The US House of Representatives Wednesday voted to approve over $200 million to help the deployment of the Iron Dome missile defense system in Israel, AFP reported.

Speaking of the 212-206 vote, Democratic Representative Steve Rothman said, "This is only the latest example that when it comes to defense, military, and intelligence cooperation, the relationship between the US and Israel has never been stronger," according to the report.

"This funding sends a strong message, to both our enemies and allies, by providing more total dollars than ever before toward these rocket and missile defense programs," he added, AFP reported.
