Amos Gilad, the head of the Defense Ministry’s diplomatic-security branch, told a town hall meeting in Beersheba on Saturday that the Russian-made surface-to-air S-300 missiles procured by Iran pose a “challenge” to Israel, though one that could be overcome.

Gilad said that the weapon is not a defensive one, as the Russian government has claimed, but that Israel is capable of finding ways to neutralize the threat.

Gilad’s comments were reported on the website of the state-run Israel Radio.
