Iron Dome system is deployed by Israel

Would counter retaliatory strikes

JERUSALEM — Israel deployed a battery of its missile defense system, Iron Dome, to the Tel Aviv suburbs Friday to defend its citizens against possible retaliation if the threatened US-led military strike against Syria is carried out.

As part of preparations against rockets that could be fired either by forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad or by Assad’s allies in the Lebanon-based Shi’ite militant organization Hezbollah, the Israeli air force also deployed Iron Dome batteries north and south, in Haifa, Ashkelon, and Eilat, and is ready to move two additional units, Israeli officials said.
