Israel Declares Naval Iron Dome System Operational (Photos)

Donate

The Israeli Defense Forces’s ship-mounted Iron Dome [Tamir-Adir] system was declared fully operational for use on a gunship off coasts on Monday.

During the test, the Iron Dome launcher was placed on the deck of the ship and connected to the ship’s radar. The system uses the Tamir interceptor missile developed for the Iron Dome as well as for the Adir radar used in the Arrow system. According to the report, all rockets were intercepted.

The maritime interception system is a collaborative effort of the Israeli Air Force and the Israeli Navy.It is designed to protect Israel’s gas fields and shipping lanes from short-range missiles.

According to Brig. Gen. Tzvika Haimovitch, the head of the IAF’s Aerial Defense Command, the system “added another operational layer” to the existing multi-tiered air defenses, joining the long-range Arrow 3 system and mid-range David’s Sling.

“For the navy, it’s a very high-valued capability because we are trying to defend Israeli land, ships and, of course, our strategic assets,” Col. Ziv Barak, head of the Weapons Department in the Israeli Navy, said.

For now, the system has only been installed on one naval ship, the Sa’ar 5-class INS Lahav. However, the Israeli military is going to install the system to additional existing corvettes.

    Who is paying ? The american goyim. XD.

    Funny how israelis have completety suck off USA. XD.

      Funny how it’s actually quite illegal for the US to offer any foreign aid to Israel. Our Congress passed a law in 1976 prohibiting aid to countries that have clandestine nuclear weapons programs and are not signatories to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. We have given Israel $260 billion of foreign aid since then.

      To get around the US Congress’s own laws, AIPAC and Israel convinced Obama and the (((US Department of Energy))) to make it a federal crime punishable by imprisonment for any government employee to say anything about israel’s nuclear program, ever. It’s called the Nuclear Gag Order, an that law itself violates the Constitution. See how that works, though? The Israeli-firster US Congress can ignore its own laws when it comes to Israel because it’s illegal for anyone in the US government to acknowledge Israel’s WMDs. The Israeli-firster Intelligence Community ignores this threat to the US and violation of our Constitution. The Israeli-firster US Justice Department for years has blocked any efforts that might go against Israeli interests including lawsuits demanding the US stop using fake loopholes and classifications to skirt the law regarding Israeli aid.

        Laws are made by the strongs for the weaks.

        • Vitex

          They’re not as strong as they think. Interestingly, in Islamic culture, the Dajjal (their version of the antichrist) is one-eyed. In other words, strong, but not very perceptive. Like Samson.

        • Jens Holm

          Its would be nice. Many laws are made against the weaks as well. If its about USA, You can see many republicans and a few democrates fixing election borderlines, so they take the other part out.

          You also see that winner takes all in UK. It even has a name: Rotten Borughs https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rotten_and_pocket_boroughs

          • Serious

            What I wanted to say is that Laws are made by the strongs against the weaks.

      • Jens Holm

        Thats how You keep a state alive no matter what. That can be changed by changing its constitution only.

        You can see other mixed things in it as well. Fx its allowed all to be armed against agression to the state, which kill a lot civilians because people are not all responsible, at the Constitution hopes. Most killings are – just as in the rest of the world – among family and close related. Weapons rise it skyhigh.

        Some has now finally realised, that an American president is no dictator. Mad Presidents like Trump cant do as they want. In the other hand USA almost can go on as usual having no Emirate Dictator regime.

        They also have a strange system for voting compared to us in Denmark and many other places. EVERYBODY get at votingcard and where to vote and when You can vote. When we arrive, we are ID`d and get the voting lists for political parties, where we also can choose single persons among those, which are in the parties.

        So we dont have to register ourselves and also are reminded by that, because people has to registrate where they live before 14 days. Even You have a normal secret addres, the letter comes. Only people needed resetling because os possible crimes against them has to go by the police and they give You a temp. ID for the proces.
        …………………………………………………………………………………………….

        As a private person I will add, that we all vote and therefore we also sometimes elect stupid people, but USA like today was totally impossible incl. Palin and Hillary here. Well Hillary might be possible as candidate, but never would have had that many votes.

        • Tommy Jensen

          “Sometimes”? All the time.

    • Jens Holm

      As usual its private investers. In stead of asking, You could use the internet. You have internet – havnt You.

