The Iron Dome mobile short-range missile defense system was described by one
Ashkelon resident who saw it in action at the weekend as something “straight out
of a science fiction movie.” Another local man told Army Radio Sunday, “We saw
it launched. It was amazing.”Defense Minister Ehud Barak called the
successful operational debut of Iron Dome in the last few days “an extraordinary
achievement for the IDF.”
