Iran’s Badr 3 missile debuts against Israel in Palestinian rocket offensive

The Iranian Badr 3 missile explodes within 20m of target and releases a 1,400-piece shower of shrapnel fragments. On Monday, April 6, hours into the Gaza ceasefire, Palestinian and Iranian sources released a video showcasing the new Iranian weapon targeting Ashkelon, 13 km north of Gaza. At least four of the new Iranian missiles were shown on May 4 and 5 during the 700-rocket blitz on the Israeli population from Saturday morning. The Badr 3 was said by Iranian sources to have been supplied, possibly with technology and components, to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hamas’ partner in the latest round of rocket attacks. While earlier versions of the rocket carried 40 kilos of explosives, the Badr 3 has an explosive warhead of 250 kilos.

The new weapon made its Middle East battlefield debut in Yamen in early April in the hands of the Iranian-backed Houthi insurgents. Jihad in Gaza was therefore the first terrorist organization to use it against Israel.

DEBKAfile’s military sources disclose that the Badr 3 has a range of 150km. Its greatest asset is that it explodes 20 meters above the target before landing, showering 1,400 pieces of shrapnel across a wide area. This feature greatly enhances its capacity to harm multiple human targets and wreak damage to buildings over a wide radius. Due to this capacity, many people in Ashkelon and Ashdod were injured after hearing the rocket alerts before they were able to reach safe shelter. Four people were killed and more than 250 Israelis were injured – many from flying shrapnel and many buildings took direct hits.

Both terrorist groups, Hamas and Jihad, bragged on Monday that they had found a way to beat Israel’s Iron Dome defense batteries by releasing concentrated barrages of scores of rockets in a single launch. Our sources report that in the latest round of rocket aggression from Gaza, Iron Dome scored 70 percent hits in the interception of incoming rockets, down from 80 percent in previous rounds. However, these figures are provisional estimates and deeper analysis is needed for true results.

      You ask: “how does the world feel sorrow for the palestinian’s?”

      Easy.

      The world has sympathy for people living under siege in the world’s largest ever concentration camp. That sympathy generally increases in proportion to the number of dead defenseless civilians the squatters take out because they’re to cowardly to set one square inch into Gaza.

    On the Arabian Gulf Coast there was a Pet Store that once had many Parrots from all over the Middle East, Yemen, Gaza, Lebanon. Along with One Shiia Parrot in Particular from Iran.
    Each Morning this Iranian Shiia Parrot still Living in the 7th Century kept Yelling Every Early Morning like a Rooster Crying Out to all the other Parrots, “Today Is The Day The World Shall End, As Shiia Caliphate Verses Of The Quran Has Foretold” All the other Hizbollah, Hamas and Houthis Parrots would join in, Death to Israel, Death to Arabia, Death to America Great Satan ,all Cried Out Too since they were Fed Together on Cue just to Get Food as Trained.

    And, uh, One Day Pet Store Owners from Arabia, Israel, and America, as well as all over the Arabian Gulf Owners all Shot the Iranian Parrot for the Sake Harmony with Peace and Quiet!
    Thus fulfilling, for this Silly Parrot Bird at least, His Own Prophecy according to the Iranian Parrot Shiia Scriptures!

    After the other Parrot’s Puppets of Hamas, Hizbollah, and Houthis All Flew Away Crying The Sunnis Arabian Gulf Prophecy has been Fulfilled Inshallah by Mohamed the Blessed Messenger from Medina and Mecca, but not from Tehran since it was No Longer There, just like the Holy Quran’s Prophecy said in 632 AD?

    If the Palestinians are the so called Terrorists and wish to kill people indiscriminately, then why aren’t they sending rockets now since there is a Truce? Its because they have successfully stalemated the Israeli’s immoral behavior of kill, kill, kill Palestinian children with impunity. Treat those you hate like you would like to be treated, in peace and justice, and everyone can live and share the Land. But the Israelis are too Stupid, Greedy, and Racist to adopt such a policy. They forget that they are the ones who illegally immigrated (with the help of foreign power, the UK) to the land, and that the Palestinians were living there for centuries before them, while there forefathers were basking in the sun in Europe. Now that they got a foothold, they want to Kill out all the Palestinians, and Grab all of Historic Palestine for themselves.

It is Hamas and Islamic holy jiihad sitting in the front seat now. When Hamas says jump, Israel jumps, and when Hamas stops, Israel stops. Hamas is the head while Israel is the tail.

    The bigger/biggest game is that the new lack of waivers for Iranian crude oil is likely to be hitting Iran very hard. This has to mean a lot of behind-the-scenes maneuvering by bigger and smaller powers in the region and around the world.

    Forces have been moved around a bit in response and you are getting changes in internal power structures as well.

    These events are global in their indirect reach. What Iran is feeling is affecting not simply the Middle East but Asia and other areas.

    We simply do not know how the secretive negotiations, agreements, force movements, etc. are sorting out.

    But the key malefactor is not in the Gaza Strip, Lebanon, or Syria. It’s in Qoms/Tehran where ownership of Hamas, Hizbollah, and others actually resides.

    In the long term it is more important to arrange for a loss of power for the mullahs in Iran than to destroy Gazan infrastructure.

    Seriously, Iran commanded Hamas to carry out the rocket attacks and you can bet it was because that would fit into other plans they have/had afoot.

    Israel has several hundred nuclear weapons, mostly less than 1 mt. Thirty of these could be spared to hit Iran’s major cities. Casualties would be in the millions and Iran would be knocked out for decades to come. The Gaza strip could be conquered in a few hours. This would have the net effect of securing Israel’s security for the foreseeable future. Iran is an evil pariah state that lives to hurt other humans. This needs to be stopped permanently.
