Curiously, the issue of missile identification has not caught the attention of observers. It was very quickly accepted that missiles of the Fateh- 313 type, a direct derivative of the Fateh-110, had been used against the el-Asad base. However, the assertion is worth discussing, especially when possible firing ranges are considered. On the other hand, while the use of Qiam-2s can be inferred from the study of the impacts, some experts have shed light on this missile’s potential use by analysing the booster debris. In this particular case, the combination of imagery analysis and weapon system expertise provides a high level of certainty with regard to the assessment of the missile used.
