Falaq-1 missile
The Lebanese newspaper "Al-Akhbar," associated with Hezbollah, suggested that a newly revealed missile called "Nour al-Golan" was used in the attacks, despite the weapon being in Hezbollah's possession for an extended period. The advantage of this missile lies in its ability to follow an arched trajectory, reaching targets not visible from Lebanon while transmitting images to its operators.
Hezbollah has also asserted its use of "weapons unknown to Israel" since the beginning of the war, strategically using such announcements for deterrence purposes. Notably, on Friday, Hezbollah claimed responsibility for the first time for firing "Falaq-1" missiles toward Israeli territory.
