Look it up, Israel has an almost perfect record of intercepting and destroying all kinds of missiles, from large ballistic Scud types to smaller ‘makeshift’ rockets
Their capabilities in this respect have and are continuing to grow exponentially
I can only find scud fired in 1991 by Iraq and shot down by patriot batteries. Israel is regularly attacked by makeshift rockets, I stand my point. Lately, the patriots are mostly shooting down (or missing) UAVs that probably cost 1000 times less money than the missiles.
Google ‘Israel shoots down rockets’
Not big ICBM’s, but rockets
There is a substantial difference regarding missilery type arms and rockets. There are even large differences between ICBM and medium range missiles. Our defense systems are broken up by missile type; strategic or ICBM, theatre or medium ranged, and tactical or short range (under 50 miles).
Short range - Patriot system (RussIan S300)
Medium - THAAD (RussIan S400 or Israeli Arrow)
ICBM - GMD (RussIan Gorgon system)
The Israeli Iron Dome is for rockets and shells.
The odds of success for each varies.
