According to intelligence sources, Hezbollah has more than 100,000 increasingly sophisticated rockets and missiles prepared to fire at Israel at any time, and Hezbollah tunnels into Israel were created for the express purpose of kidnapping and murdering Israeli civilians.

Today, Hezbollah's global footprint extends beyond the Middle East and Europe, with support networks in Africa, Southeast Asia, North and South America. Its operatives carry out a wide range of criminal enterprises geared toward funding and arming the group’s military and terrorist activities, which have killed thousands, including the horrific terrorist attacks in in Beirut (1983), Buenos Aires (1992 and 1994), and Burgas, Bulgaria (2012).

Eliminationist antisemitism is part and parcel of Hezbollah’s ideology, and Israeli defense experts regard Hezbollah as the country's chief security concern, guilty of murdering Jews and other civilians around the world.
