Israel air defense system vulnerable to massive attacks

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The National Interest looked into an article about the IDB’s inability to intercept missiles, including the inefficiency of the Iron Dome during the war in Gaza in 2014.

“In addition to technical problems, the Israeli missile defense system also suffers from operational limitations,” wrote The National Interest .

“As the enemies of Israel have realized over the past decade, the regime’s most powerful missile defense system is unable to cope with massive attacks,” the paper added.

“During the war in Gaza in 2014, the Iron Dome was to intercept the 690 short-range missiles fired simultaneously. Israeli intelligence is dreading a thousand rockets fired per day in an upcoming attack that would make the Iron Dome even more vulnerable, “said The National Interest .

The other problem is that the use of Tamir missiles is less expensive especially in the face of massive missile fire. The firing of each Tamir missile costs $ 150,000, a cost higher than the price of the cheap missile it must intercept.

The Iron Dome is part of a missile defense system, deployed in occupied Palestine. This system has cost the Zionist regime billions of dollars.

“Israel would do better to opt for another weapon, including laser defense systems, although these systems have not yet been operational and have not been tested on the battlefield,” according to The National Interest.
