|Follow j. on||and|
Israel said it conducted a successful live test of the Arrow 3 interceptor missile defense system.
The first flight test of the Arrow 3 was conducted Feb. 25 at an Israeli test range over the Mediterranean Sea by Israel’s Missile Defense Organization and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency.
The Arrow 3 interceptor was designed to provide an additional level of defense against ballistic missiles, add interception opportunities to the joint U.S.-Israel Arrow weapons system and improve Israel’s defenses against missile threats, according to Israel’s Defense Ministry.
Other Israeli anti-missile defense systems include Arrow 2, Iron Dome and David’s Sling. — jta
