Israel inks deal for precision rockets that can reach ‘anywhere in the region’

The Defense Ministry announces it has purchased a vast network of surface-to-surface precision missiles capable of reaching any target in the region.

The deal inked with Israel Military Industries is worth several hundred million shekels, and will supply the IDF with rockets that can hit targets between 30 and 150 kilometers away (18 to 93 miles), according to a ministry statement.

Spokeswomen for both the Defense Ministry and IMI declined to disclose the exact price of the rocket system or further details of the rockets’ capabilities.

“We are acquiring and developing precision fire systems that will enable the IDF… within a few years to cover anywhere in the region,” Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman says.
