Palestinians believe they can beat Iron Dome. Israel refutes this dangerous illusion

Palestinian media have been crowing over their “success” in overcoming Israel’s famed anti-rocket Iron Dome system, ever since the Gaza ceasefire early Monday May 6 cut short their 8the rocket onslaught on southern Israel. The Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorist groups boast that their tactic of concentrated rocket volleys achieved this feat. For example, they cite the 60-rocket triple volley they fired at Ashkelon and Ashdod in one minute on Sunday, May 5, which, they claim, proved that Iron Dome was not up to preventing an extra-heavy rocket barrage from causing extensive casualties and damage.
The Palestinian terrorists make a habit of claiming victory after every bout of violence with Israel. This time, however, they are selling their garbled version of events far and wide across Arab media. This conviction and the overweening self-confidence gripping the Palestinian terrorists hold dangers for several reasons:

  1. They are presenting themselves as capable of defeating Israel’s most advanced weaponry.
  2. Iran and Hizballah are claiming kudos in the region as the providers of weaponry and technology for the Palestinian “resistance” to beat Iron Dome. The latest Gaza flareup is presented as a testing-ground for Iranian arms that will later be used in other anti-Israel fronts.
  3. Convinced they have pulled off a major victory, Hamas and Jihad leaders are eager to repeat their success with another round of hostilities against Israel as soon as possible.

It shot of reality for sobering up the wildly euphoric Palestinian terrorists had become necessary. It came from the horse’s mouth, a director of Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, which produces Iron Dome. Brig. Gen. (res.) Shahar Shochat, former head of the IDF’s Air Defense Division, and current Dep Director of Strategy and Commerce at Rafael, praised the weapon’s excellent performance against the Palestinian rocket onslaught in a radio interview on Tuesday, May 7. He said Iron Dome had stood up to all the challenges it had faced. The expert teams operating the batteries had been apprised that the Palestinians were trying new tactics for beating Iron Dome and were ready with fitting adjustments.

He noted that Iron Dome could boast 2,000 interceptions of enemy rockets since it went into service in 2011. In the latest contest, said Shochat, it prevented more than 200 rockets from devastating populated Israeli areas and scored a hit rate of 85 percent. Shochat promised that the designers and operators of Iron Dome were constantly adjusting the system to the next challenges in store. “It is important to stay a step ahead of the enemy,” he stressed.
Although Shochat may have marginally overstated the weapon’s interception score this week – some experts offer lower estimates – Iron Dome remains an abiding and unique wonder weapon for keeping safe more than a million Israeli civilians, when their homes come under fire, time and time again, from massive Palestinian terrorist rocket aggression.

      The Palestinians seem to be on another Missions of Mindless Mutual Missiles Planning Societal Suicide rather than Peaceful Thoughtful Solutions for all Cultures, Religions, and People Living in Harmony in the Middle East?

      The Palestinians have decided to again choose the Wrong Sides of Iran, Hamas, Hizbollah, and Houthis by Refusing the Opportunity a Soulful Solution for Mutual Societal Living and Prosperity.

      True Leading comes from Brave Palestinians that care about Developing Education for the Future of All Children not Missiles of Indiscriminate Devastation on Mutual Land that can be Harvested for All!

        Quit blaming the Crusades that happen in 1200 CE because the Ottoman Islamic Empire stopped Christian Pilgrimages to Jerusalem and started Persecutions and Conquests of European, Asian, and African Lands, Nations, and Other Religions and attempted to impose Islamic Conversions as they do now in the Middle East.

        The Crusades led to European Imperialism Dominance as Jehovah-G-d-Allah Bestowed Enlightenment on Developing the India Numeric Mathematical System upon European Renaissance Scholars and Scientists. They stopped the Islamic Kingdom Militarizes Cruel, Backward, and Inferior Kingdoms of Tribal Sultans,Kings, Sheiks, and Emperors by Mongol, Christian, Emperors, Kings, and Queens. As Jehovah-G-d-Allah’s Permission to End in Defeats by France’s Charles Mange, Spain’s El Cid, Poland’s John Sobieski at Vienna, and European England and French Removal of Turkish Control throughout the Middle East in World War I. As European Kings and Queens with Jehovah-Allah Almighty putting Arab Kings and Shah’s on Thrones by European Monarch’s Selection and Permission. As well as, American Pre-WWII-Post permitting Middle East Independent Nation including Jehovah’s Israel. While the Persian and Iranian Shiia were Never Approved by Allah for Shiia Caliphate and remain in Subordinate Civilization now seen today as well as on the Path of Divine Destruction from within the Tehran Throne of Shiia Tyranny.

    • May 7, 2019 @ 22:18 at 22:18

      I agree. My thinking is that there are Israeli undercover agents in Gaza and we don’t want to injure or kill them by mistake. My friend Eugenia Evans OBM was married to Major Clifford V. Evans OBM in Jerusalem a long time ago. Cliff was a pilot in the US Air Force and he trained Israeli pilots in Tel Aviv. Eugenia was a very wise lady. She used to tell me “Ask them (The “palestinians”) to go and they will leave”. At first I did not agree with her thinking, however as time went by I realized that she was right. We should ask them all to leave Israel once and for all. They do not want peace and they continue to teach their children to hate Jews. There is plenty of money from Qatar and other countries to resettle these people somewhere in the Middle East. The Hamas and others can be handled in a different way. Once their “leaders” move out the rest will follow. Shalom.

      funny. every time the arabs retell a story, it gets more and more exaggerated, like this one, 150,000 have now become 300,000. why not millions?

      and 1/3 of the rockets fired from gaza misfired, and never even made it over the border. so lebanese can expect 50,000 hezbollah rockets landing on their heads, without iron dome, and without bomb shelters. even if israel doesn’t fire back, hezbollah will wreck lebanon.

      because iran doesn’t care.

    Within a couple of border crossings from Israel there must be 15 or more muslim countries – all of which would dearly love to see Israel destroyed. Even within Israel’s own borders are two major population centers of muslims who also would love to see Israel destroyed.
    The problem is, they’ve tried and tried but they just can’t seem to get anywhere. Every time shooting breaks out the score is heavily weighted in Israel’s favor. Even in this last little dustup the score was 25-4.
    It’s been the same throughout history. Many nations have tried to destroy Israel. Most of the world has even gotten in on the action.
