They have more than the Iron Dome: Anand Mahindra praises Israel over tackling Iran attack

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 17 Apr 2024, 05:03 pm

Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra recently praised Israel for the way it tackled the recent missile and drone attack by Iran.

"They have more than the Iron Dome. They have a longer-distance interception system called David’s Sling. And they also have Arrow 2 and 3 systems," Mahindra posted on X.

"In the works is also the Iron Beam, which will use lasers. Today, possessing ironclad defence interception systems is as important as a cache of offensive weaponry," he said.

He urged India to develop a similar air defence system.

Israel Defence Forces Chief of Staff gives a strong message

Amid escalating tension in the Middle East, Israel Defence Forces Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Herzi Halevi has warned that Iran's attack on his country will be 'met with a response'.

He made the remarks while visiting Nevatim Airbase in Israel where four Iranian ballistic missiles hit on Saturday (April 13, 2024).

Iran wanted to harm the strategic capabilities of the State of Israel — that is something that had not happened before. We were prepared for the ‘Iron Shield’ operation — preparation that brought Iran to also encounter aerial superiority,” he was quoted as saying by The Times of Israel.

“We are looking ahead, we are considering our steps, and this launch of so many missiles, cruise missiles, and UAVs into the territory of the State of Israel will be met with a response,” he added.
