Protesters in South Draw Fire From Syrian Forces

Libya has gotten the majority of press, however the Palestinians fired missiles into Israel. In response, the Israelis are deploying the "Iron Dome" early. The Iron Dome is anti-missile system but there are not enough systems to protect all of the Israeli borders. The border includes Syria which makes the unrest there even more disconcerting:

"The political crisis in Syria deepened Monday as Syrian forces in the restive southern city of Dara’a fired live ammunition in the air to disperse hundreds of pro-democracy protesters who had taken to the streets."
