Sneh: Israel checking anti-rocket systems

Deputy Defense Minister Ephraim Sneh announced Tuesday that Israel would decide within weeks what anti-rocket defense system would be put in place in Israel's Gaza periphery. Sneh said that the government was examining four different systems produced in Israel and abroad, but that their efficiency was as yet unproven. On Sunday, Defense Minister Amir Peretz ordered the government to examine the possibility of an advanced defense system against Kassam rockets.
