A senior official tells Army Radio that Israel could face a funding crunch to replenish the Iron Dome interceptor rockets.

Hundreds of interceptors were fired in recent days to defend Israeli towns and cities against the more than 1,000 rockets fired by Islamic Jihad.

“Without a budget law, there is no doubt there will be problems in the future with production and acquisition of Iron Dome interceptors,” the senior official says.

“There will be limitations we will have to deal with,” he says.
