The 'Iron Dome' is a ground-to-air, short-range, air defence system that neutralises enemy rockets and missiles. The concept was born after the 2006 Israel-Lebanon War when Israel faced thousands of rockets fired by the Hezbollah.

The system is designed to mainly intercept short-range missiles and rockets coming in from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.
