IDF deploys Iron Dome batteries in Sderot, Netivot

The IDF deployed Iron Dome anti-rocket batteries in the southern cities of Sderot and Netivot on Sunday, two days after a Gazan rocket fired by an ISIS-affiliated terror group slammed into Sderot, damaging a bus and a home.

The air force’s Active Defense Wing set up the two batteries days after it deployed an Iron Dome battery in Ashdod, which went into action on Friday night and fired an interceptor to destroy a Gazan rocket heading towards Ashkelon.

The deployments reflect IDF preparations for potential additional attacks by the the Sheikh Omar Hadid Brigades, a Salafist organization affiliated with Islamic State, which said it was behind both rocket attacks on Friday.
