#1 Oops, Fred is way ahead of me!

The missile (I use that because of range, not accuracy, as they didn't hit anything) was called a Khaibar-1 by Hezbollah - but I can find nothing on it anywhere, so it's probably just another Iranian mid-range POS renamed for the usual imaginary PR purposes.

#2 Fox reporting Israel says it's probably a Fajr-5, range 75km, 90kg warhead.

#5 ( Israeli Air Force planes have bombed Hizbullah position in southern Lebanon villages, including one where the longer-range rockets were fired on Afula Friday afternoon, according to Army Radio. The IAF also struck buildings and weapons storage depots belonging to Hizbullah terrorists as well as access routes in the village of Habush, north of the Israeli border.

Military spokesmen revealed that the army on Thursday killed a senior Hizbullah terrorist who was responsible for transporting longer range missile from Syria. His car was targeted while he was moving the weapons, and other terrorists in his vehicle also were killed.

#6 The above would be this guy:

Earlier Friday, the IDF confirmed that Nur Shalhov, a senior Hizbullah official who was responsible for smuggling weapons into Lebanon, including the long-range missile array the organization possesses that can reach deep into Israel, was killed Thursday in an IAF strike.

Shalhov was hit by IAF missiles while traveling in a car in the Bekaa Valley, and a number of other Hizbullah operatives were also killed in the attack. The car was packed with missiles when it was hit. Shalhov was the second high-ranking Hizbullah official that the army has confirmed dead since the beginning of the conflict.

#8 Hizbullah Fires New Longer-Range Missile

I recommend a simple force-multiplying formula that swiftly responds to new incoming range and payload parameters with a concomitant tenfold increase in returned throw-weight.

#9 The IDF is crawling because they know what I know: this conflict will have to escalate because Israelis know that the enemy is capable of devising an effective missile threat, beyond this conflict. When Tel Aviv is struck with long range missiles, the nukes will fly. Israel can do it without immediate White House support, because they know that they have Congressional and public support.


Teheran will be spared, because after day one, the Ayatollahs will be swung from lampposts.
