In an ongoing effort to boost its missile defenses, Israel has recently been testing its David’s Sling anti-ballistic missile system. The latest test coincided with positive developments in Iran nuclear talks currently just meters from the finishing line.
A number of recent David’s Sling missile tests – the most recent one this Tuesday – have been a great success, the Homa Directorate at the Defense Ministry and the American Missile Defense Agency (MDA) announced Wednesday.
“This is a unique weapons system: the interceptor is small and agile,” Homa Directorate chief Yair Ramati said. “The system should be introduced to the Israeli Air Force (IAF) by next year.”
