Due to this Iron dome system, the casualties are limited to single digits, that also in the worst cases. During the recent Israel-Palestinian conflict, the explosions in the sky are accompanied by sirens on the streets.
What is Iron Dome System?
However, Iron Dome system is a short range air defense system. It is particularly designed to intercept rockets, artillery and mortars. Israel is using this system since 2011. This defense system is the reason for less casualties from rockets fired on Israeli cities.
The air defense system was developed by Israel defense firms – Rafael defense firms and Israel Aerospace Industries. The US supported Israel technically and financially to build this system.
Iron dome system counters medium and long – range threats with interceptors. During the recent Israel-Palestinian conflicts, the Iron Dome was on work and intercepted all the rockets fired by the terrorists from the Gaza strip.
