Lebanese Hezbollah militants threaten Israel with long range rockets

May 29, 2006 

According to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah has new long-range rockets. These replace the short-term rockets that Hezbollah fires occasionally on Israel, since 1995. The last fire was on May 28, 2006. A few rockets were fired toward a military base on the Meyron Mountain, about 10 km. away from the Northern border. The base was damaged, and one soldier was injured.

The long range artillery rocket Zelzal-2 is made in Iran. If obtained by Hezbollah and fired from south Lebenon the rockets are capable of hitting targets and causing damage on most of Israel's large cities, including Tel-Aviv and southern center Be'er Sheva.
