High Court Rejects Eshkol Petition for Iron Dome

The Supreme Court rejected, on Monday, the Eshkol Regional Council's petition to require the state to deploy the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system or reinforce apartments in the region's communities.

A panel, headed by Court President Dorit Beinisch, ruled that balancing all the relevant considerations - changing security realities, operational factors, budgetary considerations and social equality, the government's decision was reasonable.
