Iron Dome reportedly deployed near Haifa

JERUSALEM (JTA) — An Iron Dome anti-missile system reportedly was stationed near Haifa.

The deployment of the system in a heavily populated area of northern Israel over the weekend comes amid increased tension from Syria and its two-year civil war.

The Israeli military moves its five anti-missile batteries around the country as needed in areas threatened by attack.

A sixth battery is due to be delivered in the coming month, according to reports.
