Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has officially announced that a new system designed to intercept medium-range missiles has become operational and Tel Aviv’s enemies have henceforth “put themselves in existential danger” if they try to attack Israel.
“I will reiterate, that whoever wants to strike us will be beaten, and those who threaten our existence are putting their own lives at risk,” Netanyahu said at the official ceremony on Sunday inaugurating the joint US-Israeli missile interceptor at the IDF’s Hatzor base. The event was attended by US defense officials, the Times of Israel reported.
