A terrorist group named “Islamic Jihad” announced the attack on Israel with an Iranian-made ballistic missile.
Palestinian group is thought to have up to 30,000 unguided rockets, hundreds of guided anti-tank missiles, and perhaps 10,000 mortar rounds.
The radical Islamist movement “Islamic Jihad” announced the use of the latest Iranian ballistic missile “Haj Qassem”, which has a radius of destruction of up to one thousand kilometers and according to official data, can develop a speed at the moment of striking at a speed of sound.
Taking into account the statement of representatives of the “Islamic Jihad”, strikes on Israeli territory with the use of this missile will be carried out tonight, however, it is obvious that the launcher is located outside the territory of the Gaza Strip, which does not exclude the possibility that the launch may have been carried out either from the territory of the neighboring Syria, or from the territory of neighboring Lebanon.
“Abu Hamza, spokesman for the Al-Quds battalions of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement said that today, a number of weapons are involved in Sword Quds, including the Qasim missile. This missile, which is one of the most advanced resistance missiles, is called the “Rocket of the Martyr Hajj Qasem Suleimani”.
