Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Non-state actors now have the capability to destroy point targets, a military asset formerly only available for state actors.  This ability destabilizes the military dynamic of the Middle East by allowing non-state actors, e.g., Hezbollah, to attack targets inside of Israel, e.g., Israeli Air Force bases.  It also destabilizes the economic dynamic of the Middle East by allowing non-state actors, e.g., Hezbollah, to attack the infrastructure of Israel, e.g., electric power plants.  

Expect this kind of Aktion to rapidly move to other areas of the world where a minority have deeply felt grievances and a history of violence to express those grievances, e.g., Kashmir, insurgencies against foreign invasion, e.g., Iraq, and terrorist groups having territorial ambitions, e.g., ISIS.
