Alleged location Hezbollah claimed was hit by its anti-tank missile
On Friday, Lebanese news outlet Al Akhbar reported that the anti-tank missile seen in the video is an ATGM (Anti-Tank Guided Missile), and it was seen in the video for the first time, despite being in use by Hezbollah for some time. Its operation mechanism is similar to the Kornet missile, transmitting images of its trajectory.
According to the newspaper, the missile's advantage lies in its ability to fly in an arc and reach concealed targets. The fact that it transmits images allows the identification of the target prior to the strike itself. Al Akhbar claimed the video raised concerns within the IDF regarding Hezbollah's capability to target concealed tanks.
