US army decides against purchasing more Iron Dome batteries: Report

The United States army has decided against purchasing Israel's Iron Dome after conducting its first domestic test of the aerial missile defence system earlier this summer, Defense News reported.

Citing unnamed sources, Defense News reported on Wednesday that Washington opted for a system developed by Dynetics after comparative tests between the two systems in New Mexico last month.

Under a 2019 agreement, Israel sold two Iron Dome batteries to Washington, the first being delivered in late 2020 and the second in January 2021 for a cost of $373m.
