iron-domeThe Israeli Defense Ministry on Monday announced the successful testing of an upgraded version of the Iron Dome missile defense system.

According to Channel 10 TV, Iron Dome intercepted a missile heavier than a Fajr - the type fired at Tel Aviv and Yerushalayim by Hamas in November - and fired from a greater distance. This suggests that Iron Dome is being upgraded to protect Israeli cities against longer-range missile threats.
