Israel - Hamas Conflict


Israel’s Iron Dome air defense system is considered one of the most effective tools in its arsenal. Its defense ministry says it successfully intercepted 97% of all Palestinian rockets fired during one weekend surge of fighting in Gaza last year, while the system recorded a 95.6% success rate during a rocket attack by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in May. In comparison, “Palestinian militant groups, all put together, do not compare to that kind of arsenal,” said Hellyer, who is also from the Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies.
