An Iron Dome anti-missile system battery was deployed to central Israel.

The battery was moved to the Sharon region north of Tel Aviv for the first time, according to the Israel Defense Forces. The region, which includes Netanya and Hadera, is believed to be within range of rockets fired by Hezbollah from Lebanon.

According to the IDF, the battery is being deployed as part of the regular operational process. Israel now has six operational Iron Dome batteries.

An Iron Dome battery deployed near Eilat in southern Israel intercepted rockets fired from Sinai at the tourist enclave last week.
