Israel will face a "rain" of rockets and missiles in a future war, former head of the Israeli Air Force Defense Division Brig.-Gen. (ret.) Ilan Biton said Tuesday.
Biton, who served as commander of the division until 2006, said during a conference in Herziliya that the next war would be an experience that the "people of Israel have yet to undergo."
Another former commander, Brig.-Gen. (ret.) Yair Dori, called on the Defense Ministry to deploy rapid fire Phalanx cannons outside the Gaza Strip to protect Israeli towns until the Iron Dome defense system, currently under development by Rafael, was operational.
