The IDF has deployed two Iron Dome batteries to northern cities due to regional tensions following air strikes in Damascus which foreign sources have attributed to the Israel Air Force.

In recent days, one battery has been stationed in Haifa, while another has been placed in Safed, a senior defense source said. The source stressed that "this is not the first time that the systems have been deployed to the North."

The IDF took similar action in the days before the January 30 air strike - also attributed to the IAF by foreign media - on a weapons convoy in Syria heading for Hezbollah in Lebanon carrying advanced anti-aircraft weapons.
