Retired Brigadier General Reem Aminoach, former economic advisor to the Chief of the General Staff, stated in an interview with Ynet that the repelling of the Iranian attack on the night of April 14 cost Israeli taxpayers between 4-5 billion shekels.

During the conversation, Aminoach emphasized that this figure only reflects the cost of military activities without assessing potential damage. The general stated that the Iranian strike on Israel accounted for less than 10% of Israeli defense spending.

Aminoach revealed that one launch of the Iron Dome missile defense system costs $3.5 million, while a launch of the David's Sling missile costs a billion dollars. He called for an increase in military spending to maintain readiness of the Israeli missile defense system among other defense capabilities.
