The Ministry of Defense announced on Friday that it conducted a successful test on the “Arrow” anti-missile system. The experiment tested the system’s enhanced capabilities of dealing with ballistic missiles such as the Scud and the Iranian Shihab.
Defense Minister Ehud Barak congratulated all those who took part in the successful test, which was performed this morning as part of a multi-year program between Israel and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency.
The Arrow 3 system is said to have similar capabilities as those interception systems present on U.S. Aegis destroyers, being able to intercept missiles at great altitudes and distances.
Last week it was reported that Israel and the United States have teamed up to export the Arrow anti-missile system to South Korea for $1 billion. Israel denied the report.
