Barak: Iranian missile test further proof of need to deal with challenge

Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Wednesday night called Iran's announcement of a long-range missile test "further proof of the need to formulate ways to deal with the Iranian challenge." Speaking during a visit to IAF officials at the Kirya defense complex in Tel Aviv, Barak also referred to the ongoing IAF drill, which ends on Thursday, saying he was "impressed" by the exercise. "We have a strong air force which inspires confidence," he added.
