Following are excerpts from a TV report on the naming of a newborn infant in Gaza, which aired on Al-Manar TV on November 28, 2012.

Reporter: The Fajr missiles were the spearhead of the battle in which Gaza brought down the awe of Israel. The people here know the meaning of honor. They know that these moments of victory must linger beyond a slap to the barbaric face of Israel.

Hamoud, what’s his name? Fajr or Faraj?

This baby is called Fajr because it emerged from the battle that will bear a name of honor brought by this type of missile. In this humble abode, a new baby was born to the Shafe’i family in the first hours following the victory of the resistance in Gaza.

Father: We called him Fajr-3 after the missiles that pulverized the [Zionist] entity, bringing real pain upon it. These missiles played an active role in the decisive victory in Gaza.
