Israel Tests Arrow II Anti-Missile System
Ynet – Israel’s defense establishment has completed a successful test of the Arrow 2 ballistic missile defense system on Tuesday. Using an interceptor missile, the operators were successful in destroying a target missile launched from a ship at sea. The system check was conducted at a designated field in the US.
According to a defense establishment source, the experiment was anticipatory of a “significant future threat in the Middle East, which might be directed at Israel.”
