The IDF will move the Iron Dome counter-rocket defense system to the Gush Dan region in the coming weeks, senior defense officials said on Monday as the Israel Air Force deployed the second battery of the system in southern Israel.

The battery was deployed south of Ashkelon as rocket attacks continued on Monday with one rocket landing south of the seaside city. No injuries were reported in the rocket attack which came after several days of quiet.

The IDF had been bracing for an increase in rocket fire from the Gaza Strip after the Air Force bombed a car traveling in Khan Younis Saturday morning killing three senior Hamas operatives who, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) said were planning attacks against Israelis in the Sinai Peninsula.
