Israel Calls Up Missile Reservists

Sunday, 03 May 2009 10:46 PM

Israel has called up its air force reservists to sharpen their skills on Arrow and Patriot anti-missile systems in case of a conflict with Iran, The Jerusalem Post reported Sunday.

The fear is that any conflict with the Islamic fundamentalist state would result in missiles being shot into Israel, which has weathered missile attacks from Iraq, Hezbollah and Hamas over the last two decades.

The reservists are spending one day a week on duty to sharpen their skills. The decision to call up operators of the Arrow and Patriot systems was made last year by head of the IAF's Air Defense Division Brig.-Gen. Daniel Milo.
