"Shield" naval defense plan to cost extra 3 billion shekels ($757 million), includes four new ships and advanced equipment • Hezbollah trying to stockpile sophisticated anti-ship missiles • Rigs expected to supply 70 percent of Israel's gas needs; if they are compromised Israel could be brought to a standstill.
