Earlier tonight, IAF Air Defense Corps forces successfully used the “Iron Dome” system to intercept a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip at the Israeli Home Front.

Immediately afterwards, an IAF aircraft targeted the squad of terrorists who fired the rocket and confirmed a hit.

It should be stressed that the “Iron Dome” system, though operational, is still under evaluation.

The IDF (Zahal) will continue to operate in order to defend the residents of Israel’s southern communities.
