Part 3 of Israel, Iran and Hezbollah: Hezbollah's Missiles and How Hezbollah Might Attack Israel

As I have mentioned, I am looking at the possibility that if Israel attacks Iran's nuclear program, the Iranians will order their Shiite client Hezbollah in Lebanon to strike Israel.  Here is Part I and Part II of this series.  This post will look at Hezbollah's capabilities to hit Israeli targets.

Two weeks ago, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah stated that Hezbollah now had the capability to strike anywhere in Israel.  According to Reuters, Nasrallah stated in his speech:
"Today we are not only able to hit Tel Aviv as a city but, God willing, we are able to hit specific targets in Tel Aviv and anywhere in occupied Palestine," Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said in a televised address.
Given that Hezbollah now has 60,000 missiles of all types, it seems more than likely that Nasrallah's claims are correct.  One interesting fact is that Hezbollah is even claiming that it has plans to use ground forces to capture Israeli territory in northern Israel's Gallilee region.  While this is unlikely, it does demonstrate Hezbollah's clear plans to very aggressive in any war with Israel.  The various images in this post take a look at Hezbollah's capabilities.
