TEL AVIV — Israel’s ballistic missile defense concept has been criticized by a leading scientist.
Nathan Faber, a leading scientist at Israel’s Technion, has warned that the nation’s missile tier network was flawed and could not withstand a sustained war. Faber said the tiered-defense concept was insufficient to counter the more than 200,000 missiles and rockets aimed at the Jewish state.
“Today, Israel is not protected from ballistic missiles and this protection’s efficiency in the future is also in doubt,” Faber said.
In an analysis for the Homefront Shield Foundation, Faber, today a consultant, said Israel would require up to 1,000 interceptors to stop an attack of 400 enemy ballistic missiles.
