Israeli airliners to get missile defenses

Israel will equip commercial airliners with missile repellent devices in the coming weeks.

Plans for the system were launched in 2002 after missiles launched by Al-Qaida terrorists in Kenya barely missed an airliner. The devices, which fire flares that interfere with missiles’ heat detection devices, should be installed within weeks, Ha’aretz reported.
