Iran boasts of providing missile technology to Palestinian terrorists
By Jim Kouri

Only a mere few hours after a fragile ceasefire took effect between Israel and the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, Iran's top military commander, Gen. Mohammad-Ali Jafari, announced that the Iranian government is going to provide the Palestinian "resistance" with the technology necessary to mass produce Fajr-5 missiles, according to an Israeli counterterrorist who monitors the Iranian news organizations.

Gen. Jafari claimed that since Iran is prohibited from sending arms and military equipment due to Gaza being held under siege, Iran's Quds Force has provided the Palestinians with training in the manufacture of Fajr-5 missiles, the Israeli source informed the Law Enforcement Examiner

In fact, if the Iranian general is telling the truth, these missiles are already in the planning stages for manufacturing in relatively large numbers.

The Fajr-5 missile is much more powerful, accurate and destructive than the rockets used during Hamas' weeklong barrage of Israeli targets.

The Islamic republic extends technological aid and assistance to every Muslim nation or group that stands against "the arrogant powers" such as the Little Satan (Israel) and the Big Satan (United States).

On Wednesday, the Iranian Parliament's Speaker Ali Larijani said on Iranian television that the Quds Force — Iran's special forces — has provided military aid to the Palestinian "resistance groups" in the Gaza Strip. The Palestinians living under the rule of the Palestinian National Authority in the West Bank totally refrained from becoming involved in this latest conflict.

"We declare proudly that we have supported the Palestinian nation and Hamas and we have the honor to declare that we will stand beside the Palestinian people in the hardest and most difficult conditions," Larijani said during a rally staged by the Iranian parliamentarians in support of the Palestinians in Gaza and televised throughout the Middle East by semi-official Fars News Agency.

Hamas terrorists admitted their responsibility for the Fajr- 5 long-range missile attacks on Jerusalem and Tel Aviv in their ongoing terror war against Israel.

Hamas and the PIJ claimed responsibility for most of rockets, including long-range rockets, fired into Israeli territory. Other small organizations, such as the Popular Resistance Committees, Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade and networks affiliated with the global jihad also claimed responsibility for a number of rocket launchings.
