Iranian Revolutionary Guard reportedly delivered Fateh-110 missiles to terror group via Syria
Iran has supplied the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah with missiles capable of reaching the southern Israeli city of Dimona and its nuclear reactor, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.
According to the report, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards delivered Fateh-110 missiles – 500 kilogram warheads that have a range of between 250 and 350 kilometers – to the Islamist group via Tehran's ally, Syria.
With the shipment Hezbollah will be able to reach all of Israel, "including targets in the occupied south," Brigadier-General Sayed Majid Moussavi told Fars.
"Dimona is an easy target," he added.
Israel reportedly targeted a shipment of similar missiles last year near the airport in Damascus.
The report comes as Iran and world powers face an uphill struggle to break the deadlock in their high-stakes nuclear negotiations and secure a historic deal on the eve of a deadline.
Last week, Moussavi issued a similar warning to Israel, declaring that Palestinian Islamist groups as well as Hezbollah were supplied with advanced Iranian weapons.
In the past year, Israel is said to have attacked six missile-laden convoys, as well as missile storage sites, both in Syria and Lebanon, in a bid to prevent Syria from delivering anti-aircraft and other types of missiles to Hezbollah.
The missiles are by way of Syrian payment for Hezbollah's support of President Bashar Assad's regime, which has helped him turn the tide against the rebels seeking to unseat him.
A senior Israeli military expert told the Associated Press last year that Fateh-110 missiles could constitute a "game-changer" since they are highly accurate and a "threat to Israel's infrastructure and military installations."
