The claim took off in May 2021.
Some social media users pointed out that the graphics are actually from a video game.
MENA: Iron Dome is Israel’s missile-defense system. According to Army-Technology, “Iron Dome is an effective, truck-towed, multi-mission mobile air defence system developed by Rafael Advanced Defence Systems.” It has a 90% success rate.
Misbar’s investigation found that the circulating video actually depicts altered graphics from the video game Arma 3. We conducted a reverse image search using stills from the video and found that they come from a modded simulation in Arma 3.
Since the video is from a game, and does not depict Iron Dome, we rate this claim as false.
