Israel says Arrow-3 anti-missile system passed live test in US

Published: Updated:

Israel’s US-backed Arrow-3 air defense system, billed as a bulwark against the ballistic missiles fielded by Iran and Syria, has passed a live interception test in Alaska, the Israeli Defence Ministry said on Sunday.

Jointly manufactured by Boeing Co, Arrow-3 is billed as capable of destroying missiles in space, an altitude that would destroy any non-conventional warheads safely. It passed the first full interception test over the Mediterranean Sea in 2015 and was deployed in Israel in 2017.
