The Security Cabinet on Wednesday approved a program for the protection of civilian aircraft against missile attacks. The development of the new defense system will begin at the start of 2008. The system will also significantly reduce the risk of infiltration into Israeli airspace by hijacked or unidentified aircraft. The cabinet also approved a proposal of the transportation minister to allocate a budget for the fortification of planes this year using existing technology.
