To boost [the Hizballah terrorists’] morale, Nasrallah [recently] reported the arrival of advanced weapons, including anti-tank and anti-air missiles from Libya. DEBKAfile’s sources report they were delivered to Lebanon by sea and air freighters from the Libyan capital of Tripoli.
A Hizballah purchasing mission in Tripoli and Benghazi bought the weapons from military units making up the National Transitional Council ruling Libya as an interim government. Iranian and Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood agents were on hand to pay for the merchandise on the spot.
In the briefings to his men, the Hizballah leader also dredged up a two-year old plan to use the projected massive rocket assault as cover for five commando brigades to surge into northern Israel and seize designated sectors of the Galilee up to the outskirts of Carmiel. He assured Hizballah troops that even if Israel Defense Forces units stormed into Lebanon, they were capable of taking the war across the border into enemy terrain.
