Hizbullah admits to holding largest ever exercise on border

More Muslim hubris. Via JPost:

Hizbullah held its largest ever training exercise near southern Lebanon's border with Israel in preparation for a response to any Israeli offensive, the Shi'ite group's deputy leader, Sheikh Naim Kassem said Thursday. Sawat al-Balad quoted Kassem as saying that the exercise staged last week involved "enormous and important" maneuvers that were carried out so that the group "won't be caught by surprise."According to the leader, Hizbullah had acquired a weapons arsenal that was capable of reaching all parts of Israel.

"The exercise was unrestricted and was meant to cover all of the territory of the Zionist entity and not simply to strengthen our forces," Kassem claimed.

The operatives were unarmed during the maneuver, Kassem claimed.
