Israel's Iron Dome System Works

Excellent news.

Residents in Ashkelon reported Thursday seeing Israel's new Iron Dome defense system intercept a Grad rocket fired towards the southern city from the Gaza Strip. Eyewitnesses told Ynet they saw the rocket explode in midair and realized that the system had intercepted its first rocket.

Will it stop every rocket fired at Israel? Probably not. But any one that it does intercept makes Israel that much safer.
