Iran denies supplying Hamas with missiles
Sunday 18 November 2012
A senior Iranian politician has denied that his country had supplied Palestinian militants in Gaza with missiles capable of hitting Israel's commercial centre.
Hamas's armed wing said on Saturday it had launched an Iranian-made Fajr-5 rocket at Tel Aviv, about 43 miles north of Gaza, in the third rocket attack on the city since Wednesday. Israeli police said the rocket was intercepted mid-air by an Israeli anti-missile battery.
Iran has condemned Israel's offensive as "organised terrorism". But Alaeddin Boroujerdi, head of the national security and foreign policy committee in Tehran, said Israeli claims that Iran was supplying rockets were unfounded.
