Israel has attacked “dozens” of arms shipments on their way to the terrorist group Hezbollah, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledged, according to Jewish News Agency (JTA).


“We act when we need to act, including here, across the border, in dozens of strikes, to prevent Hezbollah from obtaining game-changing weaponry,” he said Monday in an address to the soldiers during a visit to an Israeli military exercise in the Golan Heights, according to Israeli news reports, JTA wrote.

“We are also working on other fronts, near and far, but we are doing it intelligently," said Netanyahu.
