5th Iron Dome battery turns operational, 2 placed in north
A fifth Iron Dome battery, which was used to intercept rockets fired at central Israel during Operation Pillar of Defense, has officially become operational and handed over to the Israeli Air Force.


Additionally, during the last few days, two other Iron Dome systems were placed in the north. The IDF's Spokesperson Unit said that spreading of Iron Dome systems throughout the country is part of the system's integration into the army. (Yoav Zitun)
