A new video released on an anti-Hamas YouTube channel “Sin” shows the effectiveness of Israel’s Iron Dome defense system as Israeli technology takes out 15 Qassam rockets simultaneously.
At the start of the video the wail of the Israel’s warning sirens can be heard, sending Israelis scrambling to their nearest shelters.
With the streets cleared, the camera then pans upward as within 30 seconds Iron Dome’s missiles track and destroy the 15 rockets, leaving the sky polka dotted with indicators of direct hits.
Rocket attacks continued until the very last moment when an open-ended ceasefire deal reached between Israel and Hamas came into effect Tuesday evening and held throughout the night and Wednesday morning, Ynetnews.com reported.
Hours earlier on Tuesday evening, two Israelis were killed by mortar fire on Kibbutz Nirim. They have been named as Ze’ev Etzion (55) and Shahar Melamed (43). Etzion was the kibbutz’s security chief and Melamed was his deputy.
