US Deploys THAAD Missile Defense System to Israel For The First Time

The US military has delivered THAAD missile defense systems to Israel for the very first time. The deployment comes as a part of a joint exercise and is aimed to show the US’ “continued commitment” to Israel’s “regional security.” The advanced systems were deployed to Israel in early March, US and Israeli military officials revealed on Monday. The THAADs – Terminal High Altitude Area Defense systems – will be stationed in the country’s south, alongside some 200 US military personnel.
