This was announced by a military spokesman. The missile defense had been located not far from the place where a few days ago some fragments of a Grad rocket had been found.
For the second time during the summer the deployment of this type of shied has occurred: last week another battery - Ynet underlines - had been placed near Safed, a town in northern Israel. The military spokesman said that the adoption of the defense system - located in a mountain area, not visible from the highway nearby Eilat, as Ynet website explains - is part of the effort to disguise the Iron Dome with the topography of the area.(ANSAmed).
