Israeli President Shimon Peres on Tuesday warned the world that Israeli’s technology, especially as reflected in the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) market, where Israel is a leader, allows the Jewish state to keep the extent of its military power under wraps.

Visiting the UAV program at the Palmachim Air Force Base, along with IDF Chief-of-Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz and GOC Air Force Maj.-Gen. Amir Eshel, President Peres said, “Not all of the IDF’s and the Air Force’s strength is open to view. Whoever derides us and seeks to harass us should take this into account.”

Peres said, “The Israeli Air Force is the best air force in the world; we have unique systems. The air force is equipped (with) the most advanced technology and – most importantly – with dedicated and qualitative human capital.”

IDF Chief-of-Staff Lt.-Gen. Gantz said, “Israel has good reason to be proud of its Air Force… The Air Force is the main system for deterrence, offensive and defensive action, and has fantastic technological abilities as may be required of such a qualitative body.”
