Israel Deploying Missile Defenses

In case of retaliation by Syria


Israel is deploying all of its missile defenses as a precaution against possible Syrian retaliatory attacks should Western powers carry out threatened strikes on Syria, Army Radio said on Wednesday.

It did not say how many interceptor batteries were mobilized by Israel's air defence corps. The missile defenses include the short-range Iron Dome, the mid-range Patriot and the long-range Arrow II.
