So we all know about the launch of rockets that Gaza sent heading towards Israel, and this video is both harrowing and incredible.

Apparently, this "Iron Dome" in Israel was intercepting the rockets shot from Gaza in order to protect people and buildings on the ground from being hit by their landing. For all wondering, the Iron Dome is the weapons system in Israel that targets the launched rockets and hits them in the air to detonate them.

In a similar instance, a wedding gets interrupted as another "Iron Dome" successfully interrupts 12 rockets in this video here. All they are doing is trying to enjoy a wedding. And they still are forced to remain in the midst of war and fear:

Terrifying, it is, to see the rockets in the sky. When will the world end this, I ask you.

Thanks to Reddit, for heading up these video finds. That community never lets me down with breaking news.
