The Iron Dome battery was moved to the Sharon region north of Tel Aviv for the first time, and is in position to protect Netanya, Hadera and other central Israel cities, according to the IDF.
Military spokesmen said that the battery is being deployed as part of the regular operational process, and is the sixth operational Iron Dome battery.
Metropolitan Tel Aviv is believed to be within range of missiles fired by Hezbollah from Lebanon, and at least one missile fired from Gaza overshot Tel Aviv last November and landed in the Mediterranean Sea.
An Iron Dome battery deployed near Eilat in southern Israel last week intercepted rockets fired from Sinai at the tourist enclave.
