The first test to check the situational effectiveness of Israel’s missile defence systems has been conducted by the country’s air force.

Code-named Tiramisu, the test was a computerised trial run to test the joint operation of anti-missile defence systems.

The test was conducted at a special laboratory to verify Israel’s missile defence systems against missiles launched from the Gaza Strip and other enemy countries.

The trial run results will enable the air force to decide on whether or not to a build a joint command centre.

Air force defence industry head Lt Col Avi Cohen said that after feeding all the data of the different systems into the computer, different scenarios of missile attacks were considered and the correct responses examined.
