Reports: Hizbullah Obtained Naval Missiles that Could Threaten Israel


Hizbullah has been able to obtain strategic naval capabilities that could threaten Israel during any upcoming war, Israeli reports have said.

It is believed that Hizbullah was able to obtain around eight P-800 Onyx shore-to-sea missiles, also known in export markets as Yakhont, the reports said.

The party could use the Onyx missiles to “significantly threaten the Israeli Navy, the US Sixth Fleet and civilian vessels in the Mediterranean, as well as Israel's newly built oil and gas rigs,” Israeli intelligence officials stated.

“The Russian anti-ship Yakhont missile can be fired from the shore and has a range of up to 300 kilometers. Even the most advanced missile interception systems are unable to effectively intercept it,” said the reports.

in 2010 Russia delivered 72 of these to Syria. Israel bombed most of them in Lattakie. The Houthis stole them from the Syrians and they'll keep them as a "surprise" for the israeli navy. 8 of these can't sink a fleet. Many missiles are required to sink 1 ship. Sorry lads, the next war won't be a "divine" victory either. I'm telling you now so you don't repeat "law konto a3lam".

"Missiles that Could Threaten Israel"
Surely You mean
"Missiles that could dream of threatening Israel."
I wouldn't want to be in Hizballah territory when/if only one of these missiles hits an Israeli Naval Vessel.

Thank you Shlomo for your defence of Lebanon and its people. Your concern is always appreciated as your humanity and advice to Lebanese on how not to provoke Israel into committing more crimes against humanity. Now troll on to your next assigned site to monitor anything related to Israel.

Lebanon is the trash bin of the Middle East. Face reality or risk to loose your country.
