Israel’s Iron Dome vs Hamas rockets – an annotated graphic

Israel’s Iron Dome missile defence system is designed to attack short-range rockets and shells. Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on Sunday that of 300 attempted Iron Dome interceptions in the past five days, about 85 per cent had succeeded. That’s 255 missiles intercepted, 45 missed. Not a bad interception ratio, all in all, although try telling that to the people those 45 landed on.
