HIGH TECH/SCIENTIFIC ISRAEL
Israeli IRON DOME Stops a Rocket with a Rocket!
In the seven days since ISRAEL began its assault on the militant infrastructure in Hamas-run Gaza, IRON DOME has successfully intercepted more than 300 rockets, with a success rate of 80 to 90 percent! Developed with significent American financing, IRON DOME has prevented mass casualties by this system and the fact that most ISRAELIS have followed the instructions of THE HOME FRONT COMMAND, taking shelter in the 15 to 90 seconds they have between the warning sirens and the landing of a rocket. Amazingly, the system is designed to aim only at rockets headed for populated areas and to ignore those destined for open ground outside cities and towns.
