The IDF has deployed Israel’s short to mid-range Iron Dome anti-missile defense system in Israel’s “deep south” in the wake of Sunday’s attack on Israel from Gaza. The move could signal concerns over a possible uptick in attacks from the south.
An Iron Dome anti-rocket battery was set up Monday in the city of Sderot, located less than a mile from the Gaza border.
The moves follow the latest rocket attack against Israel by Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization. A short-range Qassam rocket landed Sunday in a residential section of the city, between two houses.
Miraculously, no one was physically injured in the attack.
Israeli Air Force fighter pilots immediately retaliated in response to the attack, bombing terrorist targets within the enclave and wounding at least five operatives in the process.
