The IDF stationed an Iron Dome rocket-defense battery west of Eilat on Sunday.

The move comes days after two Grad type rockets were fired at the Red Sea resort city, apparently from the Sinai Peninsula.

The IDF spokesman confirmed the deployment of the battery, saying that the move was part of a national plan to test the system in various locations around the country.
