Israeli army deploys Iron Dome around Gaza

Days of Palestine -

Days of Palestine, Jerusalem -Israeli army has deployed Iron Dome defence system around Gaza Strip; a measure aroused fears of Israeli preparation for new offensive on the coastal enclave.

Israeli news reports said the military lift gag order on reporting about the new deployment of the Iron Dome near the illegal Sderot and Nitefot settlements in the western Negev known as the Gaza periphery.

The Israeli army made no disclosures about the security considerations which led to the deployment of the Iron Dome.

However, Israeli analysts believe this was most likely a response after the launch of several rockets at the Israeli occupation, as well as to the latest military exercises carried out by Hamas across the Gaza Strip.
