Barak: Iron Dome Close to 100% Successful

Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on Sunday during his visit to the Iron Dome battery in Ashkelon that “we came here to see one of the peaks of the achievements of Israeli technology: an original, unique invention which can intercept rockets in the air and almost directly hit them.”

Barak added that “the success rate is amazing and close to 100%. We know that there is a long way and that we will need additional resources and extra batteries, but we’ve started on the right foot.”
