Meanwhile, Time Magazine on Tuesday quoted an Israeli official as saying that Israel was responsible for the attack, and that the convoy had apparently included missiles with larger and more dangerous warheads than ones already in Hezbollah's possession



Since the 2006 Second Lebanon War, which saw Israel battle Hezbollah for more than a month, the militant group has built up an arsenal of tens of thousands of missiles, which are directed at population centers in Israel.
