The Israeli army deployed its Iron Dome aerial defense system batteries throughout the country، on Thursday، as the Eurovision song contest kicked off earlier this week.

The Iron Dome batteries were deployed around Israel، specifically in southern Israel as Eurovision’s semi-finals kicked off on Tuesday May 14th and will hold its finals on Saturday May 18th.

The Hamas movement and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement warned Israel against any possible attacks during the Eurovision song contest.

According to Haaretz news outlet، Israeli army reservists have been activated to man the Iron Dome and will remain during Eurovision.
