Israel Accelerating Development of Arrow 3


Colonel Aviram Hasson, who heads the Shikhva Gevohah (high level) defense-system department in the Homa (wall) administration of the Defense Ministry said, Monday, that Israel is accelerating development of the Arrow 3 anti-missile defense.

Speaking at a gathering at the Institute for National Security Studies, Hasson explained that Israel is thinking primarily about the nuclear threat. He said the Arrow 3 can operate above countries that do not border Israel, such as Iran, adding, "The advantage is expanding the response area to the breadth of space threats."
