THE Iron Dome in Israel is the first missile interceptor of its kind in the world, and is said to have a 90 per cent success rate at bringing down targets.

Thousands of rockets have been intercepted by the mobile air defence system, including during violent clashes with Gaza in May 2021. Here's the lowdown on the high tech system.

The Iron Dome is a mobile, all-weather air defence system in Israel designed to intercept and destroy short-range rockets and 155mm artillery shells fired from a distance of 4km to 70km.

It intercepts rockets that are travelling in the direction of a urban areas and brings them down - it is the first system of its kind in the world.

Developed by Rafael Advanced Defence Systems, if can be operated in all weather conditions including fog, dust storm, low clouds and rain.

Israel hopes to increase the range of the dome's interceptions to 250km and make it able to stop rockets coming from two directions.

The system was ready for use in March 2011 and in April it had successfully intercepted a BM-21 Grad launched from Gaza for the first time.

In March 2012 The Jerusalem Post reported that the Iron Dome had shot down 90 per cent of rockets launched from Gaza that would have landed in populated areas.

    Hamas, the surest sign of insanity is repeating the same thing over and over and expecting different results. They spend so much money, resources, and time trying to murder Israeli's, when they could be using that money for schools, amenities for tourists on that beautiful beach of theirs, business, diplomacy. There is no cure for stupid.

    They sell this air defence and there is a weapons expo coming up. Anyone who thinks that Isreal did not start this is delusional. They targeted civilian populations for months and eventually, people snap and fight back. Such a shame that the military-industrial complex is running the world and nothing changes. Bush 2 wars, Obama 5 wars and relative peace for most of the next 4 and here we go again. Most of both Covid relief bills were packed with money for Isreal. Only 9% of it went to American taxpayers. When will people wake up to these politicians? They should have a maximum term length in the Senate, Congress and Parliament. Then you would not get 50-55-year-old Senators like Joe Biden. All American presidents are chosen and are puppets in most cases. That is why Executive Orders are used so frequently. Obama was at war every single day he was president, which tells you all you need to know.

    Take this for what you will, but I feel like I should at least share this. I once had a vivid dream over a year ago now where I saw a situation frighteningly similar to this. In the dream, I was riding along in my grandmother's car (weird detail, but I know for sure that it was) along a wide open field during night time. I looked out the windows to see a gorgeous night sky. The kind of night sky you would see from a professional photographer that shows all the stars and the milky way and all that. Then suddenly there were what looked like small explosions happening in the air like there was some sort of conflict in the air. The car then sped up quite suddenly and started to veer off to the side of the road. The dream ends there.
    Edit:
    A lot of dreams are very unremarkable and quite forgettable for me, but I still remember exactly how the dream went to this day.
