WATCH: Israel Navy Preparing For Hamas, Hezbollah Rocket And Missile Threats

The Jerusalem Post reports: the navy is in the midst of  intensive preparations to deal with a growing rocket and missile threat posed by Hamas and Hezbollah, a senior IDF officer revealed on Wednesday.

Preparations include the installation of Rafael Advanced Defense Systems’ C-Dome system, a sea-based version of the Iron Dome anti-rocket battery, on missile ships.

A successful trial of the C-Dome occurred in February, the source said, when the defense system shot down three barrages of simulated Grad rockets fired by the IDF at a navy ship. All incoming threats were shot down, according to the source.
