IDF Confirms Iron Dome was Launched But Says Red Alerts Were False Alarm

The agreement, signed in Bucharest, will include development of the seaborne version of the Iron Dome short-range missile defense system, Samson remote control weapons systems and Spike tactical missiles, Rafael said in a statement. The IDF has confirmed that an Iron Dome battery was activated but stressed that the rocket sirens were a false alarm.

What Happened: Warning sirens sounded in the Golan Heights, Al-Arabiya television reported May 17. Reports that the interceptor had hit an aircraft, however, were mistaken. "The circumstances are being looked into", the military said in a statement.

Nasrallah said the rocket attack showed Syria and its allies are ready to go to "the greatest extent" to defend Syria from Israel.

Back on May 10, Israel conducted what it called its most intensive airstrikes on Syria in decades.

It comes after Hezbollah's leader said 55 missiles were fired from Syrian territory at the Golan Heights. It also blamed the purported rocket fire on Iran.

In response to the attack, the IDF launched a series of strikes on targets in Syria.

On the contrary, Iran has been offering advisory military assistance to the Syrian government fighting all-out foreign-sponsored militancy.
