Hezbollah terrorists have Russian anti-ship missiles that can attack US ships — media
The Hezbollah terrorist organization may have Russian Yakhont anti-ship missiles, which they can use to attack US warships
This was reported by Reuters, citing its own sources.
Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah warned Washington last week that his group had prepared "something" for US ships deployed in the region after Hamas terrorists attacked Israel.
Instead, two sources in Lebanon familiar with the terrorists' arsenal say he was referring to Russian-made Yakhont anti-ship missiles with a range of 300 kilometers.
Media and analysts' reports for years have indicated that Hezbollah acquired these missiles from Syria. However, the terrorists have never confirmed the presence of the weapons.
Hezbollah perceives US warships as a direct threat because of their ability to strike the group and its allies. However, Nasrallah said that US ships in the Mediterranean "do not scare us and will not scare us."
- On November 3, the leader of the Iranian-backed Lebanese group Hezbollah warned the United States that if Israel does not stop its offensive on Gaza, the conflict could escalate into a regional war.
