    Well, as the IDF has not used the IMI-built FN FAL variants since 1973, i would say this is just a publicity stunt.
    The 7.62mm DMR rifles currently used by IDF are Galil-based.

      Aurelien, yes, exactly what the IDF said :)

    I guess it’s comforting that Hezbollah is apparently unable to procure more modern firearms.

    The fact that they spent so much effort on the presentation case speaks volumes.

  • SpudGun

    Why do insane dictators always get the cool stuff, all I ever get for Christmas is socks. :(

    The wooden furniture on the FAL is also another dead giveaway over it’s alleged relevence.

    Great, he’ll probably sell it on eBay to get extra money for a new centrifuge and U238.

    Or maybe a few more Members Only jackets.

  • John C.

    well at least he doesn’t have to use that crappy new bullpup that the Iranians have. Can’t remember the name…Something with a K possibly?

  • Matt

    Awww look! It’s pointing right at him!

    If only we could have gotten a real Accidental discharge for once.

    Actually that rifle was the very one that the Ariel Sharon used in his duty, Hezbollah stole it from his mum, in a operation called ‘Steal the gun from mum’. Now Ahmadinejad get’s to gloat and look at himself in the mirror wearing only shorts.

    In the 80′, Israel sold a large quantity of FAL rifles to the Christian militia of Bashir Gemayel.
    These weapons were mostly in poor condition. This FAL is probably a memorabilia of the civil war.
    There are also many uzi submachine guns, Galils and M4′s on the Lebanon black market.

  • bigbang

    So Nasrallah lied to Ahmadinejad!

    Maybe this will be the end of Hezbollah!!!!
