(Worthy News) – As the Hezbollah and Hamas terror groups step up their aerial aggression against Israel, using drones and other UAVs in attack and surveillance attempts against the Jewish State, the IDF is expanding its use of the so-called “Sling” system on its borders.

Also called “Ground Spear”, the system is a 120 mm anti-missile mortar launcher that can be rapidly deployed and stored and transported via military Jeeps and other ground vehicles. Once activated, the Sling can swiftly neutralize aerial threats.

With a range of seven to 10 kilometers (about four to six miles), the system can be operated by a team of either two or four soldiers. The Sling can fire up to 16 mortars per minute, and is guided by both the team physically on the ground and an automated, smart system that helps with leveling and elevation.
