The Iranian-proxy terrorist group Hezbollah based in Lebanon has acquired new sophisticated rockets from Iran that are capable of hitting Israel’s nuclear plant in Dimona, according to reports Saturday in the semi-official Iranian Fars News Agency.
The reports indicate the terrorist group has gotten its hands on new Fateh-class rockets that feature a range of 350 kilometers (over 200 miles), and which can carry a warhead weighing up to a half-ton.
“Considering the range of the rockets possessed by the organization, Hezbollah can now attack every point in Israel, from the south to the north,” General Seyed Majid Moussavi of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard told the paper.
Iranian military sources were quoted in the report saying that the supply of advanced weaponry to terrorist groups Hezbollah and Hamas is at the head of Iran’s priorities, so that they can attack “the bloodthirsty Zionist enemy.”
According to estimations, Hezbollah already has a rocket arsenal ten times as powerful as that of Hamas, and the IDF has assessed that like Hamas, Hezbollah likely is digging terror tunnels into Israel so as to attack.
Aside from gaining weapons from Iran, Hezbollah also is estimated to possibly benefit in a $3 billion arms deal the Lebanese army recently sealed with France. Reports have already revealed how weapons and intelligence make their way from the army to Hezbollah, which in fact has an influential presence in the army.
The report comes as Iranian nuclear talks continue ahead of a November 24 deadline. US President Barack Obama said overnight he doesn’t intend to fully remove sanctions on Iran.
However, US officials have revealed Obama is cozying up to Iran, Hamas and Hezbollah. Forty-three US senators wrote to Obama last Wednesday to express their concerns at reports Obama intends to bypass congress to seal a deal with Iran.
