and fire on these missiles while they’re being prepped for launch?”
