Elihayu from Sderot was also discouraged by the system, "If Israeli people are still hiding, civilians are injured and even die, this system does not give a full solution to our security."

"I think it is inevitable that the army will enter Gaza to undertake an operation, it is the only real solution," he said.

In contrast, many residents from southern Israel are encouraged by Israel's non-violent approach to the issue.

Sasson from Sderot expressed his satisfaction and excitement about the new system, "I am very satisfied with the new system as it gives about a 90 percent solution to the rocket fire from Gaza, taking out of the equation most of southern Israel's population."

"Although, I support another operation in the Gaza Strip. I think it's necessary," Sasson told Xinhua.

"I feel reassured because although the system does not protect our kibbutz, at least someone is trying to do something for the security of our area for the first time in 10 years," said Reuhama from Nachal Oz, a kibbutz in northwestern Negev.

"The system is better than nothing, and I am very satisfied with the results over the weekend. My children finally feel safe," said Yossef from Ashkelon, where a battery of Iron Dome was deployed last Sunday and has intercepted several projectiles fired by Gaza militants.

Ronen, a resident from a surrounding Gaza Strip community was also satisfied with the system, "The Iron Dome is the best operational solution that we have ever had. But the fact that we need to use it shows that Israel and the Palestinians haven't worked a solution out to live together in peace in this part of the world."
