Iran claims that it has supplied Hizbullah in Lebanon with hundreds of long-range missiles, capable of hitting Israel’s nuclear installation in the southern city of Dimona.
Revolutionary Guard Aerospace Force Brig. Gen. Seyed Majid Moussavi told Fars news agency that the projectiles, called Fateh missiles, fly at a speed of 2,800 miles per hour, with a 160-220 mile range, and can carry a 1,100 pound warhead.
“The missiles that Iran most recently gave to Hizbullah will allow the organization to reach every point in Israel, including the most guarded facilities,” Moussavi said.
Meanwhile, a newspaper in Saudi Arabia reported that Lebanese security forces arrested the owner of a vacation property in southern Lebanon for spying for Israel on Hizbullah and the Lebanese political and security systems. The owner was also accused of recruiting people for an Israeli spying ring.
