Barak warns Hizbullah rocket supply larger than before the war

Hizbullah has more rockets than it did at the beginning of the Second Lebanon War, Labor head Ehud Barak said during his first appearance as defense minister before the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Monday. Barak, who briefed members on the latest security developments in the region, told the committee that the group's arms supply was only increasing and it that Israel must begin to internalize this. Amir Peretz, who was defense minister at the time of the war, said that Israel was in a coma on the eve of the war. He warned that the state must take action against the smuggling of weapons from Syria to Lebanon.
