Swords Into Plowshares: Israel Missile Factory Producing Ventilators

by Touchpoint Israel

Top secret missile assembly line has already delivered its first 30 emergency ventilators to medical personnel

We might not yet have arrived at the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy (2:4), but we did perhaps catch a glimpse this week as Israel’s main missile factory began producing ventilators.

Like most other nations battling the coronavirus pandemic, Israel faces a shortage of available and operational ventilators to effectively treat those afflicted by the respiratory disease known as COVID-19.

A lot of innovative people have come up with a lot of innovative ideas to address the ventilator shortages. But few offered any kind of mass-producible solution.

Until now.

Israel’s Ministry of Defense announced that, in collaboration with the medical equipment firm Inovytec and the state-owned Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), it had produced and delivered the first 30 emergency ventilators to the Ministry of Health.

The ventilators were produced at a classified IAI factory that usually produces missiles for the Israel Air Force.

According to a statement released by the Ministry of Defense, this strategic sword had been beaten into a lifesaving plowshare (to use our own words) within a matter of days.

The statement continued:

“This development will enable the production of crucial ventilators for the lifesaving treatment of patients diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus. The State of Israel must develop independent capabilities in everything related to dealing with the COVID-19 virus pandemic. We cannot remain dependent on procurement from other countries. We must develop independent, advanced capabilities.”
