The US military has deployed one of its two Iron Dome anti-missile systems to its Pacific territory of Guam after raising concerns of instability in the region

The system, developed in Israel, is currently being tested in Guam as part of American effort to defend the territory from the threat of Chinese missiles

On Sunday, satellite images show China building a network of missile silos in the desert, prompting Japan and South Korea to gear up with their own missiles
