Israel air defense chief: Iron Dome made no mistakes

Brig.-Gen. Zvi Haimovitch, the IDF air defense commander, Monday maintained that there was “no malfunction or human error” in the performance of the Iron Dome short-range missile defense system Sunday. The battery fired multiple missiles, he said, after identifying a projectile launched against Israel. DEBKAfile: This comment added to the confusion over the incident. The military spokesman earlier reported that the Iron Dome battery’s response was triggered by heavy machine gun fire inside the Gaza Strip; no rockets had been fired against Israel; and the system’s malfunction was being investigated.

    Hamas has just put in order for $10,000 of Machine Gun Tracer bullets. . .

    Israel puts in an order for another Billion dollars of Iron Dome systems. . .

    Isn’t it time to talk peace?

      Your understanding of this complex situation is incomplete. It is not driven by land, it is driven by Satan.
      There will never…..let me repeat this ..never…be peace in the middle east until Christ rules.
      Maybe there will be brief periods of as much as 3 years….but they will quickly evaporate into war.

    The iron dome incoming projectile signal receiver is too sensitive.
