Israel's Iron Dome intercepts rockets

The defence system boasts a 90 per cent success rate and has stopped more than 200 inbound missiles.

    Since Hamas proved its rockets could reach the central Israeli cities of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Israel has activated its Iron Dome system in an attempt to intercept Hamas rockets.

    The system claims a 90 per cent success rate and it is credited with taking out over 200 inbound missiles.
