Iron Dome in Action
Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system has been essential in keeping Israelis safe from over the 1,000 rockets fired by Gazan terrorists at Israel during Operation Protective Edge. It has shot down over 200 missiles targeting population centers in just 8 days. Some rockets land in open areas and pose little threat, but many others hit cities and towns. It's these rockets that the Iron Dome system intercepts, calculating their trajectory and neutralizing them before they cause damage.
