Iran Claims Hamas and Hezbollah Have Rockets that Can Strike All of Israel

According to an Iranian general, Hamas and Hezbollah both possess arsenals that “are able now to attack all targets from southern to northern parts of [Israel],” according to a report Wednesday in The Times of Israel.

Citing Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency, the Times quoted  Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Sayed Majid Moussavi boasting about the missile arsenals of the two terrorist groups.

“Considering the range of their missiles, they are able now to attack all targets from southern to northern parts of [Israel],” Moussavi said.

Hamas and Hezbollah’s “missile capability includes a vast, but of course hidden, number of Fateh-class missiles,” he said.

The Fateh-class missiles have a range of 200 kilometers.

The longest-range missiles previously known to be in Hamas’ possession are the M-302, which were able to reach near Haifa this past summer during Operation Protective Edge.
