(Worthy News) - The Israel Air Force is "highly disturbed" by the drastic rise in the threat of ballistic missiles to Israel, and the ongoing Middle Eastern arms race, a senior air force official said on Sunday.

Speaking at a conference in Tel Aviv organized by the Fisher Institute for air and Space Strategic Studies, and Israel Defense magazine, Brig.-Gen. Tal Kelman, Chief of Staff in the Israel Air Force (IAF), provided a glimpse into the central challenges engaging air force command.

Kelman issued a warning about the "very significant rise in the ballistic threat" to Israel," citing a rise in the accuracy and quality of missiles held by adversaries in the region. "This greatly disturbs us. There is a solution that has been under development in recent years," he said, referring to the "integrative, multi-layer" rocket and missile defense systems that includes Iron Dome, David's Sling, and the Arrow programs.
