Israel Announces Successful Test of the Arrow 3 Missile System

Israel, US successfully test Arrow 3 long-range ballistic missile interceptor

Israel's Ministry of Defense (MoD) announced Monday that it had conducted another successful trial of the Arrow 3 anti-ballistic defense system.

Arrow 3 is created to shoot down intercontinental ballistic missiles, while incapacitating nuclear, chemical, biological, or conventional warheads.

The Defense Ministry stated the Arrow-3 Interceptor was "launched and completed its mission".

The Arrow-3 is Israel's most advanced missile-defense system.

"At 2:30, the Israeli defense Ministry and the Ministry of defense conducted a successful test of "Arrow 3" (Arrow-3), created to intercept ballistic missiles outside the atmosphere", - said the defense Ministry of Israel.

It aims to offer broadband speeds comparable to fiber optic networks and also bring 5G-like service to billions around the world. SpaceX has responded that its plan meets all safety standards and allows for adequate buffers of space between other satellites.

Tensions between arch foes Iran and Israel have been mounting in recent months, with Israel fearing that Tehran is trying to establish a permanent presence in Syria as part of an effort to become a greater regional power in the Middle East. In December, a test was canceled due to safety concerns and in January, another test was called off because of a data transfer problem. "We are focused on expansion and improvement of our missile defense system to shoot down missiles in the air", - said the American leader. The system was handed over to the Israeli Air force in January 2017 and includes four layers - Iron Dome and David's Sling, and the Arrow 2 and Arrow 3 systems.

Israel has previously conducted successful tests with the interceptor. In a statement, the Defense Ministry said that the test missile was sacked at a target that, had it been a real one, would have been directed at Israel.

The Arrow 3 system was delivered to the Israeli Air Force for operational use in January 2017.

The Arrow was developed jointly by Israel and the United States, with Boeing, Elta, Elbit Systems, Israel Military Industries, Israel Aerospace Industries and Rafael all participating in development and manufacture.
