(Times of Israel / Worthy News)-- The head of Israel's most powerful intelligence agency depicted Wednesday a changing battlefield in which offensive cyber capabilities will, in the near future, represent the greatest shift in combat doctrine in over 1,000 years. For now, though, he said, the 170,000 rockets and missiles pointed by enemy states at Israel represented the most pressing threat, a danger he placed even above Iran’s rogue nuclear program.

He listed four central challenges. The first, notably listed ahead of Iran’s nuclear program, are rockets, he said. Kochavi asserted that Israel faces 170,000 rockets and missiles, and that, "for the first time in many decades, the enemy has the ability to drop considerable amounts of munitions on the cities of Israel." In the past the threat was countered by the IAF, he said; today it is Israel's enemies' primary weapon and it represents an enormous intelligence challenge to counter.
