BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – The Israeli army announced that it has signed a cooperation agreement with the U.S. regarding joint air defense projects.

“After a hypothetical meeting, the Israeli Air Force and the U.S. Air Force signed a document specifying the interoperability between the American THAAD missile and the Israeli Iron Dome in the event of an emergency in Israel.”

The American High Altitude Defense (THAAD) and the Israeli Iron Dome are both anti-ballistic missile defense systems, designed to intercept and shoot down short, medium and long-range air targets.

The Israeli army also praised the long-term cooperation between Israel and the United States.

On Thursday, the Israeli Ministry of Defense hosted the annual U.S.-Israeli Defense Policy Consultative Group.

The Political Development Working Group session discussed strategic and regional security challenges in the wake of the recent escalation between Israel and Hezbollah along the Lebanese border.

Israel accused Hezbollah recently of attempting a “sabotage operation” inside the occupied Sheba’a Farms region; however, this was denied by the Lebanese group.

The funniest is that Israeli Arrow-3 is MUCH better than THAAD, it’s even better than RIM-161D block.IIA, S-500, A-135 and A-235 : 2400km range discriminates decoys from MIRV warheads and highly manoeuvrable when exo-atmospheric, moreover, interceptors have the same price as Patriot’s PAC-3 MSE… IDK how the Israelis do but they’re as cheap as the Chinese with a quality half way between USA and EU, although EU has a lesser range of products, but all have the best % of kill on market.

Or, maybe you Israeli fanboy simply don’t know what you’re talking about from the confines of your armchair, and the IDF top brass are more privy about the specs hence also limits of their own hardware.
