Hezbollah Fires Off Another Large Iranian Rocket Into Israel

It looks like another atypical and large terror weapon was shot into Israel on Friday…

Hezbollah is helping Iran with their plan to wipe out Israel. Iran has had this plan for a while now and certainly before Ahmadinejad became president last year:

Six Shihab-3 missiles, bearing the slogans “Israel must be wiped off the map” and “We will crush America under our feet,” were the stars of the 22 September 2003 military parade in Tehran marking the anniversary of the start of the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war, the beginning of what Iran calls “holy defense” week. Other missiles displayed at the parade, according to state television on 22 September, were the Nazeat-6, Nazeat-10, Zezal, Maverick, Hawk, Tondar-69, Fateh-110, Scud B, SAM-6, surface-to-surface naval missiles, Fajr air-to-surface missiles, and long-range shore-to-sea missiles.

On Friday, July 28, 2006, Hezbollah shot off a Fajr 5 long range rocket (Khaibar-1) into Israel:

Hezbollah launched a new kind of rocket Friday that made the deepest strike into Israel yet, rattling Israelis as their warplanes and artillery targeted guerrillas in attacks on apartment buildings and roads.

The guerrillas said they used the Khaibar-1 — named after the site of a historic battle between Islam’s Prophet Muhammad and Jewish tribes in the Arabian peninsula — to strike the Israeli town of Afula.

Unlike the mainstream news, The New Editor is not fooled by Hezbollah’s media campaign.

Blue Crab Boulevard has a special soldier in Iraq’s perspective on Israel and the latest news on Hezbollah is interesting.

Update: Hezbollah fired off 5 Khybar 1 rockets deep into Israel on Friday.

There was great fanfare on the radio in announcing the new firing of the long range rockets:

Hezbollah’s al-Manar radio station announced the launch with a fanfare, saying that it had fired five Khybar 1 missiles — which are named after a Jewish tribe near Medina and the battle in which they fought early followers of the Prophet Muhammad.

However, Israeli experts said that the missiles might simply have been renamed Fajers. Hezbollah has already used the Iranian-made Fajer-3 to hit Haifa, but has not yet used the longer-ranger Fajer-5.
