Hezbollah doubled the size of its missile arsenal in 2020 and has the entire territory of Israel inside the range of its precision missiles, the movement’s secretary-general Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah declared on December 27.
“Any target across the area of occupied Palestine that we want to hit accurately, we are able to hit accurately,” Nasrallah said.
The Hezbollah leader also claimed that flights of Israeli drones in Lebanese skies reflect the “confusion” of Tel Aviv.
“The flight of Zionist drones in Lebanon’s airspace shows a strong fear of the response by the resistance.
The Israelis know that we fired the right weapon at their drones without disclosing it,” he said.
Nasrallah also said that the US-backed normalization agreements between several Arab states and Israel were not surprising since “most of the Arab regimes used to sell the Palestinians only words.”
These agreements, Nasrallah said, only helped to end a period of “hypocrisy” and indicated that “the masks have fallen” and that the real nature of the leadership of these states has been exposed.
Just a few days ago, on December 25, the Israeli Air Force struck several targets in Syria claiming that the strike hit Iranian and Hezbollah-affiliated targets. According to Syrian sources, the main target was the defense factories in the Misyaf region.
Meanwhile, Israeli media reported that Tel Aviv sent a submarine towards the Persian Gulf as a warning message to Iran. The move followed a recent deployment of a US Navy nuclear submarine in the gulf made under the same pretext.
Israeli and US sources have already claimed that Iran is preparing attacks on their forces in the Middle East and threaten it with a military response.
Stand tall Iran, your calm persistence has brought the snakes out of their dens!
Israel’s Dimona nuclear reactor is Hezbollah’s and Iran’s nuclear weapon against Israel. Its why Iran doesn’t need or want nuclear weapons.
It will give off more radiation then 10 nuclear bombs when it is destroyed leaving much of israel un-inhabital for some time.
Just look at Chernobyl or the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disasters. The no go zones around both are still bigger then Israel.
if Israel and the so called superior master race had any brains they would dismantle the reactor for this reason alone.
Iran doesnt need Nukes ‘cos Israel is such a pissy walk over. Only a 5 day lang saturation conventional strike on Haifa and Tel Aviv by Hezbollah will brink the ZioThief state of Israel to a halt. They know it, thats why they will never attack Iran. Waiting for Attack Dog USA to do it. Cowardly P@ssy IDF – only good for attacking unarmed Pals, women children in occupied territories
May the blessings of the Creator be with the people of Iran! They will be victorious in the upcoming world war.
Is because some illiterates believe in a fantasy creator that wars are still going on.
Trump + Bibi = Bluff
If this sub gets close to Iran, an Iranian Kilo submarine should shadow it……and get a few pings off of it.
Kilo is no match to İsrael’s Dolphin..
it depends what kind of Kilo class and the crew…
İrans’ kilo and its armaments…
Israel has very little ASW experience, not long ago a Russian nuclear sub cased its coastline for a long period of time without being detected.
Why is it not? Present day Kilos are called black holes, meaning they are hard to detect. It be a be a torpedo battle. Russian manned Kilo 636 would eat the dolphin sub for lunch. No pun intended.
Simply put İrans Kilo 25-30 years old and İsrael Dolphin has Air propulsion system..
Big deal, the dolphin can stay submerged longer, so you think older diesel subs cannot sink same size and larger subs? Israel has no practical experience in ASW, the Dolphin was acquired to deploy some nuclear tipped cruise missiles on them.
Why don’t you read where a Kilo 636 Russian sub played a cat and mouse game with a British nuclear sub and prevented it from launching cruise missiles in Syria at the time of the allied cruise missile strike fiasco?
With super cavitation torpedoes there is no way you can sink brand new Dolphin with Air propulsion system..İrans torpedo Old school russian shkval..fast torpedo without guidance system..these cannot stick control surfaces outside their bubbles it goes in a straight line and they are prone to miss the targets..
Because of its speed and non-existence of guidance sytem its extremely loud..They cannot diffrenciate betwen an enemy ship,decoy or rock..Any submarine launching sup.cavitating torpedeo will give away its position in the blink of an eye..
I am not talking about super cavitation torpedoes…..here have read.
Iran Submarine Capabilities | NTIwww
Dont get offended ı dont have to read about sub-marines .. and ı am talking about İsrael submarine vs İran submarine….İrans submarine fleet is promising nothing atm..Thats why they are investing to cost effective solutions which is Mine warfare,,Their only and deadly advantage is mines especially smart mines like the chinese em-52..These mines sit on the sea floor and propel themselves upwards into the underside of the ship.its very challenging to detect and it even penetrates carriers hull..Usa and israel is afraid of mine warfare,thats all..
