US-Israeli missile interceptor becomes operational against Hezbollah militants

WEB DESK

A joint US-Israeli missile interceptor meant to counter the type of medium-range missiles possessed by Iranian-backed Hezbollah militants became operational today.

It completed Israel’s multi-layer defense system amid tensions on its frontiers with Syria and Gaza.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at the unveiling ceremony for the David’s Sling system that defending the home front is of the utmost importance. He went on to warn “whoever tries to strike us will be hit, those that threaten our existence put themselves in existential danger.”

David Sling’s marks the completion of Israel’s multi-tier system that includes the Arrow, designed to intercept long-range ballistic missiles in the stratosphere with an eye on Iran, and Iron Dome, which defends against short-range rockets from the Gaza Strip.

David’s Sling was developed by Israeli defense firm Rafael with American defense giant Raytheon.

The system became operational Sunday amid heightened tensions along Israel’s northern borders with Lebanon and Syria.
