Principal Deputy to Assistant Secretary to the Acquisition, Logistics and Technology (ASAALT) of the U.S. Department of Defense, Ms. Heidi Shyu visited an Iron Dome battery in Ashkelon, Israel, last week.

 

During the visit, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Air Defense commanders presented the system and the combat soldiers operating it.

 

"Cooperation will continue," Shyu said. "The financial difficulties won't stop us."

 

Cpt. Elad Tzinamon, Commander of the Battery and Major Lior Bengels, Deputy Commander of the Israel Air Defense Network, presented the Iron Dome system. They elaborated on its construction and its successful interceptions during the recent missile attacks by Gaza Strip terrorists at southern Israeli communities.

 

Later that day, Shyu also visited the Command and Control Center where she was briefed on conclusions drawn from the August attacks and changes to be implemented.
