    IDF to deploy 4th Iron Dome battery

    In the face of continued rocket fire from the Gaza Strip, Israel will
    deploy a fourth battery of the Iron Dome rocket defense system in the
    coming weeks. Israel Air Force Col. Tzvika Haimovitch said that the
    system was demonstrating impressive results and "was being stretched
    to the max." The IDF is hoping to secure funding from the government
    for the continued production and delivery of additional Iron Dome
    batteries and interceptors. Defense officials have said that Israel
    requires at least 13 batteries to effectively protect itself against
    rockets fired from the Gaza Strip and Lebanon.
