Iron Dome heads to Tel-Aviv area

Anti-missile system battery to be deployed in Tel Aviv Metropolitan Area as part of a drill simulating a missile attack.

Hezbholla owns rockets able to hit any point in Israel and it is estimated that Hamas also boasts an ever-growing arsenal of rockets able to target Tel Aviv. In the past, security officials estimated that the city will be the main target in the next major round of conflict.

As early as 2009, then Military Intelligence chief Amos Yadlin revealed that Hamas successfully tested a 60 km range rocket from the Gaza Strip. Yadlin said the rocket was likely manufactured in Iran and that its operator was trained in Syria or Iran. Such a rocket can easily hit Tel Aviv or the Ben Gurion Airport.
