The Defense Ministry announced last week that testing for a high-powered laser defense system was completed successfully.
The ‘Iron Beam’ defense system will intercept missiles, drones, mortars, and anti-tank rockets, according to the initial tests.
Defense Minister Benny Gantz called it a ‘game-changer” in the war on terror.
“We have successfully completed a series of tests on our new ‘Iron Beam’ laser air defense system,” Prime Minister Naftali Bennett stated.
“This may sound like science-fiction, but it’s real,” he enthused.
“This state-of-the-art laser system is capable of firing laser beams that intercept incoming UAVs, mortars, rockets and anti-tank missiles. It’s a game changer,” the prime minister explained, saying it’s “the world’s first energy-based weapons system that has proven to actually work.
“The Iron Beam’s interceptions are silent, they’re invisible and they only cost around $3.50.
“We are turning the tables on terror,” he said, lauding the Ministry of Defense and the defense industries on this “huge achievement.”
