Iron Dome Battery Deployed in North

An Iron Dome missile-defense battery has been deployed in the north of the country, near Safed, where it is expected to remain for the coming days. 

The battery was deployed in that same area in August of 2012 as part of a test of the system. 

However this time it is not yet known if the deployment is a sign of impending conflict, particularly amid threats of chemical weapons in Syria, or part of routine testing.
