These rockets are much more expensive than that! They have to be shipped across the globe, then smuggled across the Sinai, finally entering through tunnels with fees... More like $25,000 a piece, a reason why so few are fired. Anyway, the best part of this story is that a successful Iron Dome means $$$$$ for the Israeli Defense Industries... Countries will be lining up to purchase this system, as it is truly a one of a kind. This is worth big bucks. So, protect civilians from terrorist attacks and also make Israel even more important in the world-wide defense industries. Truly a remarkable event!
