Israel has had patriot missles furnished by the US since the 1990 invasion of Iraq,why haven't they used them on the missles being shot into northern Israel by the Hezuballah??

They are not made to shoot down the rockets being fired.

They are ment to shoot down scud ranged missles, which have a much longer flight path and flight time to get to them.

They also fly much higher than the rockets that are being fired.

Although the IDF do operate PAC3, they would quickly run out of missiles if they tried to intercept every Katuysha rocket. The best solution to the defence of Northern Israel would be THEL (laser).

The article states they have been deployed in case Hezbollah changes its methods. No where does it state they are using them. There is a difference.
