|Israeli Army to deploy more Iron Dome counter artillery system after terrorist attacks from Gaza.|
The Israeli army on Thursday, December 26, 2013, continues to deploy Iron Dome anti-missile batteries in the south, getting prepared for a possible escalation of violence in the vicinity of the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip. Overnight Wednesday, the IDF moved batteries of Iron Dome anti-rocket missiles to various areas of southern Israel. The IDF moved the batteries to the area in the wake of a recent increase in violence and attacks by Gaza Arab terrorists against Israelis.

On Wednesday, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said while visiting a military drill in the West Bank that the Israeli military is getting prepared for possible escalation in hostilities with Palestinian Militants.
His statements came a day after an Israeli Defense Ministry employer was killed by a Gaza sniper while fixing the border fence damaged by a recent storm.
On Tuesday afternoon, the IDF hit six targets in Gaza linked to terrorist groups. Gaza terrorists again Wednesday night attempted to kill Israeli civilians when they fired a rocket at towns in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council in southern Israel.
