An Israeli airstrike in Lebanon on Monday destroyed at least one long-range Iranian missile capable of hitting Tel Aviv, military officials said. The officials said Israeli aircraft targeted a truck carrying the weapons before they could be launched. The force of the blast sent at least one missile flying into the air, but it fell nearby. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity under military regulations. During nearly a week of fighting, Hizbullah operatives have fired missiles up to 40 kilometers (25 miles) into Israel. But officials have raised concerns the guerrilla group could strike Tel Aviv, about 125 kilometers (80 miles) south of the border with Lebanon.
