Last week, Israel hosted a three-day, closed-door conference attended by eight top NATO air defense commanders and senior staff, said Israel Air Force Brig. Gen. Shachar Shohat, commander of Israel’s air defense forces.
Countries represented included Canada, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, the UK and the U.S.
They were briefed on Israel’s air defense activities in last summer’s Gaza war, when Iron Dome anti-rocket batteries had an interception rate of nearly 90%.
“Our achievements in Operation Protective Edge sparked keen interest around the world, and people wanted to come here to hear our experiences and exchange data at the professional level,” Shohat said.
