“One of the real challenges Israel is facing right now is its Iron Dome missiles,” said Ted Cruz.
“The interceptors take these missiles one by one.”
“I’m going to tell you something Joe Biden could do today to show the President’s ultimate leadership.”
“He could get up and say we’re going to refill Israel’s Iron Dome missiles.”
“By the way, these missiles are never aimed at people,” said Cruz.
“They are targeting missiles that try to kill innocent civilians. The Biden government must act today to ensure Israel has adequate supplies of iron-dome missiles. “

We must always unite when it comes to loud and clear condemnation of violence against our friend and ally Israel.
Last year we again supported Israeli security funding, and now the Iron Dome continues to save countless Israeli lives.

The Iron Dome was built by the Israeli company Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, which describes the system as “the only multi-mission system in the world” that offers a combat-proven defense solution for combating missiles, artillery and mortars (C-RAM) PGMs for land and sea. “
From the Daily Wire:
Stunning images were captured during the week that Israel’s Iron Dome protects its citizens from terrorist attacks by Palestinian terrorist groups in Gaza.
The company adds:
The system works day and night and in all weather conditions, including low clouds, rain, dust storms or fog. Iron Dome protects cities and strategic assets, maneuverers and ships. Iron Dome can handle multiple threats simultaneously and efficiently.
Iron Dome is economical as it enables effective selective handling of critical threats targeting a pre-defined zone of defense, reducing unnecessary interceptions. The system uses a unique interceptor with a special warhead that detonates the target warhead in mid-air. When the estimated airborne threat trajectory is directed towards the defended zone, an order is issued and an interceptor is launched against the threat. Iron Dome is highly mobile and can be configured to defend an urban area, a Forward Operating Base (FOB). or troops on the move. Iron Dome can be integrated into most standard vehicles and is roll-on-roll-off transportable in most transport aircraft.
