Israel has deployed its missile defense system over Tel Aviv, Israeli media reported Friday, with fears a possible United States attack on Syria could trigger revenge attacks on Israel.
Army radio said that a battery of the mobile system had been set up Friday morning in the greater Tel aviv area, AFP reported. On Thursday Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu said the Iron Dome system was being deployed in order to look after Israel's current security needs.  "We have decided to deploy Iron Dome and other interceptors," Netanyahu said Thursday night in a statement as he went into security talks at the defense ministry in Tel Aviv."We are not involved in the war in Syria. But I repeat: if anyone tries to harm Israeli citizens, the Israeli army will respond with force," Netanyahu said in other remarks broadcast by Israeli television. Meanwhile, Lebanon's Daily Star newspaper reported that Israeli forces Thursday launched a military drill in the border village of Ghajar. 
Israeli troops in tanks and armored personnel carriers were seen moving about along the Abbasieh front of Ghajar on the edge of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, with the sound of at least 20 artillery shells heard coming from the Golan during the morning drill, the paper reported.
