    how about the SLA?  It appears Syria is heading the way that Lebanon did with various factions and militias fighting for control.

    I do have a question about the deployment of Iron Dome units in the north of Israel since they are not helpful against low trajectory weaponry such as mortars.  During WWII, the problem in German cities was not only the Allied bombs but the AA munitions that did not find a target falling back to earth.  Even today in the larger German cities, from time to time unexploded AA ordnance is discovered at building sites.

    Does the Iron Dome system not prevent some sort of risk, no matter how small, from falling debris at least?
