Destroy enemy rockets with counter missiles
After that, anticipating the attack using their radar, the operators of the “Iron Dome” launch counter-missiles and destroy the rocket in the air. Each Iron Dome launcher carries 20 interceptor missiles. These missiles have an unmatched ability to intercept rockets and missiles. It destroys rocket attacks up to an altitude of 70 km. However, Israel must pay a heavy price for this. He has to spend $ 50,000 for each interceptor missile. Faced with the threat of attack, Israel has deployed Iron Dome system batteries to unknown locations across the country.
The Iron Dome has protected Israel since 2011
Israel first deployed the Iron Dome system in 2011. After the Israeli-Lebanese war in 2006, the Israeli government announced the creation of this system. In the Israeli-Lebanese war, Hezbollah fired thousands of rockets at Israel. Learning the lessons of this attack, Israel decided to build the Iron Dome system. The Iron Dome system was built by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems from Israel. He was also helped by Israel Aerospace Industries. The Rafale company claims that the Iron Dome is able to deter 90% of attacks. It also has a mobile version which provides air security for military, industrial and administrative buildings. There is also a naval version of the Iron Dome that protects Israeli ships at sea.
