Al-Akhbar, the Hezbollah-linked network, reported on Friday that this is a guided missile that was revealed for the first time, although it has been in use by Hezbollah for some time, and it transmits images of its trajectory as it flies in an arch-like manner to hit hidden targets. The Lebanese Al-Mayadeen network also published information about the attack on the outpost on Friday. The missile has a modern Russian-made system that was modified in Iran and is similar to the Kornet missile.
The report also detailed the capabilities of the "Falk" system, and it was stated that it was in Hezbollah's possession already in the 1990s. The name "Falk" means "dawn" - and there is even a sura (chapter) in the Koran, number 113, called by this name.
