The Telegraph published evidence that Syria ,Russia and Iran were involved with supplying weapons for the Hezbollah. One of the last paragraphs quotes Netanyahu:
Benjamin Netanyahu, the Likud Party leader and a rival, said:
"There were many failures - failures on identifying the threat, failures in
preparing to meet the threat, failures in the management of the war, failures in
the management of the home front."
Netanyahu had a leading role as a finance minister in cutting military project budgets (such as the Merkava tank). Israeli newspapers claim that a new tank system that counters the Russian anti-tank missiles has already been developed, but the Israeli government decided not to produce it for the Israeli Defence Force before the US army ordered it ( larger quantities makes each item cheaper to manufacture ).
