Dramatic footage emerged on social media late Sunday showing Israel’s ‘Iron Dome’ missile defense system destroying two rockets above a crowded music festival.
“BREAKING: A few minutes ago 3 rockets were fired from Gaza towards Israel. 2 were intercepted above Sderot. Hundreds enjoyed a music festival when the rockets were intercepted right above them. By chance no one was hurt. Today the Iron Dome saved dozens of innocent civilians,” posted one user on social media.

The attack comes days after the ‘Squad’ of Congresswomen continued their verbal attacks on Israel.
“We in the United States have a constructive role to play. We give Israel more than $3 billion in aid every year. This is predicated on them being an important ally in the region, and the ‘only democracy’ in the Middle East,” mocked Omar.
“We must be asking, as Israel’s ally, the Netanyahu government stop the expansion of settlements on Palestinian land and ensure full rights for Palestinians if we are to give them aid,” she added.
Omar posted a massive, anti-Israeli tirade on social media last Friday, just hours after she was denied entry into the Jewish State for her outspoken support of multiple boycott initiatives.
“Let’s be clear: the goal of our trip was to witness firsthand what is happening on the ground in Palestine and hear from stakeholders —our job as Members of Congress. But since we were unable to fulfill our role as legislators, I am sharing what we would have seen,” she posted on Twitter. “First, I planned to hold meetings with members of the Knesset (both Jewish and Arab) along with Israeli security officials.”
“The humanitarian crisis in Gaza is one of the worst in the world—with 97% of water unfit for human consumption and on the verge of collapse. Most of the people in Gaza are children,” she added. “77% of shops have closed bc of military occupation. Palestinians walk with garbage nets above their heads, put up to catch trash thrown by settlers. Violent attacks on Palestinians are routine.”
