Hizbullah has been successful in restocking their missile supply after last summer's war with Israel, diplomatic sources in Beirut told Time magazine Friday. According to the report, Hizbullah currently has an estimated 20,000 short-range rockets. The report contradicted an Israeli estimate in which Hizbullah was said to have acquired only half the number of rockets that they had before the war. During the war with Israel, Hizbullah fired over 3,000 rockets. Sources in Saudi Arabia claimed that Iran and Syria were behind the rearmament, supplying the guerilla organization with enough ammo to return to its former strength. "The arms pipeline from Iran through Syria started to function even during the war," one source in Beirut said. Officials in Iran and Syria continued to deny the claim that they provided Hizbullah with arms.
