Lebanon’s Iran-backed Hezbollah terrorist movement released an image Sunday of an anti-ship missile it says is “capable of destroying all military battleships.”
“Our new missile is capable of destroying all military battleships, killing all who are on board,” wrote the Hezbollah activist who declined to offer any evidence of his claim of the destructive power of the weapon.
The heavily armed Shi’ite group, which is backed by Iran, says it is a “resistance movement against Israeli occupation” and is known for making incredible claims of military superiority.
A Hezbollah naval commander, identified as Haj Jalal, told Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV the anti-ship missiles are of the same kind used to hit on one of the Israeli navy’s warships, the INS Hanit.
It was the first direct strike on an Israeli warship in decades and Hezbollah celebrated it as among its biggest victories of the 34-day war.
