Hezbollah is believed to have a massive stockpile of more than 100,000 different missiles and rockets. This equipment is "pointed at Israel and hidden in civilian infrastructure," Zehavi said. It is likely that at least a portion of these missiles could strike deep into central Israel. In just the past week, Zehavi’s Alma Center uncovered 28 separate launch bases scattered throughout Beirut, including bases hidden in soccer fields, churches, and homes. It is likely that many more are hidden even closer to Israel’s northern border.
Hezbollah also has brazenly established bases along the Lebanese border with Israel. Zehavi said she has identified several installations flying flags depicting Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, who was killed by an American drone in January.
"I'm coming to get you," the flags indicate, according to Zehavi. "If Iran will give an order to Hezbollah to attack Israel … Hezbollah will have to follow the order."
While many in the West believe that Iran and its terror proxies are not seeking a full-scale war given the global tumult resulting from the coronavirus, Zehavi disagrees. She said that recent tensions point to a "growing interest" by Hezbollah’s Iranian leaders to strike Israel.
