Defense Ministry CEO: Speed Up Iron Dome Production


Director-General Udi Shani of the Defense Ministry visited the Elta factory in Ashdod to thank the workers there for their intense efforts, along with those of the employees of the Refael Weapons-Development Authority, Ampersat and the Research and Development Branch of the Defense Ministry for their successful production of the radar component of the Iron Dome anti-missile system.

Shani asked the various industrial groups to speed up production of additional units to the five Iron Dome batteries already in place, including the one that went into service on Shabbat, two months ahead of schedule.
