TEL AVIV, ISRAEL - NOVEMBER 18: In this handout provided by U.S. Embassy Tel Aviv, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak and U.S. Ambassador Dan Shapiro hold a press conference as they visit the Iron Dome battery on November 18, 2012 in Tel Aviv, Israel. At least 39 Palestinians and three Israeli's have died since conflict began a few days ago. Israeli troops have been massing on the border as hundreds of targets were hit in Gaza, including Hamas cabinet buildings. More then 240 rocket attacks were intercepted by the Iron Dome system. Ambassador Dan Shapiro said "If there's a more meaningful contribution of the United States to Israel's security than the Iron Dome system, I don't know what it is."
