Destruction of Ben Gurion Airport with Fateh-110 Rockets Will Take Hezbollah Less Than 3 Minutes
Coinciding with the "warm winter" maneuvers at the end of January and after the Israeli threat to bomb Beirut airport, if Iranian weapons are smuggled through the Lebanese capital's airport for the benefit of the resistance, one may ask whether Lebanon is also capable of bombing Israel's Ben Gurion airport.
We do not need to wait for an official statement to answer this question, as the Lebanese resistance has already announced its ability to target and hit any point in the Hebrew state throughout occupied Palestine, thanks to precision missiles or air drones. Although Hezbollah does not usually declare a rocket and weapons arsenal that has not yet been used, the hint was clearto experts. Some intelligence reports and media claims came to determine the identity of this missile and its features.
If we search Iranian or Syrian military products for the missile qualified to meet the ability to retaliate, the answer will appear bright and automatically: Iran's Fateh-110 and Syria's M-600 .
If Ben Gurion Airport is targeted by a Fateh-110 missile, the missile speed of Mach 4, or more than 4770 kilometers per hour, allows the strike to be less than two minutes if launched from southern Lebanon, and approximately 3 minutes if launched from the Bekaa or the north.
TheFTAH110 is a solid-fuel surface-to-surface missile produced by the Aviation Industries Organization of Iran. This missile was upgraded from the Zelzal-2 missile by adding aguidance system; later versions of the missile aimed to modify a number of other aspects as well as improve range and payload. A similar to this missile was made in Syria, where it was called the M-600 missile, and it was used by the Syrian state and the supporters of the Iranian forces that support it during the Syrian civil war.
After the first Gulf War, Iran discovered that it needed an accurate short-range missile because its Zelzal-1 and Nazaat missiles were unguided missiles and therefore very inaccurate. Accordingly, Tehran purchased 200 short-range S-75 Dvina missiles from China in 1989, which did not satisfy the Iranians due to their poor range and huge structure; it asked Shahid Bagheri Industries to design and produce a short-range guided missile.
Development began in 1995; it was decided to develop a new missile based on the Zelzal-2 missile. Syria has reportedly also joined the program and released its M-600 version.
By 2006, the U.S. Treasury Department accused China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation of playing a leading role in the development of Fateh-110 missiles, asserting that Iran had no previous experience with solid-fuel ballistic missiles. Tehran conducted its first tests of this missile in 2002 and succeeded in doing so before the authorities responsible for officially starting production announced
The first generation of these missiles was tested in September 2002; The initial range of the missile was about 200 kilometers (120 miles) and by September 2004 Tehran announced the second generation of the missile, which it said had a range of 250 kilometers (160 miles), and the third generation of the missile was unveiled in 2010, where its range became 300 kilometers (190 miles), Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi stated that the accuracy, range and reaction time were improving. He also talked about the storage capacity of such missiles in different regions of the country. Immediately afterwards, Iranian television provided footage of the test and its impact. The missiles were later delivered to the Revolutionary Guards. While the fourth generation was released in 2012 and this generation focused on improving the accuracy of the rocket
As is customary among Iranian designers, derived and modified versions of this rocket have been developed from it.
As of 2008, Syria began developing the M-600 missile, which is mainly based on the second-generation Fateh-110 missile.
The Israeli press claimed in 2010 that Syria had given hundreds of M-600 missiles to Hezbollah.
Anti-ship ballistic missiles
In 2011, Iran unveiled an anti-ship ballistic missile it called the Persian Gulf missile, an upgraded missile from the Fateh-110 missile, which also has a range of 300 kilometers (190 miles), as is the case with the third version of the Fateh.
In 2017, Iran published photos and videos of the test launch of the Hormuz-2 missile, which it said hit the target 250 kilometers (160 miles) away, while local media described the Hormuz-2 as an anti-ship ballistic missile and an anti-radar missile.
Zulfiqar is a ballistic missile, believed to be developed from the Fateh-110 missile, the first ballistic missile that Iran has openly used in a foreign dispute. Unlike other members of the Fateh family, which are often described as semi-ballistic missiles, Zulfiqar follows the path of ballistic missiles and has a range of up to 700 kilometers (430 miles) and was actually used in the 2017 Deir Ezzor missile attack; however, doubts have been raised about the missile's true accuracy and its accuracy has been said to be low to To some extent
Zulfiqar and possibly other members of the Fateh-110 family are believed to be using satellite navigation systems to improve accuracy
In 2018, Iran unveiled the Fateh-Mobin missiles, an upgraded missile group than the Fateh-110 missile. According to Iranian Defense Minister Amir Hatami, this missile can be re-equipped with members of the Fateh or Zulfiqar family. It is believed that the Fatih Pine missile relies on infrared imaging in the guidance process
As of 2017, some sources said Iran had fewer than 100 launchers for all types of Fateh-110 missiles.
Israel said yesterday 3 and 5, 2013, that it had struck an arms shipment containing Fateh-110 missiles destined for Hezbollah; Israel said it would not tolerate "game-changing weapons" falling into Hezbollah's hands. By May 18 of the same year, Israeli media claimed that the Syrian army had directed a batch of Tishreen missiles—the Syrian version of Iran's Fateh-110 missile—toward Tel Aviv, according to reconnaissance satellite imagery, believing that these missiles could be used as a "deterrent" against other Israeli airstrikes on Syrian targets. According to unnamed U.S. military officials, the Syrian government fired at least two Fateh-110 missiles in late December 2012; The rocket launches appear to have been in an attempt to target Syrian opposition factions more precisely.
In late November 2014, Iranian and Lebanese sources confirmed that Hezbollah had received Iranian Fateh-110 ballistic missiles and included them in its missile arsenal. Given the range of these rockets between 250-350 kilometers (160-220 miles), if fired from Lebanon, they would be able to hit any targets anywhere in Israel up to the northern Negev.
Israel has seen the delivery of such rockets as a justification for a "pre-emptive response" as it has begun attacking missile shipments, transport convoys, and storage sites in Syria and Lebanon to prevent Hezbollah from acquiring these and other types of rockets. According to the Zionist claim, it has not dared to bomb Lebanon or even breach its borders for years.
