The Defense Ministry deployed a fifth Iron Dome battery in the Gush Dan area in the center of Israel on Saturday morning.

The battery, originally scheduled to be deployed in two months time, was expedited in light of the ongoing security escalations and rocket barrages striking Israel.

Iron Dome has 90% success in accurate interception of rockets.
