July 28, 2012 10:02

Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Saturday that a recently announced US aid package aimed at bolstering the Iron Dome short-range missile defense system was further proof of the Obama administration's support for Israel.

"This new law, which will add $70 million to the Iron Dome project, is yet another expression of consistent support by the Obama administration, and indeed by the US Congress, for the security of the state of Israel," Barak said. "We acknowledge and appreciate them for this support."
