The PIJ has found a weak spot in the Iron Dome. A while back, the defense system missed most of the missiles that were fired from Gaza because they were launched almost concurrently. Guerrillas used truck-mounted Grad launchers, reportedly coming mainly from Libya. Israeli citizens wanted to know how many rockets the Iron Dome can deal with simultaneously—in reality, not in theory.

Last Tuesday night, however, the Iron Dome worked better. Four Palestinian Grad missiles were aimed at Netivot and launched from the Gaza Strip. Iron Dome destroyed two of them; two others exploded on open ground.The video (Below) shows a Palestinian attack with Grad missiles.

OSINT News hopes the IRON DOME system will get even better, for the sake of the children living in Netivot. There are over 22 schools and 4,243 students in the city- 16 elementary schools with 3,053 students, and 11 high schools with 1,190 students. They are a bright group of children! Netivot's schools were chosen for a special pilot project in which elementary school children built their own mini-robots. Last year, Netivot  hosted a robotics festival sponsored by the international organization FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). Also, the city hosts the Mandel Center for Leadership in the Negev (MCLN) and runs a a two-year community-based leadership program in Netivot.
