Raphael - Israel's Armament Development Authority - was chosen Thursday by Defense Minister Amir Peretz to supply a short-range missile interceptor system, dubbed "Iron Dome," to defend against Kassam rockets.
Peretz was expected to ask the Knesset for additional funds for the project, estimated to be valued at $300 million.
A committee set up by Peretz to choose the short-range rocket defense system is scheduled to present its recommendation to the cabinet on Sunday.
