IAF: Missile Defense Effective

Ad Feedback

CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - Israel Air Force (IAF) Brigadier General Daniel Milo said Israel has a dependable ballistic missile defense system in place.

"We are [living] in a period during which the enemy is accelerating the ballistic missile threat in all the various fronts," the IAF Air Defense Forces commander said.

But despite Iranian propaganda, Milo said the Islamic Republic's missiles tests last month did not reflect any "technological breakthroughs."

Iran's state-run Fars News Agency Web site stated that an advanced guidance system had been installed on the Shihab-3 missile, which improved its accuracy and allowed its course to be altered in flight.

"We have good answers to the threats and scenarios that we foresee in the region with regard to ballistic missiles," Milo said, referring to Israel's Patriot and Arrow missile defense systems.

On Tuesday, the IAF simulated the Israeli-developed Arrow system's response to simultaneous missile attacks from Syria and Iran.

"There is no such thing as a 100 percent solution," the general said, "but the way we provide an answer today to ballistic missiles is improving all the time."
