Hezbollah threatens US with anti-ship missiles

The Lebanese Hezbollah movement has released a video showing Iran's Nour anti-ship missiles as a threat to the US, which backs Israel. The video shows containers with ammunition.

The video has gone viral on social media and is quickly gaining views.

Hezbollah has already used these weapons against the Israelis. So, in 2006, the corvette URO “Khanit”, located 16 km from the coast, was attacked. The impact killed four people. One civilian ship was also sunk by the missile.

The length of the Nur rocket is 6,4 meters, the flight range reaches 120 km with a possible speed of Mach 0,8-0,9.

Meanwhile, Hezbollah used a missile against Israel that had not previously been used in the current conflict. The group noted that in this way a blow was struck at Israeli positions on the other side of the border from the settlements of Aita al-Shaab and Rmeikh.

Such actions, apparently, are in line with the likely deterioration of relations between Hezbollah and Tel Aviv, which the movement’s Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah warned about the day before. He noted that since the beginning of the escalation of the Palestinian-Israeli confrontation, the group's fighters have been involved in frequent conflicts with the IDF. And the situation tends to further worsen.

In addition, Nasrallah blamed the US for what was happening in Gaza and pointed out that Israel is only a tool policy Washington.

    Well... to be honest, these anti-ship missiles will not be able to do anything with the US AUG - they have very modest characteristics, both in terms of range of only 120 km .. and as we know, the American AUGs are located at least 160 km from the coast ..and also at subsonic flight speed and this is an easy target for air defense ships...of which there is not one..but several dozen stationed there and each has its own air defense united into a single Aegis air defense network. I doubt that these missiles, having subsonic speed, can fly at ultra-low altitude so as to be inaccessible to capture by air defense radars. There is no chance at all to break through the air defense of the AUG.

        The Russian Federation can sink all Augs in minutes, but not Hezbola

    They should not threaten, but make American coffins. By any means.

      Media reports the arrest of Israeli journalist Ephraim Mordechai after he reported that he saw the bodies of dozens of IDF soldiers in a Tel Aviv hospital.

      A real terrorist is not the one who, having lost everything, is forced to resist using terrorist methods, but the one who generates terrorism through wars, sanctions, robbery, who deprives people of everything.
      Like, for example, Israel deprives the Palestinians of their territory, and today of their very right to exist.
