Israel’s multi-tier air defense missile system will be fully operational early next month with the deployment of the David’s Sling interceptor, a senior Israeli air force officer said on Monday.
David’s Sling, designed to shoot down rockets fired from 100 to 200km away, will be the final piece of a shield that already includes short-range Iron Dome and long-range Arrow-2 and Arrow-3 missiles.
“In the next two weeks we will declare operational the David’s Sling and at that time we will have completed our multi-tier [defense capability],” said the officer.
“I’m sure that together with the Iron Dome and the Arrow-2 and Arrow-3 it will enhance our ability to deal with threats,” he added.
