Chief of Staff Says Israel Can Produce All It Needs

Download PDF for this date

Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Rafael Eitan says that Israel can produce all its needs. He told the Industry and Commerce Club here at its weekly Friday meeting that Israel, despite its size, has unlimited potential in the military, industrial and security fields and is able to produce everything it needs to protect itself.

He said the only limiting factor was the economic one, and defense production over a period of time would come at the expense of consumer goods. The Chief of Staff was not prepared to answer political questions, including those involving the Golan Heights.

There will be no Bulletin dated January I due to New Year’s Day, a postal holiday.
