Iron Dome Missile Defense System protecting parts of southern Israel.

An Iron Dome anti-missile defense system has been redeployed outside the southern port city of Ashdod, according to Israel’s Channel 10 TV.

Various batteries of the mobile all-weather air defense system are moved around the country to different areas as needed.


This past summer, the system received an unspecified upgrade to “widen the capacity and improve the performance” of the equipment, according to the Defense Ministry.

The move comes in advance of Friday’s upcoming “Day of Rage” declared this week by Gaza’s ruling Hamas terror organization.

Other terror groups also support the scheduled day of violence against Israel, intended to echo daily Arab violence aimed at Jews from Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount.

Arab Muslims trashed their own house of worship in order to use broken cement blocks as weapons against Israeli police and Jewish visitors to the compound.

Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas seized the opportunity to regain the Arab spotlight, vowing Wednesday to “protect” Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem.

“Al-Aqsa is ours and the Holy Sepulcher is also ours,” he declared at his office in the PA capital city of Ramallah. “They have no right to dirty the mosque with their filthy feet, we won’t let them do it.

“We will do whatever we can to defend Jerusalem,” he told activists from the eastern part of Israel’s capital.

  1. Estremest Muslim Rage – really – that is just everyday living. Wake up in the morning and pray to hate, live hate all day long, and pray for more hate at night. Likely there are great drugs that keep them in that wonderful hate state. Great way to live.

    OK so Friday is the "Day of Rage" – so are we alowed to fight back or we are supposed to be the only people who don't out of fear of public reaction? OK – so lets take bets on how many people get to blow themselves up – oh maybe for great photo session someone can be a martr and blow up his own village to get everyone there together. Make sure there are many babies there from the Christians that have been abducted. The sickening part is there is no answer for these extremests other than extermination like the animals they show themselves to be. Take the women and children who clearly would need severe deprogramming. The kids are all products of rape anyhow with no future.

    Wimpy jews no more – stand up and fight like the good old days. My father had to do it just to survive. I guess nothing has really changed since 1955. I will continue to make my little army of dog protection. BTW dogs do bite when prevoked or when they know they need to protect their family. 110 pounds of pure dog protection – no human can offer that type of loyalty. It is so nice having a dog you know will deal with the bad guys. He poses as a family pet but is not -he is our protector.

    The Iron Dome system was funded and developed exclusively by Israel. The first 2 production systems were funded exclusively by Israel.

    The US did not believe it was possible to intercept the types of rockets that Iron Dome intercepts, so it did not want to participate in the project when it was conceived.

    After proving itself, the US decided to fund additional Iron Dome batteries, and wants the technology and coproduction rights in return.
