Tensions between Israel and Palestine persist in the Gaza Strip. In Gaza, the Health Ministry said in a message to reporters that 103 Palestinians have died and 487 injured since tensions began on Monday. Hamas militants fired more than 1,600 rockets into Israel on Monday in Gaza, while the Israeli military says it destroyed a lot of rockets from its missile defense system in the air. Let us know which missile defense technology does Israel have, by which it has thwarted this terrible attack….
90 percent effective
This Israeli air defense system is being called the ‘Iron Dome’. The Israeli military claims that its ‘Iron Dome’ system destroys 90 percent of the enemy’s missiles in the air. This air defense system also destroys the enemy’s drones.
World’s best defense system
The Israeli company Rafael Advance Defense System and the Israel Aerospace Industry have created this air defense system. The ‘Iron Dome’ air defense system considers the world as iron. It is one of the best defense systems in the world. It is capable of hitting in any weather, including day and night.
This is how its construction started
Let us now know the story behind its construction. In fact, the 2006 Israeli war with Hezbollah of Lebanon broke out. Thousands of rockets were fired by the enemies on Israel. Taking lessons from this, Israel announced the creation of an advanced air defense system.
Army Incorporated since 2011
Israel also took help of Allied States in the construction of this advanced air defense system and developed it rapidly while working. Israel has been protecting its citizens through this air defense system since 2011.
This is how it works
Let us now know how it works. Actually it is a ground-to-air defense system, which is equipped with radar and Tamir interceptor missiles. The radar gives information about enemy missiles and tells where the missile or rocket may fall and how far it is. After this, interceptor missiles do their job and enemy rockets are destroyed in the air.
The ‘Iron Dome’ air defense system is a multipurpose warhead. The interceptors in its missiles are so precise that enemy missiles, rockets and drones track and destroy the exact location in the air. The air defense system also has the capability to destroy fighter jets and helicopters.
These missiles also fail
The accuracy of the ‘Iron Dome’ air defense system is around 90 percent. It has the capability to thwart C-RAM, Cruise Missiles, Guided Missiles (Precise Guided Missiles, PGM), drones (UAVs) and other air strikes.
Naval version is also ready
This defense system can cause more than 2000 targets to collapse simultaneously. Israel has invested heavily on this world’s best air defense system (Iron Dome) to protect its people. Israel has also prepared a similar naval version for maritime security. It is named C-DOME.
