(NEWS) IDF: Gaza Rocket Fire May Increase With Iron Dome

"Officials predict that Hamas will try to test the missile defense system that will be installed along the Gaza Strip periphery.

The IDF is preparing for the possibility that the scheduled deployment of the Iron Dome missile defense system along the Gaza Strip periphery in the coming months will increase the rate of rocket attacks against Israel, senior defense officials said on Sunday.

The Iron Dome was delivered earlier this month to an Air Force base near Gedera, where the IAF Air Defense Division will establish the headquarters for the new defense system, which is designed to defend against rockets at a range of 4- 70 kilometers."
