The Iron Dome defense system provides a complete solution to all missile threats to Israel from Lebanon and the Gaza Strip, Yossi Drucker, director of Rafael's Iron Dome project, told Israel Radio on Tuesday.

Drucker also said that Iron Dome had exceeded the defense establishment's original expectations for the anti-missile system.

The first two Iron Dome batteries are expected to enter active service within the next four months.
