Netanyahu says Israel developing secret weapon

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is hinting cryptically at a weapons system developed by Israel that no other country has, during a visit to state-owned defense contractor Israel Aerospace Industries.

“They are developing here missiles that can get to anywhere in the [fighting] arena, and to any target. That’s the offensive strength of the State of Israel which is key to us in any area. They are developing here weapons systems with special abilities that no other country has,” he says, according to a statement from his office.

“IAI knows how to get anywhere it decides and anywhere we need for the good of the country,” he says. “The sky is not the limit.”

The premier does not explain his comments, which come a day after he said Israel infiltrates Iran periodically for intelligence purposes.