Mine warfare is more economical, however, Iran currently has 7 diesel subs and 27 mini subs. And Israel does not have any proven ASW capability.
Maybe its the most difficult thing to find sources about asw and electronic warfare and its practical output ..but israel is doing asw exercises with Usa…
I agrree in perspectives often are from old days.
We fx seldom see tanks against tanks in battles, so why stil constructs tansks for that.
There are many ways to destroy subs. I remember the nazis had a safe place in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, but USA rebuilded heavy armed Catalinas, which could take the distance out there.
So I say the same as You. It makes no sense if USA and for that matter Israel just accept they are sitting ducks by Iranians. They mainly know what Iran has and has not.
Mine warfare Mine warfare and Mine warfare the key word,pandoras box is Mine warfare..ı am sure USA,israel dont know the mine stockpile of İran..average clearing mines of Usa ships is 1.20-1.40 a day and when you start clearing you will be target to İrans mobile coast anti-ship missiles..good luck..
US ASW sucks as well since the end of the Cold War they neglected and rely on weapons that are over 40 years old.
Its shallow water, they can use trawler nets:)
If they use cable woven nets.
Talking about saving cables :) Ypu pigion is nice.https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b179e42e7955f092381452036c1205ffc9f63ea534bac388359e26656e2454f9.jpg
you are laughing the British Navy did this to in second world war around their ports to dedect german submarines, they had even swimming nets around the ports to make it impossible for german submarins to sneak in and sink ships there, the advantage of the swimming nets was the destroyers had to patrol just on the gate entering as submarins could just enter there, they put a smaller ship there in the gate listening while the destroyers were patroling. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-submarine_warfare#/media/File:Anti-submarine_net_between_Fort_York_Redoubt_and_McNabs_Island.jpg
I am not talking about super cavitation torpedoes…..
“”” The video shows a Russian Kilo-class (Project 877EKM), one of three delivered to Iran between 1991 and 1996. Kilo-class submarines are designed to operate closer to shore than traditional, ocean-ranging submarines, and the submarines are operated by the Islamic Republic of Iran Navy (IRIAN) to cover the mouth of the Persian Gulf, Gulf of Oman, and even venture into the Indian Ocean. Iran’s submarine fleet is designed to give the country the ability to attack enemy shipping, including targets as large as American aircraft carriers.
Built at the United Admiralty Shipyard in St. Petersburg, Russia, the subs displace 2,325 tons surfaced, are 238 feet long, 32 feet high, and 19.6 feet wide. Each is equipped with six, 21-inch torpedo tubes capable of firing a variety of Soviet/Russian wire-guided, wake-homing, or acoustic-homing torpedoes. The submarines are also capable of laying sea mines.“””
haha..İran has only sup.cavitation torpedoes and YT-534-UW which is north korean derivative..
Ha ha ha that is why American carriers threaded lightly when close to N. Korean coast line. The article clearly says 877 class torpedoes have wire guided, wake homing and acoustic homing torpedoes. Where is your proof that Iranians have only the supercavitating torpedoes?
okey bro..forget it..xD
It doesn’t matter. israel’s dolphin won’t match the kilo’s torpedo.
thats matter …Kilo’s torpedo is enigma..
You mean Germany donated Dolphin. ANY SUB or Aircraft Carrier or ANY warship in Persian Gulf is Floating Target, They know it, the world knows it. The P@ssy Israelis only there because US Navy there to protect
yes german made Dolphin and ı am not talking about Persian gulf..just compared dolphin with iran kilo with its armaments but ı forgot that ı am in south-front..my bad..
Iran has the answer for Israeli submarines: https://twitter.com/peymaneh123/status/1341790498718007297

These are the people Iran wants to deal with: https://twitter.com/MaxCRoser/status/1343637858830192641
haha and you and your clowns do not know how to do math? how big is the tiny population of Israel??? You can not compare mice with elephants….lets see Germany is ca 12 times bigger than Israels population and Irans population is bigger than Germanys population….so people that are bad in math want to rule the world haha boy your stupidity hurts? if you would bring up a country that has a bigger population than Iran and would vaccinate its population faster you could open the mounth….funny that you let the Chinese, Japanese and South Koreans out of your diagramm, they would be much more effective than the dying rats of Europe and North America. But I forgive you your stupidity, instead of learning math and percentage correctly your are bussy to learn the 58 genders, the west living in its delusional narcissit bubble of superiority….when the US and EU are collapsed, will Israel beg China for money? Because the collaps and financial melt down is in full motion so it won’t take long as their fake economy of casino capitalism which is no productiv will blow just like 1929. Do you study already Chinese to beg for Money?

