TEL AVIV (BNS): The third Arrow ballistic missile defence battery of Israel Air Force will soon become operational to join the aerial defence "umbrella” provided by the IAF's Cherev Magen (“Defencive Sword”) unit,  a media report said.

According to the Israel Defence Forces' journal Bamachaneh, the ground-to-air system would be fielded in the near future at an unidentified location in the nation's center.

The chosen location will give best defence against long-range threats coming from multiple directions.

The battery would be equipped with new interceptors that provide increased accuracy than older weapons.

The third battery will also be equipped with Oren Adir radar, which is said to have a greater detection range than previous systems and increased capabilities for determining the kind of missile that might be heading toward Israel.

The Israeli Air Force is raising activity levels against the threat of long-range missiles.
