Jerusalem Post Israeli research center finds 28 new Hezbollah missile launch sites ALMA says never-before-published sites are deep in heart of residential areas in Beirut, next to hospitals, restaurants, schools. By ANNA AHRONHEIM There are at least 28 missile launching sites belonging to Hezbollah in civilian areas in the Lebanese capital of Beirut, a report by ALMA Research and Education Center has found. The report found that the never-before-published sites concentrated mainly in Hezbollah-dominated areas of Beirut are related to the launch, storage and production of the group’s Fateh 110/M600 medium-range missiles and are “the same as those subject to the Hezbollah precision-guided missile project (PGMs).” “The world must understand and know that these launch sites are located at the heart of residential and urban civil infrastructure,” Tal Beeri, head of the Research department at ALMA Center, told The Jerusalem Post.

American Military News For first time ever, US officially rejects China’s ‘unlawful’ South China Sea claims by Laura Widener The U.S. released its very first official statement rejecting most China’s territorial claims in the South China Sea as “unlawful.”The official document released Monday afternoon by the U.S. State Department stated, “Beijing’s claims to offshore resources across most of the South China Sea are completely unlawful, as is its campaign of bullying to control them.”The document rejects China’s claims to certain territories, such as James Shoal, located 50 nautical miles from Malaysia, as well as other specific territories off the coasts of Vietnam, Indonesia, and the Philippines. China has claimed some of these territories in its “Nine-Dashed Line” claim announced in 2009, despite these territories being located up to 1,000 nautical miles away from China’s coast.
