IAI’s Chairman, Amir Peretz said, “Cooperation with Germany is courageous and important, both security-wise and no less politically, and IAI is proud to be part of the strong bond of this relationship. Precisely at this time, and in particular following the events of April 14, in which IAI demonstrated its ability to protect Israel’s citizens against a massive missile attack launched against it, the world has learned that we can provide the maximum protection against the severest of threats, and the citizens of Israel have good reason to be proud. We continue to do everything possible and beyond that to maintain Israel’s security, and that of our friends around the world.”
