Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said Sunday that Israel had provided no proof that Hizbullah used advanced Russian-produced anti-tank missiles during the recent war. An Israeli delegation that was in Moscow two weeks ago complained that Hizbullah had been in possession of Russian-made 'Kornet' guided missiles. Ivanov dismissed Israel's claims as "total nonsense" and said they reflected "internal problems in Israeli politics."
