Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Binyamin Netanyahu visited Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) on Monday and heard reviews from IAI Chairman Harel Locker and IAI President Nimrod Shefer.

The two, together with other senior officials, presented the prime minister with plans for the strengthening of the industry and the manner in which these plans could be beneficial to the national security of the State of Israel.

During the visit, Netanyahu toured the site and was presented with the technological means and capabilities currently in development at IAI.

Prime Minister Netanyahu said during the tour: "There is a whole bunch of talented and talented people here who are developing the tip of the defense of the State of Israel, from a mini-satellite launched into space to missiles that only a few of them can see behind me. They are developing here offensive missiles that can reach anywhere in the region and for any purpose, and this is the offensive force of the State of Israel, which is important to us in all arenas. We are developing weapons systems with special capabilities that no other country has."

In response to a question about the aircraft deal with Croatia, which has been put on hold at the behest of the US, Netanyahu replied: "This is going on between the two countries, I was personally involved in it, it's too early to say clear things about it at the moment."

Netanyahu asked about the meeting he held today with bereaved families and replied, "Today I met with the Hajabi family after I promised his widow Natalie to meet us at the time of the shiva, and she brought her two children, one of whom was Guy, seven years old. Came to my office with my family and after a tour they took out the board and started playing against this talented child. "

"After forty minutes we were in his bag, we did not finish because I had to get here.
I meet with every family and I will also meet Kim's family, "he added.

IAI Chairman Harel Locker told Netanyahu, "You have heard and seen some of our capabilities here, and this is the realization of Jewish genius in full force." The IAI knows how to reach the people of Israel wherever you decide and wherever we want,
