The Iron Dome missile defense system, which was successfully tested early in 2010, should be deployed as soon as it is operational, Kadima MK Avi Dichter told the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Tuesday.

Dichter added that IDF is taking too long to deploy the system, considering the mounting rocket threat against Israel both from Hamas in the South and Hizbullah in the North.
