Lucky Driver Narrowly Missed By Hamas Rocket

Published May 17, 2021

Dozens more Hamas rockets have been fired at Tel Aviv, and several of them have made it through the Iron Dome defense system.


A CCTV security camera captured one of those rockets impacting and detonating very near a civilian vehicle traveling on a roadway. The vehicle likely sustained damage, but the occupants were not significantly injured.


It's not clear why more rockets have seemingly penetrated the Iron Dome's protective web in the past couple days, as there are many factors to consider. Israel claims the Iron Dome has a 90% success rate, and given the vast amount of rockets currently targeting Israel, that means dozens are getting through, so it may just seem like a lot.


Additionally, the insurgents may be figuring out ways to bypass the system's effectiveness. Rockets fired at a target from less than 2.5 miles away are much harder for the Iron Dome to detect and intercept before they hit. Is it possible the system is being overwhelmed? Each interceptor pod costs approximately $80,000, so is it possible that the IDF has tightened the requirements for what it considers priority protected infrastructure, and limiting the defensive launches to certain areas?
