Yep, here it is:
The IDF also believes that it seriously damaged the long-range rocket array in the first night of air strikes almost three weeks ago and impaired Hizbullah's ability to fire the rockets.
The longer-range Zelzal missiles, manufactured by Iran and capable of reaching Tel Aviv, have also not been fired at Israel, and the IDF believes this is because it destroyed almost two-thirds of these in the Hizbullah arsenal.

Ah this clarifies a lot. How could Israel believe it destroyed or damaged the long range rockets in the first night while:
-While Israel's intelligence forces weren't capable of indentifying Hezbollah's weaponry, including it's mid- and long range missiles
-Several days after the conflict started Hezbollah launched its first mid range missile, which came as a total surprise.
Sounds strange claiming you have destroyed something of which you didn't know it actually existed. In my opinion yet another piece of Zionist propaganda.
