The Defense Department confirmed that it is sending Iron Dome defense systems to Israel.“The U.S. will be flowing additional Iron Dome support to Israel,” the defense official said, per Fox News. “As a result, the Department of Defense is currently engaged in planning to support the provision of U.S. Iron Dome batteries to Israel.”When Hamas attacked Israel, the Iron Dome neutralized 90% of rockets, according to the IDF. The defense system works by detecting incoming projectiles using a radar system from around 40 miles away.Reps. Jared Moskowitz and Brian Mast proposed that the U.S. share its Iron Dome technologies with Israel since the nation has two that are “sitting idle and not being used.”“Every time the Iron Dome is used, it saves thousands of innocent Israeli and Palestinian lives from Hamas terrorists,” Moskowitz said. “Now more than ever, the United States must stand with Israel in their war against terrorists who wish nothing but to destroy Israel and the people that live there.”2005: Israel unilaterally withdraws from the Gaza Strip over three decades after winning the territory from Egypt in the Six-Day War. 2006: Terrorist group Hamas wins a Palestinian legislative election. 2007: Hamas seizes control of Gaza in a civil war. 2008: Israel launches military offensive against Gaza after Palestinian terrorists fired rockets into the town of Sderot.2023: Hamas launches the biggest attack on Israel in 50 years.
