Germany to buy Israeli or US Missile Defence System

Germany is considering buying a missile defence system from Israel or the United States.

This is to defend against threats including Russian Iskander missiles in Kaliningrad, German weekly Welt is Sonntag reported on Sunday.

Germany’s Chief of Defence, Eberhard Zorn saying that the Iskander missiles can reach almost all of western Europe and there is no missile shield in place to protect against this threat.

Russia said in 2018 it had deployed Iskander missiles to its Kaliningrad exclave, a slice of Russia wedged between Poland and Lithuania.
