  • Israel redeploys Iron Dome in south

    August 5, 2011 | 8:47 am

    Israel is redeploying the Iron Dome short range missile defense system near its Gaza Strip border because of a recent intensification of rocket fire.

    Israeli newspapers reported Friday that Ehud Barak, the defense minister, ordered the redeployment at the request of local authorities in the region.

    At least 30 rockets were fired in July. The Israeli army has responded with air raids.
