WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Army plans to buy a limited number of Iron Dome weapon systems while it weighs other options for more long-term needs, the military branch said in a statement on Wednesday.

"The Iron Dome will be assessed and experimented as a system that is currently available to protect deployed U.S. military service members against a wide variety of indirect fire threats and aerial threats," the Army said in a statement.
