The land-based Iron Dome is known for protecting Israel against missiles fired by terror organizations. Now the IDF has a new system based at sea, enhancing Israel’s defense capabilities.
The Israeli military on Monday declared initial operational capability of a ship-based version of the Iron Dome intercepting system following a live-fire test earlier in the day that destroyed multiple incoming targets at sea, defensenew.com reported.
“Officially, from today, we added another operational layer to defend Israeli assets in the Mediterranean Sea,” Brig. Gen. Zvika Haimovich, commander of the Air Force’s Aerial Defense Division, told the site.
Furthermore, according to defensenews.com, integration of the ship-based interceptor and its interoperability with land-based systems could just as easily be used to defend against threats beyond its northern border, said Navy Capt. Ziv Barak.
