A senior Israeli military official told The Media Line that Israel has prepared a partial evacuation plan for areas close to the border with Lebanon in case of a renewed round of fighting with pro-Iranian Hezbollah guerrillas. He confirmed media reports that Hezbollah has more than 100,000 rockets that can cover all of Israel, but said “90 percent” of them are short-range rockets, with a range of about 28 miles.  “We know that (Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan) Nasrallah

wants to harm Israeli civilians and he is using psychological warfare against our citizens,” he said in an exclusive briefing with The Media Line. “But we also believe that Nasrallah is acting out of weakness because he has lost about 1500 fighters in Syria.”The condition of the briefing was that no identifying titles of the officer or where the briefing took place be published.  Hezbollah has been fighting on behalf of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Syria for the past six years and is credited, along with Russia and Iran, for helping to turn the tide of the war in favor of Assad.
