Israel’s ‘Iron Dome’ Intercepts Rocket from Egypt
Israel’s ‘Iron Dome’, the world’s most advanced missile defense system, has intercepted a rocket from Egypt’s lawless Sinai region. The rocket is reported to have been fired towards the coastal city of Eilat, but was intercepted and detonated in mid air. This is the first time that a rocket fired at Eilat has been stopped by the Iron Dome. Islamist militant group Magles Shoura al-Mujahideen, which also has a small presence in the Gaza strip, claimed responsibility for firing the rocket.
