Iron Dome is a mobile all-weather air defense system developed by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems and Israel Aerospace Industries. The system is designed to intercept and destroy short-range rockets and artillery shells fired from distances of 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) to 70 kilometres (43 mi) away and whose trajectory would take them to an Israeli populated area. It is an amazing defense for the people of Israel against the relentless shelling from the Iranian and Biden-backed Hamas terrorist group.

The problem is, even this highly responsive system can we overloaded. This is a direct hit that took out an apartment building.
