    Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Warns: 1000 Rockets Threaten Israel
    16:54 Jul 19, '05 / 12 Tammuz 5765


    (IsraelNN.com) Egypt, Iran and especially Syria have developed an organized system of rockets that is capable of reaching every corner of Israel. This was revealed in the special meeting of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee about the rocket threat in the Middle East.

    According to information from Oz Rubin, former head of the Arrow Rocket Commission in the Security Office, the total ballistic weight that these rockets can carry is five hundred tons. He claims that Syria and Egypt are playing down their rocket system while Iran is publicizing its abilities in the field.

    Dr Yuval Steinitz, the head of the committee, warned to be careful of intellectual fixation in the security system, “ which continues to give tactical attack by planes complete preference over options of exact tactical rockets.”
