Hizbullah possesses missiles with longer ranges and larger warheads than those it possessed during the Second Lebanon War, Defense Minister Ehud Barak warned on Tuesday evening. During a tour of northern Israel, the defense minister stated that although Hizbullah "possesses over 40,000 missiles and enjoys freedom of movement in Lebanon," the terrorist organization was deterred from acting against Israel. Barak stated, however, that if Hizbullah were to seek balance-altering weapons, Israel would "weigh its options."
