Hizbullah guerrillas launched a Fajar-3 missile at Haifa on Sunday for the first time in an attack that killed eight people. Here are some details on the missile:

  • Origin: The Fajr-3 is an Iranian-made medium range ballistic missile. Iran announced its first successful test of the missile in April, saying it was the most advanced missile in its arsenal, was invisible to radar and could hold multiple warheads that could attack several targets at the same time.
  • Specifications: The Fajar-3 has a range of 45 kilometers and can carry a 45 kilogram warhead, making it far more deadly than the Katyusha rocket.