    • Tommy Jensen

      Thats why they are going now for the fat lamb China and Russia´s unpolluted virgin ressources……..and you cant do a sh.t about it…………………LOL.

  • Garga

    To defend the gas fields Israel stole from Gaza and Lebanon.
    Are they even able to live ONE day without stealing something?

    • dutchnational

      Funny as the gasfinds are within the Israëli economic zone and neither Lebanon nor Palestinians claim these waters.

      Can you go just one day without clear untruths?

      • Solomon Krupacek

        jahve alwyas with right hand gave to chosen nation, and immediately took back with the left hand.

      • Garga

        The word you seek for is not “clear untruth”. No need to be sweet with me.
        Both Gaza and Lebanon have claim on those fields, it’s clear from the map I linked that Israel changed it’s marine territory unilaterally to steal northern gas fields from Lebanon (Lebanon protests) and takes advantage of it’s occupation of Gaza.

        As I said before, nobody is able to wake you up. You pretend to sleep.

      • Igor Dano

        Jewnational,
        Palestinians own the whole Palestrina.
        Jews have to go back to central Asia, as they are chazars, from central Asia, those parasites.

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    Jew’s live off of and suck the life out of ethnic-Japethites, even though Jews most badly want to wipe all ethnic-Japethites off of the earth first. haha
    Morons. The tides are turning, and the great ethnic-Japetic awakening is happening!

    they must be removed from these positons (by us who are fighting them and only by us ) in order to get international peace progress prosperity and a good better and more positive dialogue between all countries and their peoples who their own peoples will lead and decide what to do by and for themselves. manage what their internal and foreign affairs to other countries and people’s would be and not led by some private zionists’s monopoly organisation who wages wars on whoever they want and on behalf of whoever they control and whoever bans rothschild influence and rothschild’s-controlled banks into their country!

    should such a future international peace progress proccess dialoge between countires is to be then israHell turkey saudi arabia eritrea/ethiopia and pkk-rojava-peshmerga-kurdistan could be excluded because of their evil role of their tyranny and the logic of them even not being officialy recognised as countries (or maybe even by then they would already cease to exist before that) but rather occupiers of stolen lands by wars of aggression who occupy arab Palestine land and other neighbouring arab countries’s lands and their natural resources assets illegally from wars of aggression like e.g. Yemen and Somalia afghanistan with daesh and AQAP muslim-brotherhood-extremists and taliban and other plots of the the mossadistic so called “alliance of periphery” with their puppet collaborators alCIAda and MI6 .

    all of Western Sahara and its people will be freed from the corrupt dynasty government of morocco’s illegal occupation which has a long history of collaborating with the zionists’s mossad and will be a recognised country by all nations ( hassan II and the mossad were behind Mehdi Ben Barka’s dissapperance / kidnap / assassination !

    Birobidzhan isn’t enough for the evil zionists’s obssesion of world domination conquest . .
    History wasn’t written in ink , history was written in blood.

  • Thegr8rambino

    I doubt they will be able to fend off dozens or a hundred of hezb antiship missiles :)))

    • Jens Holm

      Thats right. I agree. They will attack hard in stead.

      • Igor Dano

        With nuclear weapons, as Jews threat?
        Then let us have the nukes as well.

    • Tommy Jensen

      Israel will first erase most missile systems in South Lebanon, then the rest of the missiles fired by Hezbollah will be intercepted by Iron Dome.
      Then Israel will attack and carpet bomb South Lebanon with tactical nukes to revenge the last time Israel got buttburnt.
      Then Israel will take their historical property rights in South Lebanon in possession, and collect all socks, underwears and shoes which the dead South Lebanese left in their houses for Israelis use.
      The Lebanese will not need them anymore and they are now Israels historical property……..LOL.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        you are the same idiot as floriangayer

      • Thegr8rambino

    • Solomon Krupacek

      • Thegr8rambino

        • Solomon Krupacek

          • Thegr8rambino

            i believe so, their warehouses in lebanon are overflowing with weapons/rockets/missiles, so they are storing them in syria :)))

          • Solomon Krupacek

            hezbollah has still old weapons, il newer. + advanced defense systems

            in 2006 hezbollah was able to destroy 20 merkavas from 400. 5%. in new war maybe 1 %
