Tensions rise: Additional Iron Dome batteries deployed across Israel

BREAKING: The IDF deployed additional Iron Dome missile defense batteries across Israel as preparation for a possible escalation and rocket attacks from Gaza.

Reports suggest the Islamic Jihad terror group, under pressure from Iran, is attempting to break the status quo between Israel and Hamas and will continue to fire rockets into southern Israel.

More than 11 rockets were fired by Muslim terrorists into Israel in the past week, and dozens of bombs attached to balloons landed in southern Israel.

Reports suggest that Iran is putting pressure on both Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror groups to carry out attacks against Israel following the elimination of arch-terrorist Qassem Soleimani.

The Islamic Jihad is reportedly behind most of the rockets fired towards Israel in the past two weeks.

According to reports, terror groups in Gaza have raised the alert as they believe military action, including targeted elimination of senior terrorists, will take place over the next few days.
