The head of the Defense Ministry's Missile Defense Organization, which oversaw the development of all of Israel's missile and rocket defense shields, is leaving his post after classified information was found on his personal computer.

The dramatic development occurred after Yair Ramati served as head of the MDO, known in Hebrew as the Homa Administration, for four years, managing and developing the Iron Dome, David's Sling, Arrow 2, and Arrow 3 groundbreaking air defense systems.

Ramati also oversaw a series of successful trials of interception systems in recent years, in what the Defense Ministry described as "unusual achievements, on a world scale, for the active, multi-layered missile defenses."
