Hamas fired 100 rockets into Israel since Friday...and the new "Iron Dome" missile defence system shot down almost 30% of them.

The system is programmed to only shoot down rockets that are heading directly towards a civillian population area-target...so the actual success percentage ratio might actually be higher.

Israel is installing more of these defence batteries at the moment.
