Iron Dome worked good enough in the 4 days of last Gaza skirmish.With over 90% of succesfull interception rate (90% of missiles...not mortars or
rockets) i say the Iron Dome passed the test for Iran attack.
Southern front already have 4 Irom Dome batteries, and 90% of anything bigger than a mortar or a home-dame rocket will be shot down.
The thing is ( about the more advanced missiles) the more advanced a missile is, the more range he have...aka, the more TIME to get locked and shot
down.It is likely that Grad's and Fajir's will have be shot down almost 100%, by Iron Dome alone.
If we take into account the Arrow systems ( 2nd liar of israeli missile shield) which is designed to shot down the medium and long range missiles,
i'd say Israel it pretty much invulnerable from Gaza and Iran missiles attack, and partially from Hezbollah attacks.I say partialy, because Hezbollah
can go "all-in" and launch too many missiles, so numbers will beat Arrow system...BUT, there are Patriot systems inside Israel AND Aegis destroyers
close to israeli waters.
Iran DO NOT have enough missiles to hit Israel, because only Shahab 3 can reach Israel (and Iran have under 100 of those) rest are medium and short
range missiles, BUT impresive in numbers, over 11,000.
So, when (not if) the war will start, Iran will attack US bases and ships in the area, will probably block the Strait and might, in desperation, to
hit oil facilities in Saudi Arabia, EAU, etc.
Hezbollah will be the MAIN enemy of Israel (over 40,000 missiles, close to 60,000 rockets).
If the S realy HTF, Syria will go also "all-in", and might use chemical warheads against Israel.
There 2 possible outcomes after Israel attacks Iran :
1.Iran will do nothing or
2.will be a total mess in ME, which might lead to WW3.
