Hezbollah’s Evolving Combat Tactics

Hezbollah’s combat methods have developed over time. Initially, the attacks involved sniper fire, artillery and mortar shell fire, anti-tank guided missiles (ATGM) and rockets. After approximately three weeks, Hezbollah introduced “suicide” UAVs, heavy Burkan rockets, whose warheads weigh between 300 and 500 kgs (660 and 1,100 lbs), and began using a double-barreled launcher to fire anti-tank guided missiles, with approximately half a second between launches. In January 2024 Hezbollah began using more advanced weapons, such as al-Mas electro-optic anti-tank missiles, with a range of approximately 8 kilometers (5 miles), and heavy Falaq-1 rockets. It also began to issue threats, claiming that if Israel waged a war with Lebanon it would use more sophisticated weapons.
