More from the latest edition of the DEBKAfile, the Palestinian rocket artillery offensive from the Israeli perspective. Within context of the Israeli Iron Dome air defenses system see most blog entries here and here.
1. "Palestinians believe they can beat Iron Dome. Israel refutes this dangerous illusion"
"Palestinian media have been crowing over their “success” in overcoming Israel’s famed anti-rocket Iron Dome system, ever since the Gaza ceasefire early Monday May 6 cut short their 8th rocket onslaught on southern Israel. The Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorist groups boast that their tactic of concentrated rocket volleys achieved this feat."
2. "Iran’s Badr 3 missile debuts against Israel in Palestinian rocket offensive"
"The Iranian Badr 3 missile explodes within 20m of target and releases a 1,400-piece shower of shrapnel fragments. On Monday, April 6, hours into the Gaza ceasefire, Palestinian and Iranian sources released a video showcasing the new Iranian weapon targeting Ashkelon, 13 km north of Gaza."
SO? DOES IRON DOME WORK OR DOES NOT WORK. WORKS OBVIOUSLY BUT NOT SO TOTALLY 100 % EFFECTIVE BUT SHOULD NEVER BE EXPECTED TO BE OTHER THAN THAT!
