IDF Gets Defense Boost in Form of New Iron Dome Battery

As rocket fire from Gaza continues, the defense establishment received a reinforcement on Friday in the form of an additional Iron Dome anti-missile battery.

The new battery, the eighth one to be acquired by the IDF, was given to the Israel Air Force on Friday afternoon. The battery became operational in the evening hours and will improve Israel’s ability to defend residents from rocket attacks.
