Rafael was honored to welcome a bipartisan delegation of members of U.S. Congress to its facility in northern Israel. This visit, facilitated by the American Israel Education Foundation (AIEF), underscores the enduring partnership between the United States and Israel and highlights Rafael’s commitment to advancing shared security goals.

The delegation toured RAFAEL’s state-of-the-art facility in the Galilee, where they received comprehensive briefings on Rafael’s cutting-edge laser-based defense systems and other defense systems like Iron Dome and David’s Sling. These systems are essential in defending Israel’s home front against the growing threats from Hamas, Hezbollah and other adversaries in the region. The members of Congress were also briefed on the various systems that have been developed to save American lives and safeguard American assets.

Rafael extends its gratitude to its American friends and allies for their steadfast commitment. Thanks to the bipartisan support of the U.S. Congress, Rafael continues to bolster the development, production, and technological sharing of Rafael’s defense systems. This visit reinforces our collective commitment to enhancing defense collaboration and technological innovation.