Thats babling nonsense. Israel has a part of a very big medical company there and therefore get first and alot.
Comparing with Germany or fx the seize of my shoes makes no sense.
I as not from Israel as well as most others dont let others out. Ypou say and even conclude about it and bæame us. Shame on You.
Whats wrong with åeople being a little proud for their pwn world companies after being hit very very hard by Corona out of hand.
Dirtbags like You should learn to congratualate people, which can make fx vaccines themself and for themself and copy that instead of hoping they make fiascos, so the can decline to Your low level.
Even Hesbollah use dollar.
Is that counting their non-citizen Arab prisoners?
Try putting Israel under Iranian sanctions for 5yrs and let’s see how good their social services are after that time frame.
I present reality, not hypothetical possibilities. After all, the mullahs from Iran understand the situation. They know they’re under sanctions. They also know that Israel is an advanced nuclear state. So why are they constantly giving belligerent and ridiculous statements?
It ain’t looking too good for the Khazars, is it?
Click on the image once to see the entire image.
You know Persian Gulf is only about 50 meters deep, means submarines useless
We see it well, You are the clever ones. We even has pictures: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c9b1f8accecfe7baf154c200bdb69798c3ccb3be84ebdc19cc34fe50551dabd6.jpg
So you think the technique of hunting submarines with fishnet will work for you. But the Israelis are smart, they will install huge scissors in the front of their submarines. Your deputy parliamentary speaker didn’t think of that, did he. Maybe you should try huge fishing rods instead.
Thats right. The American hangar ships are full of scissors. Here is the crew:) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/64d4dfecc613bc601b13612b1105b50416948657367c24b1c8fbd38df39c8889.jpg
It only means that Americans are even smarter than Israelis. They have prepared for the Iranians’ groundbreaking fishing net technology.
Danes might support them. We are producing a lot of very big nets and also has testing pools with streaming water for them.
They once made a 10 hektar one. I dont know for what. That must be more then one sub at the time.
It must have been for an aircraft carrier.
There is such a thing as ‘submarine nets’.
Are either of these two MEK alias’ real people? I know that Heshmat Alavi is fake, I bet Shafi is another fake.
I don’t think the deputy parliamentary speaker id MEK.
tbh they probably could lol.
China and iran are same assholes.They like to attack their enemies when they are offguard or weak.Both the chinese assholes and persian donkeys cant face a strong opponent.But thats why karma is there.Today 9 chinese were sent to hell in hunan province due to road accidents.
You d!rty H!ndu f*ck… go and rape some H!ndu bab!es and cows as well, I suppose. You’re as ignorant as you you are stupid. You f!lthy H!ndus live in urine and fæces, and you love it. Your sh!tty karma is something you stick up your arses, sh*t out, tthen eat up again because you’re as poor as muck. Same old sh!te being regurgitated from one news site to another… Good job we can’t smell the stench of H!ndu scum like you. We can see the the sh!te you write, but it gives us a laugh I think!
Hindu-stan is always “offguard or weak” – there is is no other condition available to hit them.
Of course, China is never “offguard or weak.” hence Hindustan will never catch them off-guard.
But, in my opinion, they (European Jews) have erred grievously in seeking to impose themselves on Palestine with the aid of America and Britain and now with the aid of naked terrorism. … Why should they depend upon American money or British arms for forcing themselves on an unwelcome land? Why should they resort to terrorism to make good their forcible landing in Palestine? July 14, 1946
JEWISH IDENTITY CAN’T DEPEND ON VIOLENCE
BY ARUN GANDHI
Posted on January 20, 2008 at the Washington Post.
Jewish identity in the past has been locked into the Holocaust experience – a German burden that the Jews have not been able to shed. It is a very good example of how a community can overplay a historic experience to the point that it begins to repulse friends. The Holocaust was the result of the warped mind of an individual who was able to influence his followers into doing something dreadful. But, it seems to me the Jews today not only want the Germans to feel guilty but the whole world must regret what happened to the Jews. The world did feel sorry for the episode but when an individual or a nation refuses to forgive and move on, the regret turns into anger.
