(December 6, 2018 / Israel Hayom) Hezbollah has begun mobilizing missiles from Syria to southern Lebanon in a bid to counter a potential Israeli strike, rebel-affiliated media outlets in Syria reported Thursday.
The Shiite terrorist group is reportedly concerned that the Israeli operation to neutralize its cross-border terror tunnels is the opening move to a wider military campaign, the reports said.
Syrian opposition officials said that Hezbollah was moving OTR-21 Tochka missile batteries to southern Lebanon. The OTR-21 is a Soviet-made tactical ballistic missile system ranging between 15 and 185 kilometers (9 to 115 miles).
Other reports said Hezbollah was also deploying short-range Iranian-made projectiles in southern Lebanon, adding that the group has blocked dozens of roads in the area to allow the convoy smooth transport.
