Gen. Amikam Norkin on Wednesday said, "The security challenge is becoming more complex. In addition to the missiles and rockets, there are also attack drones and cruise missiles now."
Norkin, speaking at a graduation ceremony for officers of the Israeli Air Defense Command, added: "I stand here before you all, well aware of the importance of the Air Defense Command to me as air force commander, and that its daily contributions are steadily becoming a significant component of any mission and operation."
The air force chief continued: "As we speak, Arrow, Patriot, David's Sling, and Iron Dome batteries are ready for battle. I know that in the near future I will be meeting you at your posts, defending the people and the country, having joined the team of air force commanders. [ Source: Israel Hayom (Read More...) ]
