(Worthy News)-- The IDF deployed at least two Iron Dome anti-missile batteries in southern Israel on Friday, two days after three rockets were launched at Israel from the Gaza Strip, the Times of Israel reported.
One missile defense unit was stationed near the Mediterranean port city of Ashdod and another placed near the southern city of Netivot. Israel’s Channel 10 also referred to a third battery stationed near Ashkelon.
The move came a day after Israeli Air Force planes struck Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip following rocket fire at Israel claimed by a Salafist group sympathetic to the Islamic State. The rockets caused neither damage nor injury. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.timesofisrael.com/idf-deploys-iron-dome-batteries-to-south-after-rocket-fire/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
