CBNNews.com - BEIRUT, Lebanon - Iran is arming Hezbollah with more advanced missiles to use in the event of an Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear installations.
A report in the London-based Arabic-language daily al-Quds al-Arabi, said the new missiles, which can reach places "Israel cannot even imagine," are one of the "surprises" promised by Hezbollah spiritual leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah.
The missiles will be fired if Israel "thinks of acting adventurously" by attacking Iran or if the US launches a war in the region.
According to the report, the new missiles are fitted with advanced navigation systems to increase their accuracy.
Iran also plans to provide anti-aircraft missile batteries to its Lebanese proxy.
According to an article in Kuwait's al-Siyasa newspaper, 300 Iranian missile experts are constructing anti-aircraft missile bases on mountains in western Lebanon.
Meanwhile, the al-Qud's report said Iran is strengthening Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip to weaken the cooperation between Hamas and Israel in the Egyptian-brokered tadhiyeh (temporary calm), which began June 19.
Iran's efforts have reportedly led to new rivalry between Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza.
