We have long told you about the planned U.S.-Israeli cooperation on the David's Sling defense system. Now today, JNS reports that Israel has received its first delivery of this system that will protect the Israeli people from terrorist rocket attacks:
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has started receiving the first deliveries of the new American-Israeli-developed David’s Sling missile defense system.
According to the IDF, the delivery process will take place gradually in a number of stages during the next few weeks. The Israeli Air Force will also test the performance of all the system’s components.
“David’s Sling will allow Israel to more effectively defend against the wide range of current and future threats to its civilians. It will provide an additional layer of protection against short- and medium-range missiles and rockets, particularly against precision strikes,” the IDF said in a statement.
