"Iron Dome" will be perhaps one of the phrases which will be remembered most from the current battle between Israel and the Gaza-based Hamas terrorists.
Over 300 rockets aiming at Israeli cities and army bases were shot down over the last 7 days alone, demonstrating an 80% success rate.
Produced by Israeli-based Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, the system detects launches of rockets and can fire an interceptor with a special warhead that strikes the incoming rocket within seconds.
During one of the days of the battle, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak came to inspect one of the locations were the Iron Dome batteries are deployed.
A COLlive photographer was permitted to document the visit, but not to identify its location.
A few other Lubavitchers were present as well and they told the Minister about prayers that are being said around the world for Israel.
The system in action was filmed by an Israeli citizen and was sent to COLlive:
