The Iron Dome and Arrow missile defense systems are meant to protect IDF bases and the army's ability to attack, not necessarily to protect citizens, IDF OC Northern Command Maj.-Gen. Gadi Eizenkot said at a lecture at Haifa University on Tuesday.

"Citizens should not be deluded into believing that someone is opening up an umbrella above their heads," Eizenkot stated. "The systems are meant to protect Air Force bases, Navy bases and enlistment bases."
