Iran Loses Another Satellite, Continues Threatening Israel
Reports emerged Thursday morning that an attempt by Iran’s space agency to launch a satellite into orbit around the earth failed, with the rocket carrying the satellite likely exploding on the launch pad at the Imam Khomeini Space Center in Iran's Semnan province. Meanwhile, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah continued making threats against Israel in a speech on Wednesday which was filmed at an undisclosed location and broadcast on Hezbollah’s TV station. During the speech, he said, among other things, that he was “a friend of Iran and I'm willing to bring the Lebanese Army air defense systems from Iran to confront Israel…whatever the Lebanese Army needs to become the strongest regional army, I am willing to go to Iran and bring it.”

“Why does America oppose Iran? Because Iran...supports Palestine. Even if the entire world gives up on Palestine, Iran will never give up on Palestine or its holy sites,” he added. “If America launches war on Iran, it will not be alone in the confrontation at all. The resistance axis is stronger than ever and the U.S. will further withdraw from the region and Israel is heading towards more fear and panic.”

Amidst sharp rhetoric by Iranian and Hezbollah officials the IDF has increased its readiness and issued frequent statements to reassure the Israeli public it is ready to defend the Jewish State against any threat.
