In the drilling area in southern Israel, Iron Dome first encountered and successfully intercepted a number of missiles fired simultaneously from different directions. Thus ended the system's developmental stage, and it is set to become operational in November by Air Force anti-aircraft teams established especially for its operation.

In recent months the army has been working to locate areas in the Gaza vicinity in which it would be possible to station the Iron Dome, but has not planned to deploy it in the area yet due to the relatively few instances of rocket fire that have occurred lately. However, officials say a system can be stationed in the field within 24 hours if needed.

Defense Minister Ehud Barak said the Iron Dome is “an important milestone for the defense establishment and security industries that completed the development of the system in an incomparably short period of time”. He added that the system would be deployed as soon as possible.
