Israel would have sold Iron Dome air defense missile system to Azerbaijan according a country media. A battery of Iron Dome is ready to be handed over to the Azerbaijan military. In October 2016, it was announced that Israel will deliver six batteries of Iron Dome to Azerbaijan. Israeli army Iron Dome air defense system fires a missile to counter a rocket attack from the Gaza border.
     
The Iron Dome missile defense system, designed and developed by Israeli Defense Company Rafael and jointly funded through the United States, is a response to the threats Israel faces from short and medium-range rockets and mortar shells fired by Palestinian terrorists in Gaza.

The system has the capability to identify and destroy such projectiles before they land in Israeli territory and is considered one of the most effective anti-missile systems in the world.

Between 2008 and 2010, the Iron Dome system underwent a number of comprehensive tests and was declared operational in March 2011. On April 7, 2011, the system successfully intercepted its first projectile, a rocket fired from Gaza towards Israel.

As of August 2013, Israel has six Iron Dome batteries deployed in the south and north of the country and plans for six additional batteries to come online within coming months.

Iron Dome is an affordable, effective and innovative defense solution (CR&AM Class) to the asymmetric threats of short-range rockets, (up to and over 70 km), and mortars as well as VSHORAD Missiles System (up to 10 km) against traditional Air Defense targets.

Iron Dome uses a unique interceptor with a special warhead that detonates the targets in the air within seconds. The system can handle multiple threats simultaneously and efficiently.
