Tzipi Livni was turned away from an Iron Dome anti-missile battery where she had planned to hold a campaign photo opportunity.

Livni, head of the new center-left party Hatnua, and Amir Peretz, who is second on her party list, were prevented from holding a photo op at the Ashkelon site on Tuesday for failing to cleared the visit with Israel's military and because military officials feared that the photos would give away the battery's exact position, Haaretz reported.

The party wanted to use the battery as a backdrop since Peretz had pushed for the development of Iron Dome when he served as defense minister in 2006 and 2007.