The Jewish identity in the future appears bleak. Any nation that remains anchored to the past is unable to move ahead and, especially a nation that believes its survival can only be ensured by weapons and bombs. In Tel Aviv in 2004 I had the opportunity to speak to some Members of Parliament and Peace activists all of whom argued that the wall and the military build-up was necessary to protect the nation and the people. In other words, I asked, you believe that you can create a snake pit — with many deadly snakes in it — and expect to live in the pit secure and alive? “What do you mean”? they countered. Well, with your superior weapons and armaments and your attitude towards your neighbors would it not be right to say that you are creating a snake pit? How can anyone live peacefully in such an atmosphere? Would it not be better to befriend those who hate you? Can you not reach out and share your technological advancement with your neighbors and build a relationship?
Apparently, in the modern world, so determined to live by the bomb, this is an alien concept. You don’t befriend anyone, you dominate them. We have created a culture of violence (Israel and the Jews are the biggest players) and that Culture of Violence is eventually going to destroy humanity.
The “Holocau$t” has been thoroughly debunked.
That’s why you Jew supremacists are so determined to punish anyone who exposes your extortion racket.
are you happy that some Chinese died due accident, while you lose hundred of thousand ppl due to venereal diseases, accidents, dirty streets full of shit and etc…
Because driving in India is so safe. I have talked to more than a few Indians that drive in the U.S. but refuse to do so when they visit back home.
You are no Hindu, you work for # 77.
Iran can take out the israeli sub without major consequence. Hit first and ask questions later.
The US won’t risk a war for israel, they didn’t intervene in 2006, they won’t intervene now.
I say sink that sucker the moment it crosses Hormuz.
I hate stupid fights but I tend to agree. I don’t see a downside to Iran attacking the sub if they have anti-sub weapons. 1. It would show the U.S. that subs are not invincible, 2. it’s a stand alone military vessel with no escort, 3. Israel has already attacked Iran numerous times. Why wait for Israel to do a demo attack? Netanyahu is insane, the blood of those sailors is on his hands.
Come on Israel, start treating your neighbors w/some respect instead of dogs to be kicked.
I agree Israel deserves what it gets, but dogs do not deserve to be kicked. Please find another way of making your point.
They did in Iraq and Syria.
You moronic Muslims are inviting a nuclear attack from the equally intractable Jews.
Depraved Iranians who betrayed your own Arian and civilized Zoroastrian religion and culture,
THIS IS ISLAM as recorded in the holy book of Islam, the Qur’an:
Qur’an 22:19 “Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies.” Qur’an 3:28 “Muslims must not take the infidels as friends.” Qur’an 3:85 “Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable.” Qur’an 5:33 “Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam.” Qur’an 8:12 “Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Koran.” Qur’an 8:60 “Muslims must muster ALL weapons to terrorize the infidels.” Qur’an 8:65 “The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them.” Qur’an 9:5 “When opportunity arises, Kill the infidels wherever you catch them.” Qur’an 9:28 “The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque.” Qur’an 9:30 “The J-ws and the Christians are perverts; fight them.” Qur’an 9:123 “Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood.” Qur’an 47:4 “Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; Behead them when you catch them.”
Qur’an 3:54 “Allah is the greatest deceiver” – “Allahu khayru al-makireena”
Deuteronomy 7:2 the Lord will force them out of the land. Then you must destroy them without mercy. Don’t make any peace treaties with them. Joshua 11:19-20 The Lord had told Moses that he wanted the towns in this region destroyed and their people killed without mercy.
1 Samuel 15:3: “This is what the Lord Almighty says … ‘Now go and strike Amalek and devote to destruction all that they have. Do not spare them, but kill both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.’ “
We know that you Jews call the Armenians Amalekites and hate them. Khazar, Your abominable Jewish religion is as depraved as the Islam of the Arab. Kill each other at will.
Its so parheric funny reading this religius stuf being 1400 years old and even much more.
This is about simple sekular powerplay, where Your many old gods only give Your advices as You wish and find them Ypur self.
Nothing is about the future and not a single thing seemes to be about making peace or at least not more enemies.
Thats goes for the other writers. You are not alone.
Got it boss.
By the way, Take a peek above at my reply to the poster with the handle of “Helen4Yemen” and get back to me to tell me whether it reinforces your theory about all this being about nonsense that took place 1400 years ago — or not.
Christians and not Muslims murdered Jews.
You Jews (Bolsheviks) tortured and murdered at least 20 million Christian Slavs in Russia. Read Solzhenitsyn and learn about your abominable selves: “You must understand. The leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. The October Revolution was not what you call in America the ‘Russian Revolution.’ It was an invasion and conquest over the Russian people. More of my countrymen suffered horrific crimes at their bloodstained hands than any people or nation ever suffered in the entirety of human history. It cannot be understated. Bolshevism was the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant of this reality is proof that the global media itself is in the hands of the perpetrators.” ― Alexander Solzhenitsyn https://russia-insider.com/en/history/solzhenitsyns-forceful-condemnation-jewish-influence-russian-people/ri22600
You Jews also committed the genocide of the Christian Armenians in collaboration with the abominable Muslim Turk: http://themillenniumreport.com/2015/11/ultra-secret-conspiracy-in-the-middle-east-revealed-the-donmeh-the-wahhabi-and-zionisms-sephardic-jewry/
Armenian Genocide was NOT Ottoman Deed. It was done by Young Turk Revolutionaries Donmeh (secret jews) of the Ottoman empire. https://www.armenian-genocide.org/young_turks.html. Learn proper facts first, then spew your bullsh!t sore Armenian Loser
Most of you keep quoting the old testament. Christianity Is based,take a wild guess, on Christ. Now please find me a quote were Jesus called on the demise of others not for the defending of one’s self.
Jesus is anathema to the Jewish Torah/Old Testament. How many Christians understand this? Quite a few I believe.
CIA demands more propaganda from gypsy or her meth ration reduced
You are a FIRST CLASS ARMENIAN WANKER. YOU LIE and Deceive, You need a Turk massacre 2. Quran 3: 54 – And they devised, and God devised, and God is the best of devisers. DEVISER is NOT DECEIVER you PRICK.
LEARN ENGLISH FIRST , THEN insult Islam . SORE ARMENIAN LOSER. Got your Ass wacked by the TURK again.
Every one of those verses are contextualised and you quote them with no context Your HATRED of MUSLIMS Makes you stupid. Stop stealing Land of others – like fake Jews do. You LOST N-K, now get over it wanker

Ha ha. Maybe that Israelian sub is full of Palestinians hostages – You never know.
The IDF is using human shields??? Never! The IDF always tells us that it is the Arabs and Persians who are using human shields before they bomb civilian targets that are really ICBM factories hidden under school buses.

They “claim”…, Zion saying shit means shit by their claim millions of Iranian are dead and Iran troops in Syria and Iraq is over 10 millions. The whole deal is this….KSA: hey Zion want to come save us with US and to piss on Iran…you know you and we are useless shit failing apart unlike Iran and we support terrorists around the world…let fuk each other and get Bin laden to KSA.
Ofc American pigs are American stupid morons thinking of themselves as never ending rulers of world and don’t care about their face anymore. Just image supporting two must hated States in the world…which claim their are god followers and them only…fuk off. Both NEED and LIVE because of US…Zion bloodline is US taxpayer money and Saudis can’t hold their pants on the US have to do that.
Iran should sit tight, prepare for a fight but not fire the first shot. I know its frustrating when Israel gleefully shoots at your guys whenever they feel like it but if you shoot at their sub first that will kill going back to the JCPOA under Biden.
Netanyahu is more than willing to sacrifice a submarine crew to kill the JCPOA. Yes, he is that ruthless. He got the U.S. govt to drop a lawsuit against a Chinese bank that would have helped an American Jewish family just to get a deal with China. Netanyahu is evil. I don’t think the Israelis know what they are dealing with, they should but I think they want to believe otherwise.
This may just be some Israeli sabre rattling but the Iranian’s aren’t taking any chances, at least not in Syria they’re not. Iran’s been in a state of high alert for several weeks now and bringing in heaps of reinforcements, and curiously the area they’ve been most busily reinforcing is Deir ez Zor, which is well away from Israel and hard for Israel to reach. But it’s not hard for the US to reach, they’re right next door in northern Deir ez Zor and not too far away in neighboring Iraq, so I suspect the Iranians are at least equally concerned about the US. And I wonder if they have good reason to worry, the US has been reinforcing their region for the last few weeks too. Coincidentally the US are conducting a lot of anti Isis operations right near the river opposite to where the bulk of the Iranian forces in Deir ez Zor are stationed, mmm, coincidence.

Many of us Americans deeply resent how we’re being used by the Terrorist Theocracy of Eretz Yisrael, and its vile war criminals.
Someday enough of us will reach a tipping point and these (((parasites))) will be brought to justice — if (((they))) don’t succeed in starting WWIII first.
Iran is not our problem. The Talmud Thumpers are.
The Persian Gulf is mostly relatively shallow water – with limited deep shipping channels – this is not exactly ideal submarine territory – as it isn’t that hard to work out where they are likely to be!
